    Mini Bio

    I moved to North Wales to study and became an avid rock climber and mountain walker. Nowadays I tend to opt for running, hiking, bike touring, and swimming in whatever water I can find. Having climbed, walked and bike toured in many countries Scotland has to be the highlighted top of many of these adventures, from running in the Rum Cuillins, cycling the Applecross peninsula, climbing the in-accessible pinnacle on the Skye Cuillins and finding a remote loch for a dip.

    Aside from adventures I love pottering in my garden in North Wales with a lovely view of northern Snowdonia.

    I have worked as a Mountain Leader in North Wales for over 10 years, and more recently all over the UK leading walks, as well as some overseas trips. I have worked as a field teacher and as Access Warden for my local council in particular on promoted walking routes.

    I have a particular interest in plants which has led me to work as a botanist surveying remote parts of the Scottish Highlands and Islands.

    I also work as a gardener when at home in Wales.

    Jenn is really awesome. She made efforts to make the trip enjoyable for all. She worked hard. I really feel you should let your employees stay at the same hotels as your patrons. It makes me think that you don’t care for them.

    Jen was the best best best! We learned so much from her. She is full of knowledge and passion for what she does. We hope we will be able to be with Jen again one day in the future.

    Jen did a super job, she kept an eye on everyone, took good care of us and made every effort to explain to us what there was to see and do. We were very happy with her.

    Where to begin, right from the beginning of the tour, Jennifer was professional, amazingly organised and had every step of the trip planned. Jennifer was wonderfully natured and was always willing to alter the plans to suit us. Wilderness Scottland should be very proud to have her. If i were to book with the company again, I would definitely want her as my guild again.

    Absolutely fantastic. Jen quickly gauged the group’s ability and was very flexible day to day ensuring that the groups expectations were met. So knowledgeable about so many different things. She obviously loved her job and this was evident with her enthusiasm and love of the countryside. She is a huge asset to your team.

    Jen was really great, very knowledgeable. She adjusted each day according to how she felt our group was doing as a whole, and individually. Also, the talk and tour at the Beaver sanctuary was amazing! The guide there (I forgot his name) was very knowledgeable, and talked not only about the beavers, but also their positive impact on the environment, creating habitat, etc. More of this please!

    Our guide's energy and enthusiasm contributed to our enjoyment and her ideas for enhancing the itinerary all worked very well. In particular the trip to Ulva was a real highlight for me. She eventually managed the differing expectations of the members of our group very well, although as she and I discussed she could perhaps have identified the issues rather earlier in the trip.

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.
