The Mountain Factor

We are truly independent retailer established in Ambleside in 1992. Our aim is to be the best outdoor shop both in town and online, to offer our customers the best product and service at the best price. Our staff are fully trained to offer you the best advice, they have a passion for the outdoors. Joy is a member of the Local Sarda Team.

When she's not in the shop, she is out training with her search and rescue dog Einich or painting the beautiful paintings that you can see in our changing rooms. During the winter Kathy can be found in the Cairngorms working for SportScotand Avalanche Information Service as an avalanche observer.
