Guided Adventures

Guided Walks; Big and Small

I offer guided adventure experiences throughout the year, covering a wide variety from gentle walks to high Munro summits. Our journeys are often themed – in keeping with a broad range of interests inspired by the beautiful Scottish landscape. Stargazing, nature walks, summit camps, nature writing, and of course walking for the sheer pleasure of walking.
