Wonderful weekend, observing a Lowland Leader Training Course with Iain Miller. Lots of delightful tracks and trails to explore in and around the Donegal Mountain Lodge. Encouraging, concise and clear instruction to those attending over the two days. Setting them up for the positive path towards the Lowland Leader Award. Looking forward to another visit. DE

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

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
