Who We Are
Mark Eddy & Kate Ayres live in Ambleside in the heart of the Lake District. We were brought together through the outdoors and have been actively working in the outdoors for many years now. Between us we have ascended Scafell Pike hundreds of times from many different routes and have an excellent knowledge of the Lake District. We both hold the Mountain Leader award, the nationally recognized qualification for anyone leading guided walks in the mountainous regions of the UK. We are also members of the Mountain Training Association. We can offer an insight into the mountain environment and can probably answer most of your questions. We’ll certainly try our best!
We also run a multi-activity and guided walking business ‘Mountain Journeys’, based in Ambleside all year round and in Costa Blanca during the winter months where the climate is perfect for walking and climbing.
In our spare time we can be found in the mountains. Sometimes that’s for fell running, sometimes for rock climbing, other times for a good long walk.
Don, our border collie occasionally comes along on guided walks (we’ll always ask you first). He’s from working stock, but seems to have us working well for him and spends lots of his time sleeping, eating, and playing.
