      Being outside, being active and having an adventure – this is what motivates me and keeps me happy. Being able to share this with amazing people in beautiful places is a total win. I do this for fun, but also sometimes people pay me to do this and I am not going to argue with that. I have been working in the outdoor industry since finishing college 10 years ago and it has been great. My background is mostly in climbing and mountain based adventures but in recent years I have not been able to resist sea kayaking and mountain biking. This has now become part of my work as well as play. 

      Places to play

      Mountains. So many amazing places. The North West Highlands are incredible, I will always take an opportunity to adventure there – awesome mountains, rugged coast, so much space, freedom and beauty.

      Not many people know this

      I really like maths – but it just involves too much sitting down.

      Adventurer's Stories about Sarah

      Sarah was superb - she maintained a happy, friendly, professional and encouraging approach throughout the week, even when it was difficult to make plans that suited each one of us.

      The Guide is very kind, devoted and skilful. She organized the hickes very well according to the weather (wind and rain). She helped us a lot. We felt safe with her.

      Sarah Crowsley was terrific. She was very energetic and organized (good at estimating time requirements for various aspects the daily plan and making sure we neither had not enough time or too much to get through the schedule. Sarah was particularly impressive at picking out the daily activities to take advantage of the most favorable wind and weather conditions to make the most of each day. This meant that we varied from the itinerary on the WS website, which was perfectly fine - I think everyone appreciated the flexibility we had. Sarah was also very attentive to coaching us across the more challenging terrain that we had to navigate and was attentive to the variable capabilities among members of the group (e.g.., one woman had a knee that had been injured right before the trip started and needed some additional care and attention). I also have to give Sarah high grades for her dedication and willingness to undertake a couple of longer linear hikes where she had to retrace our steps, running, to pick up the van to collect us (from a beer garden in Lochinvar, twice)

      Sarah was awesome and warm and funny and answered questions if she didn't know one she made sure to research and get back to us later that evening or the next day! Her enthusiasm for her job was infectious! Inspired leader.

      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.
