I drove south through Ardara, County Donegal, for my rendezvous with Iain Miller and felt excitement mixed with a little apprehension at the thought of climbing among some of the highest sea cliffs or ‘stacks’ in Europe. Iain got embraced in a massive Teena hug when we met, partly because I was nervous and partly because I felt I knew... More

Came to Ireland to climb on our honeymoon and will certainly never forget the experience we had with Iain. Not only did he show us some of the most amazing scenery you could ever experience, he put us on some amazing rock and sent us pictures documenting our experience. We have climbed many times in the past with guides in... More

Brilliant day out on the amazing coastline that is Barney's Brae - Iain and his team were great hosts and took us out sea kyaking, across a zip line to a granite sea stack which we climbed - great fun!

This was my first experience doing any type of outdoor climbing. I was apprehensive at first but Iain was such a brilliant and knowledgeable guide I had no fears being held on the end of a rope by him or that I wouldn't be able to complete the climb. It was a truly unforgettable experience and I will definitely go... More

We had an unforgettable day out to the most remote part of Ireland. Breathtaking scenery and Iain was a brilliant guide. I didn't do any climbing myself, but my boyfriend did and he loved it. This was without a doubt the best thing I've done in Ireland and I couldn't recommend it highly enough.

My first time visiting Donegal and thanks to Iain it definitely won't be my last. It was a great weekend full of learning, beautiful scenery and plenty of laughs. Iain is a great leader and does everything in his power to ensure you're not only having a great time but also learning so much as you go. I can not... More

ALRIGHT, LET'S DO THIS!!! I'd say this - out of all the days I spent on holiday in IRE - was my favorite. Iain was a great host and a phenomenal guide. He's fantastic at what he does and the love (and madness) he has for climbing is infectious. Whether you're going solo or with a crew, I can't recommend... More

I had a wonderful time with Unique Ascent. The climbing was superb and the scenery was breath-taking. I had the chance to experience parts of Ireland that very few visitors even get to see. I couldn't recommend it highly enough. This is surely one of the best ways to spend your time in Donegal.

Thank you very much Iain for a great weekend in Donegal. Your hospitality, wealth of knowledge and passion for all things hillwalking and rockclimbing is second to none. A thoroughly recommended experience!

Iain is the best no doubt about it and handles himself in an excellent manner. I elected to push the group of 14 hikers and Iain delivered as promised with one of the best mountain walks in NW Ireland--the views were spectacular we all enjoyed the challenge.I must admit, with a group of 14, no matter what you tell everyone--they...
