  • Inverlael Munros, Aug'18

    Fantastic weekend despite the dreich weather, in no small part to Kevin who was an outstanding guide. Seana Braigh was one of the best hill days I've had in 30 years and there is no doubt that was in no small part to Kevin's knowledge of the hills in general and geography and geology of the area in particular.

  • Navigation in the Perthshire Hills, Jun'18

    I just wanted to feed back and say I had a great time on the course on Saturday. Emma was a great leader and really appreciated the time she took with everyone. I have learnt so much and makes me even more excited to get out on the hills.

  • Torridon's Giants, Jun'18

    I would like to say "thank you" for our day on Liathach and to Dave and John for keeping us going and especially for arranging the sun to shine on both summits, so we could have great views and photos to remember ! For me it was a personal ambition fulfilled having missed this one on my previous trip to Torridon.

  • Hiking in Pentlands, Jun'18

    Hi Steven, I just wanted to drop you a quick note to say a big THANK YOU to you and all the guides, everyone had a great afternoon and the feedback has been fantastic.

    Some of the comments we've had :

    "I was on the hiking activity. Well organised, great, friendly & knowledgeable activity leaders with a flexible approach as to which trails we took, and a relaxed and sociable group of people with differing levels of experience".

    "I did the Hillwalking activity which was a new one and thoroughly enjoyed it. The walk itself was good (I did struggle up the damn hill though!), it was just the right length and the 'guides' were fab - friendly, enthusiastic and knowledgeable".

  • Blackmount Munros, Apr'18

    Hi Steven just like to say had a fabulous two days and Johnny Walker was fantastic. I will say that the second day was probably most memorable hill day I have ever experienced. Here is to more Fallon Fives in future.

  • Bespoke Days, Mar'18

    Just wanted to thank you for connecting us to Richard at the last minute so that we could still hill hike this weekend (of the 'Beast from the East'). Despite the extreme and inclement weather we managed to get there and it was really worthwhile. Richard was a wonderful guide. He was informed, knew the mountains so well, humorous and kept us safe!

  • Bespoke Winter Skills, Feb'18

    Please pass-on our thanks to Dave and John for an excellent day on the hill. It was great to refresh ourselves and practise some Winter Mountaineering skills. For myself, it was especially useful to learn of the Scottish Mountain avalanche risk service and it's interpretation.

  • Cairngorm, Dec'17

    Would just like to say a huge thank you for making the day up Cairngorm Mountain on the 28th a fantastic experience. Both Laura and myself had a fantastic day-we certainly ticked the box off on her bucket list and what an experience, the orgainising of emails leading up to the day and the professionalism of Richard on the day was faultless, even the clouds lifting on our descent was perfect. Thank you both so so much. You have certainly given us the bug and shall return to see the summer season!

  • Glencoe Munros, Dec'17

    Just wanted to say what an absolutely fantastic couple of days we had in Glencoe. Feels like a dream now! Weather was perfect and Johnny was exceptional. I will definitely be booking up for winter walking through yourself each year now, I'm completely addicted!! Thanks so much!

  • Strathfarrar, Nov'17

    I wanted to thank you and your tremendous guides, Richard and Johnny, for a superb weekend. They were great fun, very knowledgeable and certainly not snobbish of novices. I'm really new to this past time having just started in the summer. It exceeded all my expectations, as did the snow. I could become quite hooked.

  • Aonach Eagach, Jul'17

    I just wanted to drop a note after our Aonach Eagach trip yesterday. What a day it was, it really was fantastic! I was so happy to have done the ridge and we had the best guide that we could have asked for. I have been scared of doing the ridge for a very long time, due to what I have heard and seen on the web. Heights and exposure are usually not good for me, or the feeling of going vertically down! But I was never going to get this route/these munros done without getting up there. Getting a guide was the way forward for me to do this, what a great decision, Andy really made the day a memorable one for me!

    I now think I need to see what else I want to do, another route somewhere...so, here's to another great trip in the future!

    Karen Farquhar

  • Deepest Affric, Jul'17

    Thank you for sending through the blog and pictures. What a great way to remember the weekend.

    This was my first experience with your team. What a great introduction with great leaders in yourself and David, and a great group of fellow Munro baggers. Your knowledge of the hills and the optimum way to navigate to a really remote summit built real confidence in me. And I managed my target of 6 munros in the weekend. My thanks to David for being game to ascend an additional Munro.

    I planned this as a taster to see how I got on. I now plan to book on other events in 2018 so I can increase my Munro tally with your expert help. I look forward to seeing next year's listing.

  • Navigation in the Pentlands, May'17

    A belated, but very big, thank you for the incredibly useful and enjoyable day last Thursday. I got a great deal out of the course and had a couple of hours on the Pentlands yesterday and felt I knew where I was and where I was going, which was very reassuring. I came across a new man made feature that wasn't on my map, but I was able to use contours, landlines and man made features with my compass along the way! Many thanks again for a great course.

    Alex Graham

  • Saddle and Sgine na Sgine, April'17

    Fantastic day. Al and David were superb guides. Watched them walking, listened to their advice and their previous experiences. I took it in and learned a good few tips. The pace was perfect. Walk was tremendous. Many thanks to yourself for organising this and I look forward to Aonach Eagach in June.

    Alex McBride

  • Ben Lui and neighbours, February'17

    Just wanted to say I had an excellent time this past weekend on Ben Lui, Ben Oss and the other two Munros. Emma and John were brilliant and most attentive. I'll definitely be booking future trips as a result of my recent experience.

  • Torridon and the Mamores, October'16

    Have just got back from Torridon and the Mamores. I think I have legs still but not certain at this stage. Had a fabulous time, wanted to thank you for this experience and thank all the guides who were marvelous.

    Malcolm Clapp

  • Curved Ridge, September'16

    I hope this e-mail finds you well. Just a quick note to say how much Johnston and I enjoyed Sunday's scramble up Curved Ridge on Buachaille Etive Mor. It was terrific fun, and as expected Al was an exceptional guide up the route; great company, and a peerless level of knowledge on all mountain matters. He also managed to arrange some brilliantly clear conditions for us! I also enjoyed meeting Mick who came along with us and moved in a suitably ninja-esque fashion up the mountain.

    Will Hamilton

  • Skye Munros, September'16

    Would just like this opportunity to say a massive thank you for my trip with Scott and Steven on the Skye Munro trip, can't praise these guys enough for there safe and professional guiding skills the past few days. The weather was anything but kind to us throughout but there enthusiasm and humorous banter was always there to keep everyone's spirits high!

    Stuart Lovie

  • Aonach Eagach, July'16

    Just to thank you for putting together a great day and a great team. Can't praise Alan highly enough, a super guy and great leader, always encouraging you on the tricky bits. His blog photos very similar to mine - three happy chaps. So I can now tick off one of my "to do" things and still high on the buzz from my achievement.

    William Watson

  • Aonach Eagach and Curved Ridge, June'16

    Just wanted to say thank you for a fantastic weekend. I absolutely loved it and Al was brilliant. I am still buzzing.

    Diane Munro

  • Lochaber 4000ers, June'16

    David and I had a cracking day out on CMD/Ben Nevis. Martin and Colin were, as well as being very good company, terrific guides over the route, dispensing lots of knowledge and guidance. Scrambling across the arete was a huge amount of fun. I'm already looking forward to the Curved Ridge scramble in September.

    Will Hamilton

  • Forcan Ridge and South Glen Shiel Ridge, June'16

    I absolutely loved every minute of it. The first day we were climbing The Saddle and Sgurr na Sgine and because there was going to be a scrambly bit I was a bit apprehensive before the trip. I thought it wise to book with Steve Fallon Mountain Guides, and boy am I glad I did. I was having such a great time, I was having a ball... sorry fellow walkers ! All in all I would rate the trip 10/10..this is my 3rd trip with them and I already have booked another few trips with them so really looking forward to them.

    Julie Fairweather

  • Bespoke day on CMD arete, May'16

    Emma is a knowledgable and capable guide and it's obvious she loves the mountains of Scotland. Being from Louisiana which has a topography like Holland, ie flat, I had no knowledge of mountaineering and Emma showed me lots of tips on the trip. I'm looking forward to coming back perhaps this fall or early next Spring. A wonderful experience!

    Gary Hart

  • Aonach Eagach, May'16

    Everything about this was brilliant. Well organised, friendly and patient guides. Me and my wife had such a brilliant time we can't wait to get back to Scotland to do something similar.

    Richard Geach

  • Bespoke day on Ben Cruachan, Apr'16

    Thank you for the remarkable adventure you took us on - my family and I consider it the highlight of our two week UK visit - a wonderful introduction to the Munros and the Scottish countryside.
    p.s. I considered sending back the buff my husband accidentally nicked, but you said I could keep it. I'm enjoying wearing it - a delightful souvenir. Thanks !

    Michelle Gibson

  • Bespoke days in the Cuillin, Apr'16

    We can't speak highly enough of David's professionalism and patience. We had a thoroughly enjoyable 5 days and were very fortunate that the weather allowed us to bag 5 Munros.

    Marcus Mahon

  • East Glen Etive, Mar'16

    A brilliant day! Sunshine, snow, cloud inversions and great company! A good opportunity to get more experience using crampons and ice axe under the watchful eye of John Walker.

    Debbie Matthews

  • Kintail Bookends, Mar'16

    Fantastic day out. I'm not sure either of these Munros were mountains I would have tackled by myself in winter, so achieving them both, in pretty poor weather, and learning some valuable winter skills along the way was a bonus. It gave me the confidence to push my boundaries a bit over the next few days also. Johnny is a great guide and great company too!

    Kaye Cantlay

  • Bridge of Orchy Munros, Feb'16

    Top notch. A fine leader both in terms of technical stuff, group management & communication. Difficult to imagine a better way to start the 1/2 term holiday! Thank you so much.

    Judith Smith

  • Winter Skills in Cairngorms, Jan'16

    The trip was brilliant, I had a great weekend. The instructor and the group were perfect will definitely be signing up for another course again!

    Leona Cunningham

  • Lawers Munros, Dec'15

    Excellent knowledge of area from guide, good laugh and good decisions made on route choice when the weather looked like putting a stop to any hiking. Will be booking another trip soon.

    Blair Hamilton

  • Navigation, Nov'15

    FANTASTIC !!! Really enjoyed the day, left feeling pretty confident that I would now be able to navigate my way up and down a hill. All expections met :-)

    Louise Murray

  • Torridon's Giants, Oct'15

    I had the time of my life, a fantastic experience walking / scrambling on top of the world with the expert guiding of John and Ian. This was my first time walking with Steve Fallon but it will not be my last time. My rating would be ten out of ten.

    Hanne Anton

  • Skye's Cuillin Munros, Sep'15

    Brilliant trip, from our first communication with Steven to our farewell to our guides with beer/coffee at the Sligahan the whole experience was first class. Can't thank our guides Andy and Guy enough for keeping us safe in mixed weather. New friends made and great company. I would have no hesitation to recommend Steven Fallon for what was a trip of a lifetime

  • Ben Nevis via Ledge Route and the CMD arete, Aug'15

    Had a great day on Ben Nevis and Carn Mor Dearg arete. It was for me the best way to do Ben Nevis. Martin was very excellent! Though concentration needed a lot, we still had smiles and laughs on the way.

    Linda Seggie

  • Glencoe Scrambles, July'15

    Just a quick mail to say thanks again for a fantastic day out yesterday. It was great having both you and John to guide us, and I felt very confident with how you both worked and instructed us. So I shall keep an eye open for more of your days out, and look forward to seeing you again !

    Phil Thomas

  • Forcan Ridge, June'15

    I just wanted to contact you to let you know that we had a great day yesterday on the Forcan Ridge. Richard and John were super guides - very easy to talk with, gave clear and simple instructions and really boosted our confidence. They were patient and encouraging at every section. We couldn't have asked for more.

    Susan Moffat

  • Bidean nam Bian, May'15

    Just a note to say thanks for organising a cracking day on Monday. John was great, really enjoyed the snow & the scrambling ,the weather was calm & clear ! Superb day all round. Looking forward to the next trip .....

    Gill Sharples

  • Aonach Eagach, May'15

    Myself and and the rest of the group had a really great day on the Aonach Eagach on Saturday. A big thank you to Al, Martin, Dave and yourself.

    Jonathan Pleasance

  • Knoydart, Apr'15

    Thanks for the Knoydart weekend. 2 good days of hills. Kenny enjoyed it too. A good bunch of people and 2 very good guides.

    Allan Dundas

  • Navigation for Hill Runners, Mar'15

    Thanks so much again for such a fantastic weekend. One of the best for a long time. Looking forward to getting the slides, maybe see you at Birnam if you are running :) Many thanks

    Ian Marshall

  • Bridge of Orchy Hills, Feb'15

    Two perfect hill days. Everything was just right - perfect timing for the season without coming down with head torches on, the walking pace was just right for me, the routes were interesting and different on the two days. I've learned alot about walking on snow with and without crampons. Good company and great fun.

    Fiona Strachan

  • Winter skills, Jan'15

    As a 3-season hiker, the event was a real eye-opener into the step-up required for winter hiking in Scotland/Cairngorms. The poor weather (high wind, snow, & rain) made the terrain & new use of equipment all the more challenging. The event was great fun & I learnt a lot in the two days, including my current limitations & what I now need to learn & practice to become reasonably competent & safe.

    Mark Bateman

  • Strathfarrar Munros, Nov'14

    A super day, wonderful area and stunning views that were all the more appreciated following on from such a wet drive up on Friday. It was the first time we had met Richard and, like all your guides we have walked with, we found him very good company. Thank you for the great photos on Flickr and for the write up on the blog.

    Catherine and Paul Smith

  • Maoile Lunndaidh, Nov'14

    An exceptionally scenic route to a very remote hill. En-route there were sufficient stops which allowed us all to enjoy this most beautiful and remote location which, I'm sure, only a few walkers would be familiar with. Great day. Many thanks for the pick-up from Aviemore

    Tricia Tullan

  • Kintail's Brothers and Cluanie Munros, Oct'14

    The trip was superb. It was a great choice of hills, good leadership and a friendly group of people. Even the wind and low cloud on the second day didn't spoil the enjoyment

    Steve Owen

  • Torridon Giants, Sep'14

    Excellent trip had a great time. Thank you very much to yourself and John for guiding us safely over the magnificent Torridon giants.

    Gordon Robertson

  • Monar Munros, Aug'14

    It was a first class hillwalking day from every point of view. Well organised, well lead & as the weather was perfect we were able to enjoy extensive views & rise to the challenge of the 3 munros in the one day. The leader was very helpful, great company as were the others in the group.

    Mhairi Galbraith

  • Bidean nam Bian, Aug'14

    It was an superb trip, one of the best of my hillwalking so far. It was great to take the time to enjoy the scenery. thanks, Steven, to let us do that.

    Sylvie Davies

  • Aonach Eagach, Aug'14

    I have been on two other guided trips in the area before (Ben Nevis via Carn mor Dearg and The Ring of Steall) and I can without doubt say that the Aonach Eagach trip rated higher than the two previous ones. This was of course because of the extent of the scrambling, but more to the point was the quality and personality of the guides. Al and Martin were top notch guides and as well as being technically competent in every respect were sociable and informative during the whole of the walk. I would heartily recommend you to anyone seeking guided walks in the Highlands and Islands.

    Frank Walton

  • Ben Alder, Aug'14

    A great weekend expedition in very windy, wild conditions in which myself and my friend Joyce Wilson were very pleased at our achievement in completing all 6 Munros on the Saturday because of the extreme conditions forecasted for the Sunday. Top trip/event. It was nice to know we can handle such conditions.
