I had a climbing session with Iain yesterday on Cruit island and what a day it was. Not having climbed before i was very happy with Iains "better safe than sorry" attitude as he made sure i was going to be safe before we even went climbing. Throughout the session i was taught how to climb and tie ropes safely,... More

Myself and four friends just completed Mountain Skills 1 & 2 with Iain Millar, of Unique Ascent. We were all at different levels of experience. However, all four of us gained significant knowledge, new skills and all while having lots of fun. Iain is a great coach. My friends & myself had a highly enjoyable learning experience. Thank you Iain.

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

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.
