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

It's half past midnight, we are wandering the slopes of a lonely Donegal mountain in total darkness and fog, looking for the tiniest features and kinks in the contour lines of our OSI map... welcome to ML1 training with Iain and Unique Ascents! It's a reflection of Iain's skills as a trainer and his infectous enthusiasm for all things outdoor,... More

As I pedalled along Donegal's Wild Atlantic Way over the hills from Glencolmcille to an Port on the Sunday morning before Easter, the sea stacks in the bay below seemed small. But they were faraway like my mind which replayed Iain's words to me the previous night, "Are you coming out to play tomorrow?" The glint in his eye and... More

I thoroughly enjoyed my first rock-climbing session on Thursday morning on Cruit Island. Must admit that I'd had mixed feelings about giving it a go but decided to go along anyway. I knew that everything was going to be 100% safe under the watchful eye of Iain Miller and Aidan McGinley. Will definitely return to give it another go. Great... More
