      Mini Bio

      My passion for the outdoors was introduced at an early age. Growing up in the outskirts of Glasgow made it easy to escape to the hills and one of my earliest ascents included Ben Lomond at age 6 in pink wellington boots! Since then I’ve grown up (a little bit!) and taken part in many excursions around Scotland and abroad in places such as Nepal, Iceland and New Zealand.

      After completing a degree in Environmental Geoscience I worked in Cambodia, New Zealand and Australia for two years before returning to the UK to continue working full-time in the outdoors. In the last 3 years I’ve worked in a range of places around the U.K, most recently in the Cairngorms. I enjoy passing on my passion for Scotland and it’s wild places and am excited to continue guiding for a long time into the future.

      Favourite place to play

      Very hard to choose! At the moment the west coast around Torridon as it is stunning in all weather and always surprises me with the variety.

      Adventurer's Stories about Jude

      Jude was excellent, helpful, friendly and took us to great places.

      Our guide was absolutely delightful. Competent, considerate and calm. She was an excellent driver, always prompt and cheerful and very knowledgeable.

      See my initial comments but we would follow Jude anywhere. We had a small group but the two of us had done a far bit of traveling while others in our group had less experience. She was equally attentive and supportive to all of the group's needs. And an excellent van driver!

      Jude was our guide and she was completely wonderful. She paid close attention to our interests and needs and made sure the trip was addressing them. She was informed, flexible, and accommodating. Best of all, she had a great sense of humor and kept things light and fun.

      As I said earlier, we were very happy with our guide, Jude. She was enthusiastic and fun. She took note of the things we were interested in and made sure those were a prominent part of our trip. She was competent, helpful, and made it a wonderful stress free trip for us.

      I thought Jude was brilliant, but I think she needs to be louder so everyone can hear her! :)

      have mentioned in previous comments how impressed I was with Jude and her service and friendliness. She had us organised each day and nothing was ever too much trouble if we wanted to visit a shop or place that wasn't on the list she sorted it for us. Couldn't have experienced a better guide!

      Our guide Jude was the best ever guide I have been with on any guided tour. So cheerful, positive, helpful and responsive to everyone’s needs. Such a pleasure to be with her company.

      Truly exceptional. Our guide was skilled at 'reading' the group and their needs, always on the ball, perceptive, energetic, and fun to be with.

      Jude was just lovely - friendly, knowledgeable, accommodating. Good advice on the options given the weather so that we did three very different but all memorable walks over the two days and at a pace which suited us. We really enjoyed spending the time with her.

      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.
