Kendal Mountain Festival on Tour 2020 - Banchory

*EVENT POSTPONED* We have rescheduled this tour date to Thursday 24th September 2020. Final speakers to be confirmed and ticket holders have been notified.


Fire up your imagination with a thrilling night of adventure.

Watch a stunning collection of short films on the big screen, stories of human endurance and breathtaking environments, plus hear from Sal Montgomery, who has a passion for exploring that has led her to visit some of the world's most beautiful and remote locations.

When she's not working as a physiotherapist she's out conquering uncharted territory in her one-woman kayak. A former member of Team GB, Sal has joined numerous expeditions, usually with an all-male team. Most recently, she took on the role of safety kayaker to Steve Backshall on his upcoming series Expedition. 

A lover of adventure in all forms, when she’s not paddling through canyons or off big waterfalls, Sal can be found in the mountains, on the sea, or in a quaint coffee shop scribbling away in travel journals. 

As well as her personal blog, Sal writes for numerous magazines and websites, Rough Guides travel books and television documentaries.

One of the Kendal Mountain Festival presenting team will host the evening and there’ll be prizes from our tour partners.

This event takes place at: The Barn, Burn O Bennie, Banchory AB31 5QA.

With thanks to our Tour Presenting Partner Fjällräven and tour partners Lowe Alpine, Mountain Equipment, YETI, FATMAP and Pala Eyewear.
