      Mini Bio

      After completing a degree in environmental science I started working in the outdoor industry and haven’t looked back since. I have lived and worked in the mountains of the UK for the last ten years.

      My main passions of climbing and mountaineering have lead me on adventures all over the world and I also enjoy running and cycling.

      Place to Play

      Cannot beat the wild north west of Scotland for a climbing or mountaineering adventure in summer or winter conditions.

      Not a lot of people know this

      I have completed several ultra marathons and hope to enter the marathon des sables in the future.

      As mentioned Dave was great. He was very enthusiastic about the area and keen to show it to you. He was also good at getting you to push yourself out of your comfort level.

      Dave is an excellent guide and his passion for the outdoors is wonderful, and because he is professional and competent and knows the area really well, we didn't have to worry about a thing.
