Here at Hunter Mountaineering we have a passion and reputation for excellence in Private Guiding, Instruction, Coaching and Courses. We operate in both summer and winter, with activities ranging from walking up Ben Nevis, to classic rock or ice climbs, mountain navigation and safety. We are based in Fort William but operate all over the Highlands of Scotland. Hunter Mountaineering is run by myself, Max Hunter. I hold the Mountaineering Instructor Certificate (the 'MIC' - the highest professional certification for Mountaineering in Great Britain), and am a member of the Association of Mountaineering Instructors (AMI) and the Mountain Training Association (MTA).

I can’t recommend Max and Hunter Mountaineering highly enough! Prior to our trip to Ben Nevis, Max kept us fully informed of the changing conditions and equipment we would need. Safety is a priority but he also ensures that you have a really enjoyable experience.

Max was very professional, knowledgeable and engaging. The hike up Ben Nevis wouldn't have been as good without his help and encouragement. I would definitely consider hiring him again or recommend him to others. Hike the world.
