    Mini Bio

    I have been an outdoor enthusiast for 35 years, starting out rock climbing and mountaineering. I discovered mountain biking 30 years ago and have been on one ever since. I do venture onto road for training and have entered a few triathlons including the Big Ben Tri. I am passionate about leaving no trace and respecting the places I visit and travel through for future generations to enjoy.

    I moved to Aviemore 2 years ago from the central belt of Scotland and often wonder why I didn’t do it years ago. The opportunities for doorstep adventures and micro adventure are endless.

    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.
