Cath Wilson – Instructor



Cath has been an instructor at Plas Y Brenin for 18 years and her experience is underpinned by a formal teaching background.

Her empathy, dedication and complete support will allow you to face challenges and achieve things you never thought possible.

Cath has enjoyed outdoor activities from a young age starting with family walking holidays to the Lake District. Trips to Activity Centres throughout her school years fostered her passion for the outdoors, this led to a summer season at Plas Y Brenin as a Trainee Instructor at the age of 18.

An outdoor adventure highlight for Cath was, one amazing May week in Scotland; climbing The Old Man of Hoy, The Old Man of Storr and Traversing the Cuillin Ridge on Skye. Cath is planning her next adventure – a climbing road trip to America.
