COVID-19 has had and will continue to have a significant impact on our lives and how we live. We do not know what the long term future looks like from a pandemic perspective; judging the short term is hard enough. What we can do is follow the guidance that our government is providing: Scottish Government COVID-19 Guidance and the Mountaineering Scotland guidance.

We are working and are able to follow the guidelines. I have been working in the hills with clients by employing sensible measures. For the time being, until further guidance I shall be remaining within Stirling and not venturing outside this Tier 3 area. I will be providing technical advice and delivering first aid training – both face to face in the coming weeks. All of these activities I can undertake by employing sensible and practical measures as recommended by governing bodies.

I am my triathlon club’s COVID-19 Officer and as such have received training and am custodian of the appropriate risk assessments for three sports and associated coaching. Please be assured of my commitment to our collective health and well being.

We can enjoy the hills safely.
