BEN DYSON

Founder Assynt Mountaineering

From a very early age I have always had a a keen interest in natural history and wild places.  Latterly I have been fortunate enough to live and work in the far north of Scotland, one of the wildest and least densely populated areas in northern Europe.


Modern life is increasingly hectic and we are all too often living our lives within the virtual world of our telephones, tablets and laptop computers. It is for this reason that I founded Assynt Mountaineering (AMTG).   Both myself and the AMTG Team wish to share our passion for this wild landscape and the flora and fauna that call it home.  

I have been regularly visiting the UK's mountains for over 30 years and hold the MTA Mountain Leader Award .
