  • Lochaber 4000s, Aug'19

    Many thanks for a superb couple of days and great company. Got pushed to the limit and it was well worth it. Special thanks to Christine and Kevin - really appreciate the expertise and effort. I'm now back in a Derby Costa have a well earned coffee and cake (and not sharing it - Dave !).

    I often gauge a day on the amount of pictures taken. Steven has 47 on Flickr and many more have been posted here [on Whatsapp]. To me that sums it up, because, despite the weather, Andrew and I had a great safe time. Enjoyed the banter and looking forward to the next 3 'big' day we have booked.

    Andrew and Joan Cordier

    It was my first time participating in a guided event. I really appreciate the great company and expert advice. I will definitely do it again.

  • Fisherfield, Jul'19

    Just wanted to say that the Fisherfields trek was a fantastic (though harder than I expected) experience. Above all, I thought Alastair's leadership was outstanding - his level of competence is amongst the highest I have come across which in turn inspired huge confidence in him. Absolutely top notch.

  • Above the Black Mount, Mar'19

    Just wanted to drop you a note to say I thought Richard did a great job at the weekend. He spent time at the start discussing the conditions and was really informative throughout. He's got a good manner and even with the blizzard, we all felt in safe hands.

    Best guided walk I've been on!

  • Winter Skills in Cairngorms, Jan'19

    Just wanted to drop you a line to say GREAT COURSE! We had two fantastic days (the range of weather was extraordinary - the first day we had 50 mile views from the top; on the second day the conditions were arctic) in the hands of the very accomplished, very knowledgeable and thoroughly likeable and pleasant trainer, Johnnie Walker. Everything was extremely well explained with lots of useful snippets on offer throughout the two days: he packed so much in. He is simply a top notch trainer.

    I will definitely signing up for more.

  • Deepest Affric, Aug'18

    Just wanted to say a big thank you to you for arranging deepest Glen affric trip 20-22 august. I joined John and others on day 2 to do three munros back of hostel. To have completed these long wished for munros made me so happy and to do so with such good company a real pleasure - weather might have been better but could have been worse ! Thanks again

  • 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.

  • Knoydart, Jul'18

    I wanted to let you know John and Al were fantastic guides - calm, cheerful, relaxed, judging it just right. They held an impromptu meeting to ensure we were up for walking in heavy rain and wind, and then took 2 of the group up the Corbett today, again in rain. Every member of the group trusted them implicitly - they grouped us well, but also respected that there were some very experienced hill walkers in the group.

    You do manage to bring together great groups of people - I really enjoyed meeting this group - all singles with spouses or partners who don't want to do Munros!! We could indulge all things Munros without being looked at as if we are mad. Although as Brian did say this morning at the cafe waiting for the ferry back to Mallaig, 'it is a bloody stupid hobby'!!

    My best wishes and thank you for arranging everything
