"The fleeting hour of life of those who love the hills is quickly spent...those who seek and find while there is still time will be blessed both in mind and body"
He was right. In the last 10 years I have been, and still am, on an amazing journey of discovery. Being in the outdoors isn’t just for recreation, but can be about the re-creation of ourselves.
It’s a journey that continues to inspire, educate and amaze me, a journey that I’m delighted to be sharing with others. That’s why here you will find several options: from guided walks to navigation training, to allowing me help plan your own adventure into the Scottish Highlands.
Earlier this year I was involved in a project hosted by Dawn Rainbolt of Wilderness Ireland. We discussed guiding from a female perspective, in particular the how, why and what of running an adventure journey that's a success for both the clients and the guide.

Hello and welcome to the new-look website. Those of you have known me for a while will perhaps have been familiar with the old website, designed by me. Enough said. It became apparent that a professional web designer was required and I hope you'll agree that this new website is a thousand times better that my amateur effort in the past.
"I went on a hike with Gill in 2019 and I can't recommend her highly enough. Our group was diverse in hiking skills and she managed to accommodate us all - setting expectations so that those in the group could choose to hike or not, and adding additional bits to the hikes to accommodate the more active among us. I also really enjoyed the historical facts about the areas where we were hiking. It was an added bonus to the beauty of the land around us."
