I put on a number of more adventurous planned guided treks which are open to anyone:


Weekend adventures - Wilderness backpacking adventures

Have a look below at what takes your interest!

If dates don't work or you want an adventure for you and your friends/family, please get in touch about private guiding


Big Weekend Adventures


These events are there for you to come along and experience something new.

Escaping the normal hustle and bustle of normal life for a few days.

Whether it's a first venture into the higher mountains, your first wilderness camping excursion or just to come and bag some Munros or Wainwrights or wherever with a group to meet new people.

I deal with the route planning and guiding, leaving you to enjoy the day, take photographs, have a new adventure and chat to folk!

I grade the walks and trips 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).

For a list of the upcoming bigger adventures please see below and click on the event you are interested in for more details and booking information!

18 The next three Munros (L-R) Beinn a'

Fisherfield Wilderness Munro Trek

Saturday 1st - Monday 3rd May 2021

Level 5 walk - Hard & long wilderness mountain days

The Fisherfield Forest contains perhaps the remotest Munros in Scotland. They can be done as separate but very long day walks. But the best way to explore them is backpacking in for a few days. One of the famous 6 Munros has been demoted from Munro status to a Corbett but is a majestic hill. Add potentially difficult river crossings, there's no wonder the view from A'Mhaigdean is considered the best in Britain - given the effort to get there!

Summer 2021

(July - September)


Glencoe Munros

Saturday 28th - Monday 30th August 2021

Level 4 walk - Hard & long mountain days

The mighty Glencoe stops tourists with awe and wonder at it's beauty. Buachaille Etive Mor from Rannoch Moor is regularly voted the most picturesque Munro and is a perfect pyramid. We'll do a number of day trips to bag the biggest Munros in the area.

We'll have the big days on the Saturday and Sunday, and have a shorter day Monday to allow everyone to get home.
