Trading as Outdoor Adventure Scotlnd, I have been working as an Instructor and GTCS registered teacher for over 30 years, from outdoor centres to schools and now working freelance. My work takes me across the mountains and hills of Scotland and I most enjoy providing special experiences for small groups as we explore and learn from our journeys together. Apart from my climbing and scrambling courses, primarily in Glencoe, Torridon and on Skye, I partner ‘Mountain Aid.org’ in providing accessible low-cost training and a range of mountain skills services for ‘The Outdoors and The People’. I also have special comtracts leading bespoke groups for ‘Steven Fallon Mountain Guiding’ and ‘Adventure Peaks’.
As a teacher and member of Scottish Mountain Rescue with OchilsMRT, where I have been a former Training Officer, I understnd the difficulties folk can have learning & practising naviagtion and on my courses, I use my experience of learning styles to enable every course participant to develop their confidence with navigation and demystify what to some is a ‘black art’ and this goes for all my mountaineering work, whoever you are!
Courses can be booked from my website and even better is to have me create a tailor-made course for you and your friends. Just ask!
