North Wales - guiding and instruction now available   following the recent relaxation of the Welsh government's Covid-19 measures, I'm now able to offer guided days out walking, scrambling or climbing in the Snowdonia mountains. These days can be arranged for both individuals and groups (including groups from multiple households). There are obviously some changes to how these activities are normally organised, so we can remain socially responsible and minimise the risk of virus transmission. I've outlined a few of these precautions on the bookings page. Also, feel free to give me a call and chat these things through before any decision to make a booking.


guidebooks  having spent a fair amount of time in the mountains of Scotland and Wales I made a bold step (for me anyway) and produced a couple of guidebooks - there's a brief outline of the books below. For more information and some sample pages, please visit Northern Edge Books, where you can also purchase both books directly from me.


-  Scotland's Winter Mountains with one axe  a guidebook of sorts, which I'm confident will make total sense to anyone who loves the Scotland's mountains. Perfect for a bit of armchair mountaineering. Available now from good independent bookshops and outdoor shops, as well as online retailers such as the Guardian Bookshop and the BMC.


-  North Wales Scrambles  a guide to 50 of the best mountain scrambles in North Wales and a book for anyone who likes biffing around in the Welsh mountains.

You can download some scrambles at northwalesscrambles a wee website I put together during lockdown to specifically promote the book, and the first bit of marketink I've done! There's a scramble at each grade, see what you think.
