      Mini Bio

      Most people call me Wally. I have worked as an outdoor leader since I was 18. A UK mountain leader and single pitch climbing award holder. I climb in summer/winter all over Europe and the UK.

      My Kayaking began on Welsh rivers and surfing waves on the Gower and Pembroke coast and has now become a bit more sedate since buying a sea boat.

      Place to Play

      West coast of Scotland. I live on the Isle of Arran, simply no place like it in Scotland. Mountains and Sea and road that goes all the way round.

      Not a lot of people know this 

      My grandfather designed those meat carving forks with the hinged cut guard on the back preventing a sliced hand when cutting towards yourself!

      Adventurer's Stories about Stuart

      Wally kept up to the minute checks on the rain, and even managed to move us to a covered table 5 minutes before the storm. He knows so much about the geology and history, teamed with Tim's historical knowledge they were a great team. thank you both

      Wally and Tim did a great job coming up with an alternative plan when our RIB had to be cancelled due to weather. They were very attentive to the needs of the group and adjusted plans as needed.

      Wally was a super attentive, responsible and well informed guide. I felt supported by him on the trip and he clearly cared for all of us. I would happily travel with him again!

      Wally is clearly a very experienced very competent very affable mountain guide.
      He worked very hard on preparation to ensure he knew all details of the route and the history.

      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.
