I am a fully qualified Summer and Winter Mountain Leader, and have been leading groups and individuals in the Scottish mountains and further afield for over 20 years. Based in Stirling, Scotland, ideally placed to go East or West, wherever the weather is best, and can provide a lift from Edinburgh or Glasgow airports.
Thinking of venturing out into the mountains for the first time, doing new routes, visiting new places, bagging summits or just expanding your experience in the mountains? Let me help you go that little bit further.
Experience an epic journey through the Western Highlands, from the Bonnie Banks of Loch Lomond up and over the desolate and haunting Rannoch Moor, to the majestic and brooding Glencoe, scene of the famous massacre of 1692. Past Fort William and Ben Nevis, to Glenfinnan and finally to Mallaig on the west coast, with tremendous hiking amongst some of Scotland's grandest scenery and where the history and culture comes alive through our experienced local guides. Scotland's famous Highland hospitality is fully inclusive at all three wonderful hotels along our trail.
