Decided on a guide for our ascent of Nevis as a precaution more than anything. The Mountain Path is pretty clear for the whole trek, but being October, was concerned about the weather getting a bit dicey towards the top. Booking with The Highland Mountain company was simple with great communication from David. Our guide Sally was excellent. Patient, friendly,... More

The highlight of my holiday to Scotland and probably one of the best things I've ever done. I felt safe the whole time and comfortable with David who is a very capable guide. David offered to take some snaps of me climbing along the way which was very helpful to show to my friends back home who didn't believe I... More

He picked us up from our local Hotel and took us to the base of Ben Nevis and explained the different sections of the walk up and gave us our harnesses and helmets.... More

On what must have been the wettest summer weekend, Dave Buckett guided us up this stunning mountain. He remained cheerful and informative in spite of half of our party deciding to throw in the towel half way up. Dave has an impressive knowlegde of local flora and history. His ability to read the weather conditions and to advise us accordingly... More

A brilliant afternoon with guide Dave climbing in the glen. My two sons of different ability but both regularly climb indoor walks. Dave managed to stretch both of them starting on Upper Pinnacle Crag moving in to Styx and a multi pitch climb the first for both boys. Thanks to Monty the dog who kept me and my father company...

I booked my two sons booked climbing whilst camping at Glen Nevis, they have both climbed on an indoor wall and this was the first outdoor climb. Communication with the team was good and they are friendly. The weather wasn’t great but the guide Graham went ahead and made contingency plans in case the weather went terrible. The boys had...

Just wanted to say a big thank you to Ritch (the guide up Ben Nevis) for a wonderful experience, our son (12 years old), seems to have gathered some big credit amongst his friends. My husbands legs are finally back to normal and what an amazing present I got for my husband and son for fathers day. I have been... More

We had shared in advance that we were seeking a hike where we could experience the beauty of the Glencoe area and David selected a route for us that provided EXACTLY what we were looking for ...and then some! Although the weather conditions were less than ideal (clouds, drizzle, bright cloudiness, heavy rain and moments of sunshine) memories of this... More

Dave was the most fantastic guide and instructor for our three days in the highlands. We booked a three day Winter Skills Course which was great fun from start to finish. My wife (coming from Kenya) had never experienced snow and ice before and Dave hit exactly the right balance, challenging and developing our skills whilst maintaining our enjoyment and... More

A big thank you to Dave (The Highland Mountain Company) for organising such an enjoyable day, Emma & I had a fantastic time climbing Ben Nevis (CMD Arête Route) with Spike our guide. We found your company and Spike to be friendly, professional and knowledgeable, which helped to make the experience very memorable. Climbed - August 2014
