Had an awesome experience with Neil who led us up the Cobbler last weekend. We went through the eye of the needle to the main summit, then the north summit and then Beinn Narnain adapting the route to suit the conditions. Neil made a scary scramble feel safe and do-able. Great craic with Neil and made 2 new friends. A 5 star service - leadership, enthusiasm, safety, bacon rolls and coffee. Oh and sore feet!read more

Recently had a day out with Neil on a 1:2 basis with my friend, doing Ledge Route onto Ben Nevis, then descent via CMD Arête. I think it tells a story when I’m still grinning more than a week later!! Ledge Route is something I didn’t EVER think I’d attempt, but I loved it! Neil is fantastic at encouraging and making you realise that actually you can do something! An absolutely amazing day, with great company and chat, and many new skills learnt and confidence found. I’ll definitely be back to do something else now that Iv been bitten by the scrambling bug!read more

Today I was guided, supported, entertained and bantered with all the way along the Aonach Eagach ridge by the amazing Neil Kerr. Being in the hands of a qualified mountain instructor made me feel so safe and at ease and it definitely spurred me to take on more challenging scrambles and climbs knowing he would talk me through every aspect of it along the way. Munroing has always been a solo act for me (mostly) but reaching my half way point, as I did today, I definitely had the right person with me when it counted. Neil is brilliant, the ridge is brilliant, the support and banter is brilliant. I genuinely could not talk highly enough about my day - I am literally beaming from ear to ear! I am already planning my next escapade! P.S. there were only 2 of us (a lovely chap called Paul) with Neil and I personally really liked the time and attention he could show each of us to develop our skills in such a small group. He also has the strongest coffee in the world! 😂👍read more
