Hello, I'm Ben and live in Ullapool in the North-West of Scotland. When I first moved over I lived in Edinburgh for 7 years before making the big move. I'm an International Mountain Leader since March 2018 and a Mountain Leader since 2013. I'm always looking for opportunities to explore new treks, walks and tours. If you are interested in a very open-minded guide please feel free to contact me. I`m interested in everything to do with the outdoors, coaching and motivating.

Since I moved from Germany December 2011, I put every minute into the outdoors and hillwalking in Scotland. In less then a 1 1/2 years after my training I gained enough Experiance to go for the assessment and passed. Most of my last three summer seasons I work as a guide for various German/Scottish companies mostly with walking and hill walking groups. Since 2012 my partner and me started with our own business adventure Mckenzie Mountaineering and we will develop this in the future to come. I'm open for any adventures, mountain days or just a fun day out with friends, clients or mentors. I'm now an IML and another big part will play more and more long-distance-treks in the world.
Please free to contact me for further questions and information under info@mckenziemountaineering.com.

I have accompanied Ben on many hill days over several years of walking. We have mountaineered in summer and winter conditions, throughout Scotland and have over the last two years have also trekked in high mountain ranges in Europe and North Africa. Ben is a highly competent and confident mountaineer with great people skills, patience and empathy, and an indepth understanding of the diversity of the weather conditions and safety in the mountain environment.
