Brilliant climb!
Jul 2021 • Couples
Had a fantastic time climbing Ben Nevis with Hannah! She was incredibly supportive and helpful… her expertise and enthusiasm definitely got us through! She was also really great finding our dog shade and water sources along the way. Communication with Scott was also brilliant throughout- couldn’t fault the service :)

I came on a guided tour with my husband guided by Nathan.
Having autism and dyspraxia makes me extremely wobbly on my feet, therefore I need some reassurance, encouraging, and support to carry out my dreams.
Nathan was absolutely amazing and made me feel at ease as soon as we got there. His encouragement and help on the walk was more than I could have asked for. There were points on the walk, where I found myself thinking is this too hard? Should I give up? But with Nathan this was impossible, he helped me find the easier route to walk out on the rocks and also held my hand going though the snow.
My husband was so happy to see me achieve my goal, this was all made possible with Nathan's help. I hope you can pass this on to Nathan. He is a massive asset to you.

The Ben for a family with a party member who’s afraid of heights!
Jun 2021 • Couples
It’s a strenuous and long climb but well worth it, being on the summit instilled such a sense of achievement and pride, especially as one of the party (me) is afraid of heights. Our guide Andrew was patient, highly capable, very knowledgable and informative and great company, couldn’t recommend more highly.

We had a great experience through Kirkhope mountaineering. Our private guide James was extremely friendly and knowledgeable. We really enjoyed our hike with him. Scott was very friend and responsive. We would highly recommend using Kirkhope mountaineering if you ever want to climb Ben Nevis!

Cuillin Ridge Traverse
May 2021 • Couples
After an excellent day out last year with Kirkhope Mountaineering on Tower Ridge we booked again for a traverse of Cuillin Ridge. Scott was great in keeping in touch with us regarding questionable weather forecast up until the day we left for Skye. In amazing weather we did day 1 of the traverse. Scott took time to explain about rope techniques, geographical and geological features. We went at a pace that was good for me (the slowest and most inexperienced team member). Scott clearly assessed my ability and when necessary we roped up, enabling us to walk freely on parts of the ridge it was safe to do so. After a cold night up there we completed the ridge on the second day. Weather deteriorated but Scott made decisions about going around some more difficult bits due to slippy rock (and my gradually reducing pace), which still enabled us to complete the whole ridge plus all 11 Munros. I would recommend anyone wanting to complete the traverse to book Kirkhope Mountain Guides for a safe and fun two day expedition and not to waste time shopping around. I can’t imagine any guiding company would provide a better service.

Excellent Experience for an Amateur Climber in Winter Conditions !
Nov 2020
My guided climb to the top of Ben Nevis was an excellent experience from my initial inquiry until the climb was complete. I would absolutely recommend Kirkhope Mountaineering if you wish to climb with a guide, and I would definitely recommend a guide in winter conditions as I encountered on my climb last week. Despite what you may read climbing Ben Nevis in Winter and low visibility is dangerous and a guide is a must if you are an amateur climbing such as myself. My guide Ben was very easy to talk to for the whole climb and we had many interesting conversations and laughs. We made a fast ascent and descent and completed the climb in about 6 hours, but that was not rushed. We set a good pace and stuck with it. Due to the blizzard conditions and sub zero temperatures at the summit we didn't stick around long !
