McDougall Mountaineering


I started McDougall Mountaineering in the summer of 2015, following my dream of being an instructor in the Outdoors. As a Summer and Winter Mountain Leader I am qualified to lead groups in all the conditions were are likely to face in Scotland.


As a keen mountain walker and runner, I believe there are few places in the world as amazing and beautiful as the Cairngorms National Park in which to learn new skills and to push yourself. I am based in Aberdeen and within easy reach of both Lochnagar and the Cairngorms.


After completing several different jobs including stints in London as an Engineer, an Officer in the British Army and Project Management in Aberdeen I took the leap and started something I am truly passionate about - leading and developing people in the Scottish Highlands.
