|Jamie Andrew is the incredible Scottish mountaineer who, despite having no hands and feet, has made some amazing ascents all over the world. As a quadruple amputee, Jamie has also made many other remarkable achievements, raising many thousands of pounds for charity along the way.“Hello and welcome to my website. The idea of this site is to give you an idea of who I am, what I do, and what I’m trying to achieve. It’s my hope that my experiences and achievements may in some way inspire others to tackle the obstacles they face in life and to achieve their full potential.
It seems to me that our greatest limitations are the ones we impose on ourselves. I want to encourage others to throw out these misconceptions and to be all they can be.”

It was brilliant to hear you speak at the Girlguiding Edinburgh Thank you Event. So inspiring and motivating!
I came across your story by chance. So what I want to tell you is, that I was impressed by the serenity you radiate, there is no lie no fake. You paid a high price but you have grown tremendously by what has happened to you. You are a man who overcame death, you have seen death. There are few people who share that.
All the best man, and a hug from Austria
Hi Jamie – I have seen and heard you speak at IMD on the High Performance Leadership over 40 times. Each time I am deeply touched and inspired by you and your story. To watch you inspire so many others as well is an honour. When I had cancer I thought of you through in the really tough moments and it really helped me through.
Your words, ‘I made the decision that this was going to be the lowest point of my life’, resonated through my head when I had, had a no hope diagnosis. They gave me the spark of light I needed to make the same decision and reignite hope in myself and for my family and friends.
Sending all my love and hugs – Isobel
I recently listened to you talk at an event at South Lanarkshire College in East Kilbride and just wanted to thank you for sharing your story with us. I wasn’t going to attend the event but I am so glad I did , hearing your story has made me look at things in a whole new light .
Thank you Jamie for sharing your story … Truly remarkable and I take inspiration to achieve each of my desired small steps.
Wonderful listening to you on the radio just now Jamie. Truly inspiring – thanks!
Glad you enjoyed it! Thanks, Jamie
It was so inspiring listening to your life story today at MacRobert Hall University of Aberdeen! You are a hero who did not let circumstances curtail your ambitions!
glad you enjoyed it! It was a great event.
All the best
Jamie, this weekend I climbed Snowdon… my first significant mountain walk.
You inspired me throughout my climb
per il Cervino,veramente bravo
Hi Jamie, I had the pleasure of hearing you speak at a TNT mgt. Just wanted to say congratulations on conquering the Matterhorn. All the best, Paul
Thanks so much. Glad you enjoyed the talk at TNT! See you again sometime.
Jamie, I introduce or interview inspirational folk every week but your story and motivational powers (like a superhero!) were really something new and special to me! Remarkable! I hope we meet again.
Hi Joey. Great to meet you too! A great night and I really enjoyed it. Hope to see you again someday. All the best, Jamie
Thank you for your inspiring presentation today in Brussels. You showed us that even if all seems to go wrong, you can have a dream that tells you what your first step will be.
Thanks for getting in touch. I’m glad that you enjoyed my presentation so much. It is great to know that my story makes such an impact on people and it is very encouraging for me to receive such positive feedback. I hope that the impression it leaves is a lasting one.
Good luck and I wish you great strength in tackling all the challenges that you face in your own life.
Powerful story Jamie, kinda lost for words and that’s not like me! I’ve no excuses being lucky enough to have what I have. I suppose you can reveal alot of hidden strength when someone or something trys to take it all from you. The silence throughout your talk speaks volumes, you made a big impact on everyone today. Good luck in your future adventures. I’ll bag a few hills in Edingburgh this May with my 4 year old daughter on her first mountaineering expedition.
Thanks Leo, glad you enjoyed it. Have fun in Edinburgh with your daughter! All the best, Jamie
Bom dia Ilustre por favor podes encaminhar para o google translete, para traduzir em ingles, estou a falar apartir de Angola ontem estive a ler um, suplemento do nosso Jornal Local, aqui em ANGOLA (Luanda ) Africa.
no qual o autor Dr. Amândio Vaz Velho, fez questão de mencionar o tua pagina oficial, para saber um pouco da tua vida e trajectória vim ver e deixar os meus cumprimentos.
Hi. Thanks for your message. I visited Angola in 2003 to witness the work being carried out by the Red Cross to help amputees. Wonderful country! Regards, Jamie
I started the day thinking it wasn’t going to be good. Then I heard you on the radio and guess what? It’s going to be a great day, thanks!
Jamie, was that you I passed near the top of Ben Lomond on Monday afternoon (1st May)? If it was you, you’ve grown a beard since you spoke at South Lanarkshire College. If it wasn’t you, there’s another quadruple amputee climbing mountains. Either way, you’re a far better mountaineer / hill walker than I’ll ever be! All the best!
Could have been me! And that wasn’t so much a beard as forgetting to shave for a few days!
All the best, Jamie
Hello, Jamie Andrew. I am the 9th grade student who interviewed you for my digital journalism feature article at the Upper school of Zurich International School in March 13th. I wanted to say your story shows great resilience and it taught me a lot. In some of my classes we did units on leadership and I used examples of your story and how you inspire people with disabilities. It was a pleasure to meet you and I wanted to thank you very much for your time.
Hi Andres. Good to hear from you again. I hope that your project went well and I wish you all the best for the future. Kind regards, Jamie
I had the pleasure to listen to you during your intervention at AccorHotels.
I wanted to thank you for the strength and richness of your testimony.
I was impressed by your ability to make a tragic event a great human adventure. You have brilliantly proved that love and courage can lift mountains.
I am convinced that your testimony helps to change our outlook on life and the world. He changed mine.
