Having seen some of Unique Ascent's amazing videos on the Irish Times website and YouTube I was hooked, I called Iain and booked in for a month later. Amazing experience, Iain was friendly and welcoming, encouraging too but likes to challenge his visitors to do more than they think they can. The sea stack near Gweedore was fantastic and fun...

Iain is a great conversationalist and we (my dad and I--60 and 30) learned so much about the area from him. The hike was a bit harder than expected and the mountaineering was legit scary but it was all worth it. The climbing was amazing and the views were spectacular. I felt safe with Iain's climbing expertise and would totally... More

I arranged a day of climbing with Iain Miller. Iain is a star and has great knowledge of the cliffs and stacks. Not only is he very professional and competent, he is also one of the most positive people I've met. The day was one of excellent rock (no following polished holds), dramatic views and sheer joy. There are enough... More

My wife and I had a great time with Iain. We are complete novices and he took us to remote and extraordinarily beautiful locations in Donegal to climb up cliffs and sea stacks. While we were with him, he made sure we were safe and really instilled confidence. We are very thankful for his time and expertise. We now have... More

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.
