Gary is based in Aviemore and runs his own guiding company, Tarmachan Mountaineering. For the last 20 years he has been guiding and instructing groups in The Scottish Mountains.

Born in Merseyside and soon realised that the city life was definitely not for him. Since a teenager he has been walking and climbing in other countries, including The Alps, Patagonia, New Zealand, Russia, Mexico, Spain & Iceland. His real love is The Scottish Mountains. Gary enjoys sharing my passion for the outdoors with others. Gary also guides on trekking groups in The Alps and larger expeditions to the likes of Patagonia and Russia.

Gary holds the Winter Mountain Leader Award and has his blog here.
