    Mini bio:

    I live in Inverness with my young family and I am a Gaelic speaker.
    When not guiding you may spot me hiking or biking up a Scottish mountain or going on a family walk in the beautiful Highlands and Islands.
    I have over 25 years experience of hiking, climbing and biking the mountains of Scotland and beyond. I have completed all 282 of Scotland’s Munro mountains as well as scaling Mont Blanc and the Dent du Geant in the Alps.

    Places to Play:

    I’m probably at my happiest on the coastal mountains of the West Highlands and Islands.

    Not a lot of people know this:

    I’m a volunteer director of a Gaelic language charity in Inverness.

    I hatched a plan in lockdown to scale all of Scotland’s island Corbett hills (over 2500 feet) in a one-er. I did it self supported – on foot up the hills then cycling to the next hill and camping at night. It involved 11 Corbetts, 10 islands and 13 ferries. It took me 2 weeks in 2021, and was an amazing experience. The isle of Harris was probably the highlight, as well as all the great people I met.

    Extremely pleased with our guide. Greatly appreciated his hiking expertise. He was friendly and approachable. He provided flexibility in our daily activities. He met our every need. He was prompt. He gave us great insight into Scotland and the Highlands. He was tolerant of our quirkiness! Would highly recommend him.

    Our guide, Allen, had a diverse group. He had the difficult job of meeting each of our expectations. Felt that the group ability level was very wide and some of the participates made it hard to get general agreement on "plans" for the day. It was no fault of the guide but the team.

    Make Trip Private

    Sometimes it's nice to get family and friends together and travel privately for some quality time. This means you benefit from all the features of the group departure, including hand-picked accommodation and expert local guides and we'll take care of it all. Then you can make your choice of departures dates and we'll get back to you to finalise the details.

    We work together with our team of guides to decide which departures they lead each year. As part of that, guides provide available dates that they are free to be booked. This means that any of the dates you see in the first field of the form below, could be perfect for your private departure or customised tour.
