We can’t recommend Max enough. He made climbing Ben Nevis as a family such an enjoyable experience. With two children, aged 14 and 7, I wanted a guide for peace of mind and I’m so glad we used this company. From the first email, Max...More

Spent an enjoyable day on Ben Nevis with Max. He made sure we were well prepared before setting off. Max was a pleasant walking companion and I enjoyed the bits n bobs of local history he was able to share as we walked.

Could not recommend Max highly enough. He was very knowledgable about the mountain and made us feel very safe and informed. He was also lovely to talk to and very chatty which is so important when you are hiking with someone for an entire day!...More

Max was awesome! I had a great time hiking Ben Nevis. It is definitely worth having a guide and Max was top notch. He had great advice before and during my climb.

This was my second guided scramble with Max. I enjoyed the Aonach Eagach with him so much last year that I asked him for a recommendation for a similar day this year. The choice was Curved Ridge on Etive Mor - and it didn't disappoint!...More

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.
