    Mini Bio

    I’m a keen hiker, cyclist, climber, mountaineer and skier, not necessarily in that order.

    My interest in the outdoors started in 1989 when as a BT apprentice I was sent on an outward bounds course. We spent a week walking, climbing and camping in Purbeck, Dorset. This led me to join a Mountaineering club and a joy of climbing and hiking started, ultimately leading to my qualifications as an Outdoor Professional.

    Places to play

    I’m happy anywhere outside. I love lots of different areas of Scotland and I’ve still got lots more to discover.

    Not a lot of People know this

    My wife thinks I have Scandinavian heritage as I have a fondness for pickled fish for breakfast and the Norwegian delicacy Brunost.

    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.
