Mountain Days

I put on a number of planned guided trip, short notice days out and special events which are open to anyone:


Beginners day walks - Intro to rock climbing - Special events such as supporting Dark Skies Festivals - Educational Days Out


These are also social in that you can meet people with similar interests, start new friendships and explore more.

Have a look below at what takes your interest!


Guided Trips

Guided Trips & Special Events

I'm often around the Highlands, Yorkshire Dales, Lake District and Snowdonia throughout the year. I'll often put on day activities at relatively short notice to get the best weather depending on where I am.

  • Guided social walking days up some of the more popular mountains.

  • Intro to rock days at various crags

  • Special events - including supporting the Dark Skies Festival and educational days looking at mountain flora and fauna


I tend to publicise these on the AFS Mountaineering Facebook Page at short notice so do follow me! But there are a few social events I've planned in advance and these are shown below. 

On these Day events, I deal with the route planning and guiding, leaving you to enjoy the day, take photographs, have a new adventure and chat to folk or learn new skills on rock!

I grade the walks with a grading system of 1-5 (where 1 is a straight forward beginners day on good tracks and 5 are long and strenuous mountain days). 

So do follow us on Facebook to find out about events. However, the pre-planned social events are shown below and you can book onto these whenever you like. Please see below!


Autumn 2019 - Winter 2020

During Winter 2020 (January - March) I will mainly be around Aviemore and Fort William running winter skills courses. However it is likely that I'll put on some guided day walks around some of the Munros in the area. This will be entirely weather dependent and will be announced on our Facebook page. But the planned events are below:
