My wife and I booked a full day walk with Tim, and couldn't have had a better time! He was very organized with booking and gear details, billing, and pick up from our hotel. The walk was about 11 miles, a circuit including Ben Macdui and Cairn Gorm, and was absolutely spectacular (though in cold windy conditions). Tim was happy... More

I booked a short walk in the Cairngorms and enjoyed it very much. It was perfectly organized, before, during and after the tour. Tim answered all questions that I had by mail, even though I booked on very short notice. He picked me up at the train station, led me on a route with fantastic views that I could walk... More

I and two others booked a full day's climb with Out in the Hills, and Tim proved not only and excellent guide, but also a very enjoyable companion for the day. We climbed Ben Macdui and Cairngorm which took us in the region of 7 hours, and whilst that for me proved a rigorous climb, it was entirely doable and... More

Tim was very easy to communicate with during the planning beforehand and once we got there, he suggested making a change based on our abilities and experience. We are very glad that he did. Tim had extensive knowledge of the area and he led us into nooks and to vistas we never would have found in a guide book. He... More

Myself and my 15 year old son had a great day out walking up Ben Macdui and Cairngorm with Tim and Moray. Tim's knowledge of the area meant we got a lot more out of the walk than we would otherwise have if we'd been on our own. A great day out and would thoroughly recommend Tim to anyone.

Booked a full day hike with Tim and Moray (dog), we had a great day, 'bagging' 2 Munros, going off-trail to see a wonderful waterfall and Loch Avon, plus saw reindeer! Tim is a great guide, good judge of ability (which meant our small group did a bit extra - 19kms in total), thoroughly enjoyed it and can totally recommend... More

We booked a half day hike and were not disappointed. The hike was challenging, yet enjoyable. My wife was a bit intimidated by the climb, but Tim expertly and patiently guided us through it. Would definitely consider doing this again.

Tim is fantastic! If I ever get back to Scotland I will absolutely contact him to guide us again. From my initial contact to the post hike photos he sent, he was helpful, kind, incredibly knowledgeable, and gave us an experience we will treasure for years to come. He listened to what we wanted to do (summit a munro), and... More

My husband and I much enjoyed a 4 hour hike with Tim (and dog Moray) yesterday in spite of the limited views once we'd climbed to the top of the peak - 360 degrees of mist/cloud even in mid-June but we can hardly blame Tim for that! He was a great guide and gave us a feel for the area,... More

Just back from a fantastic 3 day wildcamp in the Fisherfield region otherwise known as the great wilderness,taking in some of the most remotest and breathtaking scenery in the highlands (and as a highlander that's saying something) we also bagged another 3 munro's which included a spectacular ridge walk and was just the icing on the cake...
