As well as running Toughtags we also own and run a small mountaineering business that caters for all aspects of mountain activities. I (Jon) moved to Scotland in 1998 with the intention of studying Environmental Sciences at University and learning how to climb ice! Both of these goals have been achieved with many adventures (personal and professional) throughout Scotland and further afield. Our family is well settled in the Trossachs area and I run as much of this business as possible from local venues. The business was called Trossachs Mountain Guides for over ten years but now we’ve moved it under the Toughtags banner as Tagit Mountain Guides.
Day to day work varies from gentle walks in the lowlands to the extreme adventure of winter mountaineering and multi-pitch rock climbing and just about anything in between! Includes various advising, consultancy and staff training work for large businesses, developing and delivering various Outdoor Education programmes for a range of clients including Universities, delivering training for National Governing Body Awards and regularly delivering his other key products.
