A Mull en­tre­pre­neur’s busi­ness has been crowned Scot­land’s Best Out­door Ad­ven­ture Ex­pe­ri­ence 2018.

Ewan Miles’s busi­ness, Na­ture Scot­land, was es­tab­lished in 2016 and sees him pro­vide wildlife tours on the is­land. He re­ceived the ac­co­lade at this year’s Scot­tish Out­door and Leisure Awards.

He said: ‘I am de­lighted to win the award for 2018. I feel that I have to­tally com­mit­ted my life to the busi­ness dur­ing the past few years to make it suc­cess­ful.

‘There have been a lot of re­wards but also a lot of chal­lenges as well, so re­ceiv­ing this tro­phy is a real high­light for me.’
