I grew up amongst the wild mountains of the North West Highlands, Scotland. As soon as I could walk, I was out in the mountains with my father, British Mountain Guide, Martin Moran. Throughout my life, all of my free time has been spent building a solid skill-base of walking, skiing and climbing with my dad and friends across Europe, North America and the Himalaya.
The mountains are a huge part of my life; a place where I find peace and harmony. It is for this reason that I embarked on the path to introduce other people to this special environment and give them new experiences in the mountains.
After six years of training and assessments, I qualified as a Winter Mountaineering and Climbing Instructor (WMCI) in 2013 and have enjoyed a varied career ever since.
I have lived and worked as a geography teacher in Majorca and Costa Rica but my love for the mountains of home prevails. Now based in Scotland, I work in the mountains full-time helping people achieve their goals and become safer and more confident mountaineers and climbers.
I have had the pleasure of leading expeditions in the Indian Himalaya, taking clients on rock climbing trips in the UK and abroad, as well as winter adventures in Norway and Scotland.
Having developed my coaching and mentoring skills as a Mountain Instructor over the last decade, I am lucky enough to share and explore awe-inspiring landscapes with those who accept the challenge.
My aim is to help you achieve your goals through my patience and positive encouragement. Get in touch to share your climbing aspirations.
