    Mini Bio

    Climbing, then teaching, has led me around the mountain areas of Britain, latterly spending 20 years as head teacher in an outdoor education centre in North Wales. Expeditions have taken me from ski touring in Alaska, first kayak descents in Nepal and Peru, to waveskiing in Oz.

    Now I spend my time ski teaching in Italy in winter and guiding on Scotland’s mountains, coasts and rivers year round.

    Place to Play

    Where the flow and the seasons take me: 750 kms of Canadian Arctic river and seeing no one else but my companions; skiing powder in the Caucasus or backpacking with my wife in Patagonia. But where do I spend most of my time? Scotland, and in Scotland – the Cairngorms! I’m a very lucky man!

    Not Many People Know

    I’ve kayaking across the Pentland Firth to the base of the Old Man of Hoy, climbed it and paddled on round to Kirkwall.

    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.
