USUALLY found venturing down cascading rivers and waterfalls, through deep canyons in some of the world’s most remote locations, kayaker Sal Montgomery will be bringing stories of her adventures to Dunfermline.

She'll be in the city on Wednesday, March 8, as part of a two-week tour for the Royal Scottish Geographical Society’s Inspiring People talks programme.

Sal said: “I'm honestly so excited to be meeting with and sharing my stories with everyone on the tour, as well as being back in one of my favourite places for adventures!

"Although based around my recent kayaking roadtrip, the talk is about so much more than waterfalls and whitewater rapids.

"Come and join us for adventure, travel, friendships, lessons learnt and of course, a good amount of fun!”

One of Britain’s leading adventure kayakers, Sal Montgomery has led several world-first expeditions, including as an expert for TV documentaries and short films.

Then in 2019, as for so many of us, the pandemic meant a sudden transition, from living in the Amazonian jungle to working in a major UK hospital during a global health emergency.

National lockdowns may have put her travels on hold, but that didn’t mean that her craving for adventure was dimmed.

RSGS chief executive Mike Robinson said: “We are very excited to host Sal for two weeks’ worth of talks across Scotland, as she shares her latest stories and adventures from road-tripping around America and British Columbia with her kayak.”

The talk begins at 7pm at Dunfermline High School.

Tickets are free for RSGS members, students and under-18s and £10 for general admission.

You can book online at and some may also be available at the door for cash only.
