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...

I discovered Unique Ascent online a few weeks before a trip to Donegal. I emailed Iain to book a days adventure for myself and my boyfriend and told him we'd love to climb a sea stack and in general have an exciting day out in Donegal. Iain was great for getting back to me but still showing up to meet... More

We try to rock climb when we travel and we always look for a local guide to show us the best. Iain Miller exceeded our expectations. He helped us pick routes that would suit our 11 year old twins while keeping it interesting for the adults. He was thoughtful and encouraging. He challenged us all, helped us learn new things...

Without question, this was a wonderful day. My guide was extremely knowledgeable, safety conscious, and passionate about his craft. It was my first time rock climbing and it was great fun and was exciting, but within my comfort zone.

I was lucky enough to get to go out climbing with Iain and Louise from Unique Ascent a couple of days ago, I'd heard lots of praise for him from various rock climbing instructors so I was really looking forward to meeting him in person! I had rarely ever climbed outdoors so it was a great experience that I'll never... More

Me an my son had the pleasure of spending some time with Iain over Easter. We thoroughly enjoyed the various climbs suggested and as we were both beginners he talked us through the various stages and made us feel at ease. At no stage did we feel we were left adrift or unsure about what to do next. Iain, with... More
