Jim Sutherland

Jim Sutherland is the Founder of nineonesix-guiding which he established in 2003. He has climbed throughout the UK as well as the Swiss & French Alps, icefall climbing in Italy and a memorable ascent of a Ten Thousander in the United States.

Jim is often described as the most friendly man in Scotland and never short of a story to tell. Winter climbing is Jim’s real passion although he is developing a penchant for carrying his bike up and riding it down some of the Torridon mountains. His relaxed style on the hill will make for an unforgettable experience and he is as handy with a set of bagpipes as he is an ice axe.
