    Mini Bio

    Born and educated in Edinburgh, I began my teaching career. Throughout over 40 years in education in Scotland and abroad, I have used the outdoors both as a classroom and for leisure. Some of my fondest memories are of introducing young people to the varied Scottish landscapes and encouraging them to develop their skills in a range of activities including skiing, hill walking, climbing, sailing, canoeing, and cycling. I now look forward to sharing my knowledge of Scotland with a different audience.

    Places to Play

    I have had the opportunity to work and travel across the world. However, from scaling mountains to strolling through its glens and along its shores Scotland is unique. Now living in Strathspey, I have the Cairngorm National Park on my doorstep and easy access to the spectacular west coast.

    Not a lot of people know this

    I lived and worked in Dubai for 6 years and took the opportunity to do a skydive over The Palm.

    Adventurer's Stories about Ian

    Ian was superb. He really did a good job. After struggling for 3 days trying to secure our flight to Scotland, it was really good to have things planned out for us.

    Ian Jones was just terrific. I have already sung praises for Ian. He was a perfect match. Lots of fun. Very knowledgeable. Fit in xtra golf for my son Andrew- in fact the Oban course was a real highlight for Andrew as t is the home course of Bob MacIntyre. Also Ian made wise input when I wanted to skip certain things and he just would not hear of it - Like Glencoe - OMG - so glad he made us go there. We felt so lucky to have him - like a family friend.

    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.
