Woman abandons mainland life to become professional huntress

A wildlife conservationist living on a remote Hebridean island with a population of just 22 people has told how she abandoned life on the mainland and a burgeoning career in journalism to become a professional huntress.

Attending an inner-city high school in Perth, before going on to study politics at Perth College University of the Highlands and Islands, Charlie Blance, 20, said she "stuck out like a sore thumb" in urban environments and craved a life in the wilderness.
