About Us

Dai Counsell

Originally from the Welsh valleys Dai has been in Applecross for the past 24 years. Working as an instructor at the Fairbridge outdoor centre from 1990 Dai continued his association with the organisation when it became the Venture Trust in 1995. His ability to work with a wide range of individuals and their needs allows Dai to easily introduce and guide people through their first kayak or climbing experiences.  A keen rock climber, mountaineer and sea kayaker Dai has worked with Mountain & Sea Guides since 1998 and has extensive local knowledge. Known for his friendly, easy going approach Dai continues to enjoy life on the Applecross peninsula and shows no sign of returning to the valleys any time soon.
