Oliver is a keen outdoor enthusiast and mountain instructor. He works throughout the UK and when not working will be found exploring the hills, cliffs, coasts and waters. His work experience has ranged from multiple activities with school groups through to 'one to one' guiding on some of the most technical of the UK's mountains. He's always keen to learn and share his knowledge.
Here's what others have said:
"Over the course of a week in the highlands, our full day hiking around Loch Torridon was by far and away our favorite activity. Ollie, one of the hotel's mountain guides, planned the perfect trek for us of Beinn Alligin, which consists of a pair of munros and three additional horns. We would never have been able to have this amazing adventure or seen these awesome vistas without his expert guidance." - While working for Torridon Activities.
"Very good, very enthusiastic, very knowledgeable, good delivery of instruction" - Glasgow Academy, while working for Raasay House.
Winter Mountaineering and Climbing Instructor 27/02/2020 3.00

I've loved the outdoors since I was a child, enjoying walks with my parents along the coasts and over the moorlands of Devon and Cornwall. Once I left for University I discovered a love for climbing as well. This has taken me all over the UK and Europe.
In 2010 I decided I could no longer face spending the rest of my life in an office despite enjoying the work and signed up to the Mountain Leader Award. This and my personal experiences with friends, at work, and at the university club enabled me to get onto the Centre Assistant Scheme at Plas Y Brenin where I worked through the other awards and skills required to become a full time instructor.
I enjoy helping others safely discover the outdoors and wild places for themselves.

Ollie is a great person to be out on the hill with; measured, confident and reassuringly calm. He is always fun to climb with, regardless of the season, route or style, and his enthusiasm for the sport of mountaineering shines through when he is teaching others the skills to get out and about in the mountains.I always feel confident that Ollie will make safe and sensible decisions, regardless of what might be going on around him in terms of group or weather.His demeanor soothes everyone with him, even in potentially stressful situations.
