Paul is the man! Great guide.



Fantastic experience in glorious weather. Paul did a great job in keeping us all safe while setting us some interesting challenges. Highly recommended!


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!


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!


Spending a day in the hills with Euan is always a pleasure: Summer or Winter he will always ensure that you’re experience of the day will be remembered. His leadership style and skills are excellent and he is always willing to instruct and pass knowledge on no matter what the activity is.
