James Orpwood Mountaineering

James Orpwood Mountaineering


James Orpwood Mountaineering provides guided hill walking and mountain skills training in the Scottish Highlands. We will plan a fantastic day for you and your group in the spectacular scenery of Scotland's mountains. And if this sounds too energetic, we offer a range of low-level walks exploring some of the glens, forests, rivers and lochs of the Cairngorms National Park, offering family friendly options to explore, and hopefully spot some of our local wildlife at the same time! James Orpwood Mountaineering is owned and managed by James Orpwood. Enthusiastic and approachable, James is thrilled to share his love of the outdoors with others. James is a passionate and committed mountaineer and mountain biker. A former fisheries scientist, James changed career direction in order to pursue his passion for the outdoors full time. James lives with his wife in Aviemore in the heart of the Cairngorms National Park.
