    Mini Bio

    To pursue a passion for adventure and the outdoors I decided to move to Scotland from an office-based career south of the border and have never looked back. I’ve always loved the outdoors and travel, spending every waking hour growing up exploring my local area in South East England, this then expanded to hillwalking in the Lake District and Snowdonia and subsequently mountaineering and rock climbing in Scotland and around the world.

    I am highly motivated to share my enthusiasm and knowledge and hope to inspire, educate and learn from the groups that I meet along the way.

    Place to Play

    Being based in Aberdeenshire, I have a soft spot for the Cairngorms, especially the solitude found high on the Cairngorm plateau. Failing this I am most likely to be found in or around Torridon or Assynt (weather permitting!!).

    Not a lot of people know this

    My dream is to spend time working in Antarctica.

    Specialist Subject Read More

    I’d say that I’m a jack of all trades although, being an ex Geography student and climber, I do have an interest in geology. Have no fear though, I have learned to find out whether clients share my interest before talking them through how a 4000 million year old piece of rock has formed!

    Publications Read More

    I’m still working on amassing mountaineering adventures – maybe one day I’ll write a book chronicling these!

    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.
