Bitten by the outdoors bug as a young Scout, Murray has spent over 30 years hill walking, Munro bagging, hiking, trekking, backpacking and mountaineering all over the United Kingdom.
A member of The Mountain Training Association, he is a qualified Mountain Leader, a Mountain Safety Advisor to the BBC, NNAS accredited navigation instructor, First Aid instructor with an outdoor emergency First Aid certificate and holder of a Level 3 Award in Education and Training.
Murray is at his best leading long distance, self sufficient backpacking trips through remote wilderness areas of Scotland.
Ron has many years walking experience, having completed the Munros in 1992, an interest he has remained actively involved in over the years. He has given many lectures to a wide variety of groups and organisations relating to his interests and experience and offers guided walks/visits relating to his interests and can tailor these to suit clients’ needs.
Ron is also a leading authority on the history and wildlife of the islands in the Firth of Forth and he was actively involved in enforcing the legislation which protects our wildlife and the environment.
When Murray is flat out with work, he can call on his old friend Allan to help him out. Allan has been walking in Scotland's hills for almost 40 years, gathering a vast amount of experience. Also a keen hill and trail runner, he has completed numerous Ultramarathons, all of which were in mountainous environments. Allan is a qualified Mountain Leader, an NNAS accredited navigation instructor and holds a Level 3 Award in Education and Training and travels the country delivering First AId and Health and Safety training to various national companies and organisations through our sister company Wayymark Training.
Allan has a good knowledge of Scottish history and is passionate about the Flora and Fauna which he enjoys sharing with others.
