Ecosse Mountains was set up in 2003. I am a Summer/Winter Mountaineering & Climbing Instructor which enables me to work in the UK and Norway on all aspects of mountaineering & climbing. I am also a full member of the Association of Mountaineering Instructors. and the AMI Scottish East MCI/WMCI trainee workshop trainer.
Norway Ice courses in Rjukan have been running since 2007. I have led successful Trekking trips twice to Mount Kenya and Killimanjaro and also twice to Mera Peak and Island Peak in Nepal working for Jagged Globe and Adventure Peaks.I am also an Associate member of staff at Scotland's National Outdoor Centre, Glenmore Lodge.
Originally from Dalkeith, just south of Edinburgh and based in the Highlands for nearly 20 years. I was lucky at secondary school to be introduced to outdoor education including walking and climbing, i really loved the outdoor environment and the challenge.
From 1988-1998, working in the Edinburgh area and having given up playing semi professional football, i spent most weekends "escaping" the city and venturing into the Scottish Mountains, walking and climbing as well as summer holiday trips to the Alps.
I did initially attend mountaineering courses which were fantastic and they really inspired me to get out and do more and i suppose eventually pushed me into changing career to a job in the outdoors. Some photos opposite of my own adventures.
Having been a client and having spent time working in an industry where service is key, i make it my priority to continue providing a quality Professional Service as a Mountain Instructor.
