Episode 34 (Season 4): Guiding Hikes & Outdoor Diversity with Kirsty Pallas

Join me for a conversation with hiking guide and climbing instructor Kirsty Pallas. We’ll talk about her path to becoming a mountain leader, her passion for Argyll’s hidden gems and her work with Our Shared Outdoors.

Kirsty Pallas is a mountain guide based near Oban. She’s also a climbing instructor, so whether you are looking for a guide to take you on a relaxing day out or an instructor to keep you safe on a technical route – she’s up to the task.

To get a sense of our day hike with Kirsty, listen to last week’s episode Traces.

  • How Kirsty got into the outdoors as a child,
  • Her path towards becoming a mountain leader and climbing instructor,
  • Some of the challenges she faces in her job on the Scottish hills,
  • Her work with Our Shared Outdoors,
  • Diversity in the outdoor industry, and more.
