Summer Walking

There is a lot of Scotland to explore! Why not explore it whilst developing sound mountain skills such as route selection, navigation and problem solving. Classic areas such as the Cairngorms, the Mamores and the central highlands are very accessible and offer stunning and diverse views. Add a bike and a little camping equipment and the sky is is the limit. Did I mention Skye? completely unique in challenge and severity in the UK. A little further to travel from the centres of population but steeped in history and literally gripping.

Summer courses can be 2 – 5 days long with a minimum of two people and a maximum of six. Now we call it summer, but winter weather can strike in pretty much any month of the year – and does! Learn what to take, how to solve issues and how to have an awesome and memorable experience despite of the weather. and if the weather is good, join me for a summit bivvy; you will remember it for the rest of your life; I promise! Areas covered during this week may (subject to weather and conditions) include:

  • Planning
  • Weather and conditions
  • Clothing and equipment 
  • Navigation and route finding
  • Camping and bivvying
  • Emergencies and evacuation (how to get off safely)

I’m actually more cheerful than I look! Perhaps a little jaded after a 3 Munro evening.
I’m happier than I look. It was a long run and it is dinner at 11.30pm!

Walk, run, bike, camp, bivvy. Let me know how I can give you the best possible mountain experience.

Mountain Bike the Highlands!
Sometimes the most efficient way to access this hills is by mountain bike – and fun too!
