A very enjoyable trip to Skye was had(even though the weather did not behave). Our guide constantly kept an eye on the weather reports and discussed alternatives to make sure our safety came first. We had a great experience along the ridge, between walking, scrambling and climbing. I'd recommend The Highland Mountain Company and would definately use them again.

Our guide David was great. We didn't have the best of weather and he still made the experience very memorable

On Saturday 19th September, blessed with beautiful weather, it was my honor to climb Ben Nevis 3 times in one day. Yes, you read that right and yes it was a crazy idea. But I did it and I couldn't and wouldn't have wanted to do it without this amazing company. From the first contact to our last goodbye, everything was amazing. Even though my last descent was sideways (due to a failing knee) and in the dark, my amazing guide Alistair, kept me smiling. Due to COVID restriction changes my national 3 peaks challenged was canceled, with less than 2 weeks to go. David at HQ was so fast quick to ease my panic and work out the best way around it. I am forever grateful and raised a great amount of money for the Samaritans too. I cannot recommend this company enough! Thank you so so much.

I would highly recommend this company , mark our guid was very friendly and his experience and knowledge of Ben Nevis was just perfect for a beginner . I was hiking with my teenage daughter who greatly enjoyed her time on Ben Nevis . Upon returning to school her teacher asked if any one had done something they were proud of during the prolonged time off they had , my daughter said she was proud of climbing Ben Nevis . I would choose this company again in the future we were so happy with our whole experience .

Our guide Hannah from the Highland Mountain Company took us up Ben Nevis. As a former geography teacher and expert guide She was able to point out all the local mountain and glacier features, the flora and fauna. It was a great experience for my son William and I. We were safe at all times. I Could not recommend her highly enough - amazing day out.
