Captain Scott’s only grandson and son of Sir Peter Scott, well known wildlife conservationist, founder of the Wildfowl and Wetlands Trust, and co-founder of WWF.
Falcon was brought up at the Slimbridge Wildfowl Trust with his two sisters. He started his career as a civil engineer building an underground railway system in Liverpool. After a period based in Yorkshire as an engineer and representative for a pipe lining company, Falcon set up as a self-employed builder, designing and building houses and extensions. He moved to Argyll in Scotland in 1999 to build a Holiday Lodge business, which he runs with his wife Jane, where they live. In the last 10 years he has designed and built his own traditional stone house, and more recently a large contemporary house for a local businessman.
Last year he spent 5 weeks as an Antarctic Heritage Trust carpenter working on his grandfather’s Terra Nova Expedition Hut at Cape Evans along with a team of experts from around the world. As Captain Scott’s main family representative, Falcon has been involved recently with events to celebrate the Centenary of the Terra Nova Expedition, including a visit to the South Pole (only two explorer relatives have been there before).
Falcon is a keen sailor, enjoys mountain climbing, and is an artist, lately developing his skill in painting. He has a daughter and two sons (who were christened on the RRS Discovery).
