Ewen on Ben More
What do you do when you don’t lead walks for the Arran Mountain Festival?
Socially I walk, climb, mountain bike, kayak and snowboard with family and friends. I also work in Health IT.

Why do you volunteer as an Arran Mountain Festival walk leader?

To help encourage others to experience the wonderful mountains on this island that I was lucky enough to grow up with.

Tell us about a favourite mountain moment.
Getting the end of the Liathach traverse in one piece.

What is your favourite Arran walk?
To the standing stones on Machrie Moor for a picnic, the whole family can enjoy it.

Which piece of kit would you not head into the hills without?
A map and compass.

What is your favourite breakfast before a long day out in the mountains?

Boiled eggs in a cup with toast and a cup of coffee.

Ewen is leading the Three Beinns horseshoe, Cioch na h-Oighe & Goatfell, Cir Mhor and Witch's Step & Castles walks.
