Adventures for You
Adventures for You
Bespoke private guiding is about you. Any bespoke event will be very much tailored to the experience you and your family/friends/colleagues, society or club want. Under 18s are welcome so long as parent/guardian is there too. Some routes or activities are unsuitable for younger kids.
If you've seen a course or event that you'd like to come on but the dates clash with something else, or if you want a corporate day out, hire a guide for one of the classic challenges (e.g. Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge), or want to brush up on some mountain skills, simply send an email to Fabian to get started. He will usually respond within a day or two if out in the mountains or sooner if not.
I always try and strike a balance between being affordable and trips going ahead versus rigid pricing so I take into account various factors such as the size of the group, location, season, complexity of the terrain and length of time out etc.
For clubs and societies who might want to form a strategic and regular partnership there will be discounts on regular bulk bookings. Weekday bookings are generally cheaper than weekends.
For the price you are getting an experienced and qualified mountain guide who can:
Manage the route planning beforehand and on the day(s),
Advise on equipment, clothing and hill/mountain craft for your own independent adventures,
Advise on different regions to visit which match your interests,
Provide some information about the landscape, flora and fauna we may encounter plus other interesting historical snippets if applicable! Fabian has a PhD in microbiology and molecular genetics and has undertaken peer-reviewed research exploring life in Antarctica among other places.
The Munros (there are 282 Mountains over 3,000ft in Scotland (or less romantically - 914m) are my speciality. If you're interested, visiting the Highlands and want some inspiration, or just want to get started I've put together a whole range of different walks that are particularly good (excluding Ben Nevis which, although the highest, you can get in touch about separately because, well, it's the highest!).

Simply send me an email and we'll arrange a call to discuss what you're looking for.
Prices will depend entirely on the nature of the event, location, number of days, season, number of people etc.
Once we've agreed on a plan and price you'll be happy with, I'll forward you a booking form to complete and payment details.
I'm often out in the mountains so it's best to start off with an email - I'll respond as soon as I get back to civilisation!
