Heart of the Wilderness

Prices and Booking

For guided mountain walks I charge:


£80 per day for 1 or 2 people

£100 for a group of 3

£120 for a group of 4

£140 for a group of 5

£160 for a group of 6


The maximum group size is 6, but may be smaller depending on my assessment based on the skill and experience of the individuals and the terrain of the walk.


To book:


Please phone or e-mail me initially to discuss what you are wanting from your day in the mountains, the date(s) you're thinking of and whatever else you may wish to discuss.


On booking I require a 25% non-refundable deposit. The balance is to be paid 4 weeks prior to the days guiding. If you are booking within 4 weeks of your guided walk I require full payment. I do accept short notice bookings, dependent on my availability so please contact me to discuss. I accept cheques made payable to Dale Marshall bank transfers and cash. I do not accept card payments.




If you cancel your booking before 7 days of your guided mountain walk 50% of your booking fee will be returned to you. Less than a week no refund will be given.


In the event of unforeseen circumstances and I need to cancel your booking every attempt will be made to arrange a mutually agreeable alternative date. If this cannot be done you will receive a full refund.




I make decisions on route choice in the mountains partly based on what you tell me about yourself - your level of fitness, experience so it is important that we discuss this when you make a booking. It is important that you tell me about any medical condition that may impact on your health and wellbeing when out in the mountains.


At times it may not be safe to do a particular route/itinerary that has been agreed upon due to the mountain weather conditions. In this case a change in route may be necessary.
