Mountain Leader (UK)
Neil is a fully qualified UK Summer and Winter Mountain Leader based in Kendal, England. He has been guiding trips for more than 7 years.
When not guiding, he is an active member of Kendal Mountain Search & Rescue team, one of 12 volunteer search and rescue teams within the Lake District National Park that assist people to keep safe as they enjoy what this special part of the UK has to offer.
Keen to introduce others to a love of the outdoors, Neil has, for many years, been an active member of the Scout Association, delivering outdoor activities to children and teaching volunteer adults. He also coordinates a Volunteer Youth Conservation Programme on behalf of the National Park, so when not walking the trails can often be found high on the Fells helping maintain them with his group of young volunteers in whatever weather the Lake District may decide to throw at them.
As well as being extremely competent, knowledgeable and a great communicator, he is a genuine people-person with a heart of gold, bucket loads of empathy and a great sense of humour.
