An unforgettable experience! Was taken to the most beautiful remote locations, local knowledge was much appreciated! Iain went out of his way to tailor the experience to our abilities...and the weather! Even in November managed two full days of climbing, hiking and soaking up some incredible scenery with some great photos to take home - but still don't quite do... More

This is well worth the trip up to this spectacular part of Ireland. You will see things that will take your breath away.....Iain is great to work with. Makes sure you are getting the most out of your climb. I was on my own and that was not a problem. Had a fantastic day! I cannot wait to go back!... More

I am extremely grateful to Iain for his time and patience in teaching me, a complete rookie, basic mountain skills that he could do blindfolded. He has a world of knowledge and isn't afraid to say what he thinks which is very refreshing! A very positive man with emphasis always on safety but never forgetting the enjoyment factor! Definitely would... More

I spent months preparing for this portion of my trip. Nothing could prepare me for what I experienced. This was indeed a life changing, and very emotional event for me. I could not be more grateful to Iain for his knowledge, experience, and genuine kindness. I was making this climb to honor my father. Iain made sure to not disappoint.... More

I write few reviews for Trip Advisor, but when I do, you can bet there is a good reason. I am a professional travel photographer and I hired Unique Ascent to lead me on a 4 day photo journey through Donegal, Ireland. What I got was an extraordinary education in the geology, flora, fauna, and humor of Northwest Ireland. Iain... More

Loved the experience in there. He took me to a couple of places including Gola island which was great. He is really gentle, his family as well. Recommend it.

This made the drive to the remote northwestern parts of the Republic of Ireland totally worth it!! Our guide Iain was a pleasure to meet. He was as entertaining as he was experienced and professional. Whether you climb or not, this is a MUST DO if you are in Ireland. The island offers so many Breathtaking vistas but if you... More

Man…when the swells are crashing and foaming against the rocks below, you’re hanging off a slippery crux 65 feet in the air, on a sea-buried cliff a quarter-mile off a remote coastline, and dark clouds are looming and rain starts splattering off your hands and helmet, all you can think is, How the heck did I get here?! But then... More

My wife and I booked Unique Ascent for two days of guided climbing in June 2016, and we highly recommend the experience to others. Prior to making the trip from the U.S. to Ireland, I worked directly with Iain Miller, company director and mountain instructor, to plan and prepare, and despite the time difference, Iain was always punctual in his...

Iain took me and a group of friends out for two amazing days in Donegal that we simply could not have come close to experiencing on our own. Iain's knowledge of the landscape and local history of Donegal allow him to take you to places that are unlike any other on earth and understand some of the reasons they are... More
