Success of former OATS trainees highlighted by Cairngorms National Park

Former OATS trainee Julian Digby, owner, and director of Cairngorm Wilderness Contracts Ltd, has written a short blog post for Cairngorms National Park about his career in path building and maintenance since 2011.

In his blog, he discusses the ethos behind the outdoor conservation business he set up with fellow OATS trainees Stuart Taggart and Alan Wright, his work with OATS on projects like The Mountains and The People, and the effects of both the funding and path management crisis and Covid-19 on his business.
