My name is Andy Davidson
I am the owner of Up and Doon Guided Walks. Passionate about the mountains of Scotland I have spent my life exploring them in their different moods.I started off walking in the Deeside hills and Cairngorms as a young boy and teenager with my father. Young adulthood took me further and further into the remote corners of these vast mountains. Poking my nose in corries many miles from any road and exploring deeper and further each trip, I developed a love for backpacking and walking in the Cairngorms. My horizons eventually grew and it took me to other parts of the Highlands where the landscapes were alien and jagged from gentle rural Aberdeenshire and the vast horizons and skies of the Cairngorms. Due to this passion I have completed a number of the long distance routes including the Cape Wrath Trail. I have also spent quite a time climbing the mountain's known as the Munros and completed my first round in 2010. I also love scrambling which is one of the great things about living in Lochaber as there are a profusion of excellent routes fairly close by.
