Could not thank Dave enough for his fantastic guiding experience in getting our party up (and down!) Ben Nevis at the end of March in snowy conditions. From the booking process, to being collected on the day and kitted out with the correct equipment, to walking the trail - all was easy and efficient (ok, the walking the trail wasn't that easy, but Dave's patience and support on the climb up and down was fantastic). A great day had, good memories made, and some cracking photos to show for the effort. Would highly recommend.

David is a great guide!

I had one day available to climb Ben Nevis in December. Unfortunately the weather was not helping with rain and very strong wind. David still managed to offer a nice climbing experience on the Ledge route and down through Gully 4.

A safe bet for a nice day in the mountains.

My wife and I went into the store purely to browse however, ended up buying with a return visit a day later. We made purchases on both days! The products are of high quality and the staff so helpful and knowledgeable on their products. There are thousands of items to choose from - anything outdoor - they have it!

Our guide David was immense. He was a great person to have with my partner and I. He is clearly very experienced and knowledgable of the route of Ben Nevis. He showed great patience throughout and was very keen to offer advice at certain parts of the climb. The booking process could not be any easier and the communication and instructions were clear. A truly fantastic experience and a really nice trip. Thank you again David.

Decided on a guide for our ascent of Nevis as a precaution more than anything. The Mountain Path is pretty clear for the whole trek, but being October, was concerned about the weather getting a bit dicey towards the top.
Booking with The Highland Mountain company was simple with great communication from David. Our guide Sally was excellent. Patient, friendly, knowledgeable and encouraging when required. Despite being a long way from the quickest ascent, we never felt rushed or pressured and Sally kindly recommended a number of other walks for us to try on our break. Wouldn't hesitate in using HMC again.
