I attended the navigational course last Sunday along with two of my friends and Cathal (the poor guy who got stuck with us women). The course was at the Cairngorms and instructed by Andreas. We had a great day the sun shone and we learnt the basics of map reading, using a compass and pacing. I would thoroughly recommend this... More

Just back from doing the 1 day navigation course in the Cairngorms – although I think our instructor referred to it as micro-navigation. We were a small group - there were 4 of us in the group plus our instructor Andreas from Unexplored Scotland. I had no knowledge of how to use a compass, but by the end of the... More

Just completed a one day navigation course up at Cairngorm with Andreas as our instructor. Myself and three ladies from Craigellachie took part in this one day introduction to navigation which included self pacing / timing techniques for determining walking distance, basic map reading, use of compass and other relevant skills required for navigation and hillwalking. Thoroughly enjoyed the course... More

Thanks for a brilliant 2 day course in Aviemore. We learnt so much and gained confidence in ice axe arrests, crampons, walking in snow, navigation, avalanche risks,not to mention learning about the nature and wildlife of the mountain. All this was with our brilliant instructor Tim, who made it fun and a very positive experience. We always seemed to have... More

Four ladies, looking for a challenge, asked Andreas to guide them up Ben Nevis, the non tourist way. We had a fantastic trip. He took us to the opposite side of the mountain to the usual route and we climbed up from the North Face car park via Corrie Liese. We met only four people on our way up, and... More

So many places to visit in Scotland you could spend a lifetime here and not see half of it. I am English and came for a weeks holiday in 2007 and 'forgot' to go home. Always think The Highlands are rather like country life was in England 50 years ago. I always think the scenery in Cornwall is wonderful but... More

Four of us, experienced summer walkers, came up and spent a weekend doing the winter walking skills course with Andreas. Absolutely fabulous. Andreas has a very practical style, he gets you out on the hills and on the snow very quickly, but all the time you are learning. On the walk in he is doing navigation work, pacing, timing and...

This year in August we went on some exhausting and demanding but seriously interesting and exciting hiking tours on the Isles of Mull and Skye together with Andreas Heinzl. He headed us through the unspoiled countryside of Scotland far away from the usual and crowded tourist tracks. We got used to muddy and wet feet, and after a while it... More

This trip went ahead despite me being the only customer. The sea was calm and the wind was light helping us to make excellent progress on our journey from Elgol to Kyleakin. So much so that we arrived a day earlier than planned and carried on to Plockton for our final night. Excellent scenery and superb views of wildlife including... More
