Great Ghyll Scrambling day with Iain. Highly Recommended. We were a family with two girls age 8 and 11 and we all loved it. Beautiful scenery, quiet location, fun and informative instructor. Story telling, water fights, pool diving, rock climbing and good kit and boots. Challenging but available for all levels. Thanks Iain. PS Girls loved the ride in the series two land rover.

Great fun was had by all. Ghyll scrambling was the highlight of our trip for the kids (age 9 to 15).

I spent a great day with Iain scrambling/climbing up Pinnacle Ridge on St Sunday Crag. I've had this on my ticklist for a while and it was great to be able to do it safely with Iain leading and also helping me to relearn forgotten techniques and regain confidence on rock as my last such outing had been in 2009. Iain was also great company and we were chatting away like old mates despite having never met before.

My partner and I did the most incredible gorge walking experience. Our instructor Ian went above and beyond to make sure we had the best time. We did the experience solo, which is often not the case with other competitors, so felt the experience was even more special. Ian even took a gopro with him to take pictures/videos of us throughout the experience and sent them to us afterwards (for no additional cost) so we had something to remember. Ian made us feel in extremely safe hands and even provided a hot chocolate at the end to warm us up. We did abseiling, rock climbing, jumping and sliding into waterfalls and pools; Ian made sure we were comfortable to do so throughout. Unlike some other providers, we were given services such as walking boots, the pictures, warm drinks and solo exclusively, which made it so enjoyable. We couldn't recommend him, or the experience, more and would highly suggest going with him.

Great day out kayaking on Derwentwater. It was a cold day and challenging conditions but as novices we picked up lots of tips from Iain. A super way to see wonderful scenery.
