Mapology is owned and run by Sion. At it’s core is the belief that being in the outdoors is good for you.

Positive experiences of the outdoors make all the difference in promoting our green spaces. Most sessions are run by  Sion himself, although on occasion you may see other trusted faces too.

We work with all ages from Primary School upwards. There is a course that suits your ability and experience – if you are unsure which one you should book then get in contact!

Sion has supported participants of the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award through their award for over 5 years, ensuring that all aspects of training are fun and engaging, and expeditions are challenging yet achievable.

With personal trips to China and South-East Asia as well as around Europe, Sion understands what it means to get outdoors. Now based in Edinburgh, Sion likes to head to the highlands to find his own solitude, and can often be seen trotting over the hills in his bright yellow waterproof trousers.
