Rauri Morgan on New Lives in the Wild

Ben Fogle travels to the north coast of Northern Ireland to visit Rauri on the remote island of Rathlin.

Rauri turned his back on the corporate world and moved to a 500-year-old cottage eight years ago, an heirloom left from his family. He has renovated the cottage into a cosy home which he shares with his dog, Fionn.

The former HR executive revealed how he was approached to star on the show. He said (via News Letter):

“They found me. I am part of the Workaway scheme where people come and stay for a week or two and help out around the house, and that’s how they found me. I kind of ignored them for a while and then they spoke to a friend of mine and she put them in contact with me.”

Is Rauri on Instagram?

We couldn’t find a public Instagram profile that belongs to Rauri. It’s very likely that his account is private if he is on the social media platform.

But he can be found on Twitter under the handle @Rauri where he has 221 followers.

On his bio, Rauri writes that he is an “Island Dweller” and his last tweets date back to early 2018.
