With interesting advice and inspiration for getting out in the hills, Heather will offer loads of great tips for beginners and more experienced hillwalkers alike, highlighting skills that help you get the best out of your hill days – such as planning, navigation, kit, route choice and what to do in the event of an emergency.
But above all, she’ll inspire you with her love of Scotland’s hills and mountains and send you home determined to get out there and get up those hills.
With a lifetime’s experience in the mountains, Heather works full-time for Mountaineering Scotland as the Mountain Safety Advisor and is based at Glenmore Lodge in the Cairngorms. Heather holds her Mountain Instructor Certificate and has taught for many years in the mountains of Britain as well as being a member of Cairngorm Mountain Rescue Team for 16 years. In her spare time, she is an active mountaineer, climber, sea kayaker and mountain biker. Well known on the outdoor talk circuit, her events are extremely popular and often sold out.

Booking Terms and Conditions
Online Booking and Payment
The Moray Walking & Outdoor Festival is run by the Moray Way Association and sells tickets on behalf of event providers unless otherwise specified. This means that the final contract for your purchase will be between you and the event provider.
When you place an order you will automatically receive an email from us. Your order constitutes an offer made to us to purchase the services specified in the order.
When payment is received you will receive a further email confirming acceptance of your offer. It is your responsibility to check that the confirmation issued to you is accurate.
We accept all major Credit and Debit cards, PayPal, BACS and cheque. Cheques drawn on a UK bank will be accepted up to 14 days prior to the booking deadline for that event.
We will hold reservations for seven days pending receipt of full payment. If we do not receive payment within seven days, the booking will be cancelled and reserved places released back to the event provider.
Refunds – Customer cancellation
By law, customers have the right to cancel bookings and receive a full refund if cancellation is done within 14 days of the date of the original online booking.
Beyond 14 days and before May 31st refunds can be claimed subject to an administrative charge of £1 per cancelled place. Cancellations for orders paid by cheque will be subject to an additional fee of £1 per booking.
After May 31st we are unable to offer refunds as by then arrangements for events are in place and there is no guarantee that places will be resold.
Refunds – Provider cancellation
Refunds will be provided in full for any events cancelled by providers. We are unable to provide any reimbursement or refund for any accommodation or transport booked if circumstances require an event to be cancelled.
Changes to the programme
In the event of circumstances beyond our control, we reserve the right to alter the programme and events.
Basis of participation
The organisers of the Moray Walking and Outdoor Festival recognise that outdoor activities carry a risk of personal injury dependent in part upon the skills of participants and prevailing weather conditions, both outwith the control of the organisers. Those taking part do so at their own risk and are responsible for their own actions and safety. In broad terms, the basis of participation is similar to that of individuals joining in club activities.
A key difference is that many events are led and take participants on unfamiliar routes. On led events, the event leader is responsible for route finding. A minority of events, usually offered by commercial providers, use fully trained instructors who have an additional responsibility for the overall safety of participants. If in doubt contact the provider.
Descriptions of events
Every effort is made to ensure that all events are described accurately and fairly to allow participants to make informed decisions. Ultimately event descriptions on this site are the responsibility of each event provider and the officers of The Moray Way Association cannot be held responsible for any inaccuracies. If there is uncertainty over what participation in any event entails then enquiries should be made to seek clarification.
Suitability of events
The safety and enjoyment of individuals on any event is largely dependent upon the fitness, skills and health of each individual. It is expected that participants use the information provided to choose suitable events, and do not undertake any event, or challenge within an event, that is beyond their capability.
In the unlikely circumstance that on the day of the event the leader has good grounds to doubt the suitability of their event for any individual, then they have the right to refuse admission without refund.
Young People and Vulnerable Adults
Young people (under 16yrs) and vulnerable adults are welcome on appropriate events but must be accompanied by an appropriate carer or responsible adult. The accompanying adult is best placed to judge the capability of their charge and has the full responsibility both for judging the suitability of the event for that young person or vulnerable adult and for their actions during the event.
In general dogs are welcome on walks, providing dog owners act responsibly in accordance with the Scottish Outdoor Access Code and ensure that dogs are kept under close control in the vicinity of livestock and in rural areas. The decision on whether dogs are welcome on individual events is the prerogative of the event provider, especially where transport is part of the event. If there is any doubt please contact the event provider before booking the event.
