For decades now, Martin Moran has made his living as a mountain guide based in Strathcarron, Wester Ross.
The Scottish hills have by no means bound or defined him though.
It was after his ascent of the North Face of the Eiger that he made his decision to take the mountain guide qualifications.
Martin has climbed and guided in the Alps, Norway, and the Himalayas, experiencing life changing adventures, near death experiences, meeting and guiding many interesting people.
Humour has never been far away, but neither has excitement and interest.
He has lived life in the mountains to the full and this is his story.
