I love Scotland.I love exploring the beautiful mountains & glens of the Scottish Highlands.I love meeting people & sharing my passion. I decided to combine this energy into creating a small friendly guiding company that offers a highly personalized service for individuals or groups at an affordable price. So whether you want to hike the highest mountains,tackle one of my challenges,backpack through the mountains or just go for a wee walk with the family I have something for you.
