Euan is an excellent leader and seems to have a great gift of knowing the abilities of those he is leading. He definitely creates even more enthusiasm and enjoyment : even when I am going to have a really great day, he makes it even better!

Some of the best days I have had in the winter hills have been those guided by Euan. The climbing is always challenging, for me, but his calm reassurance and expertise always results in an enjoyable and memorable day.I am already looking forward to doing more routes with him next winter!

I was fortunate enough to have Euan as my Guide for my first alpine adventure. Euan’s patience, knowledge and humour made our trip challenging, rewarding, educational and above all fun. I would not hesitate to book him for future outgoings and recommend him highly to anyone who is looking for a guide in the mountains or on the crag.

It was a great experience. It fulfilled all my expectations to have a first approach to winter mountaineering. My guide was great teaching me all the basic stuff related to crampons, ice axe and winter hiking, plus he was a great coach supporting me to make it to the summit.
