Welcome to Kingdom Guides.

As an experienced hill walking guide, Mountain Safety Advisor to the BBC, NNAS accredited navigation instructor, First Aid trainer and holder of a Level 3 Award in Education and Training, I offer clients guided walks of the mountainous areas of Scotland, nature walks, adventure treks, camping trips, winter mountaineering and more, all tailored to your requirements. Some of the more popular ascents could be a guided walk on one of the many routes up Ben Nevis, a beginners day on Ben Lawers, an introduction to scrambling and ridge walking at the Tarmachan ridge or a challenging and highly rewarding circular walk around the Ring of Steall in the Mamores. Perhaps you just need someone to navigate or help get you up a particularly challenging Munro, I'm here to help. Choose an available trip from the panel on the right or get in touch to discuss your specific requirements.
