Omega Guiding is all about brilliant Scottish adventures.
Rob our Owner started Omega Guiding a few years ago after living in the Highlands for 10 years. It was born from a love of getting to introduce people to the amazing adventures that Scotland can provide. Now we run trips all over Scotland, taking people to some of the places we love to visit ourselves and sharing our passion for the outdoors.
All of our guides, instructors & coaches have been trained and assessed to highest standards of the National Governing Bodies in the UK. They are fully qualified within the remit of the awards of which they hold. We take every precaution to assess, evaluate & manage the risk in the environment we take you, but participants are reminded that although all the risks we assess and manage there is always still risk involved to the participant of injury or death.
The activities that Omega Guiding offers are all delivered following the guidelines as outlined in the company Standard Operating Procedures and Risk Assessments. However, as with any physical activity there remains a degree of risk and the Activity can be physically, mentally and emotionally demanding.

We can make no refunds of fees paid to members so excluded.
