Guiding in the Black Cuillin

Phil Stevens

I’m a professional mountaineer based near Oban in the West Highlands of Scotland. I am a qualified climbing and mountaineering instructor, and an experienced guide in both summer and winter conditions.

Phil Stevens Guiding is my small sole-trading business, a one-man band, not an activity centre or a Guides' Bureau or an employer of other guides. So if you book with me, you get... me!
