Guiding

We offer guided off-road runs in Scotland, tailor-made to requirements, from short runs providing an introduction to off-road running (both on and off trail), to multiday ('fastpacking') outings. Dates and locations to suit.

While running is our niche, we can also provide guiding for walking and multiday expeditions, within the usual remit of the Mountain Leader qualification.
