I'm a keen climber and mountaineer out living the dream; whether it's off somewhere exciting on my own personal adventures or sharing my passion whilst working with clients. I really enjoy working with psyched people who want to progress their skills so they can have their own adventures and achieve their outdoor goals whatever they may be. Learning to Ice Axe arrest for the first time sliding down a snowy slope in the Cairngorms on a Winter Skills course, tying into a rope for their first trad lead on a Rock Climbing course or the moment when suddenly navigation finally starts to make sense and the compass isn't some alien tool anymore. These are the moments when a whole world of adventure is opened up and why I get a real kick out of instructing.
Happy adventures!

I have known Stuart for a number of years and have trained and assessed him for his Winter ML. He has also worked for me on NGB awards on a number of occasions, the feedback has always been very positive. He is a very capable instructor and enthusiastic about the outdoors. Stuart is well organised, efficient, friendly and approachable. Phill George IFMGA / MIC
