A belated review from July 2019... From the outset, Tim promptly dealt with the booking and our requirements, carefully checking our abilities and what we wanted from the day. Bang-on time at the pick-up, then onto the start at the Base Station. Quite simply, he provided what we had asked for - a good walk in the Cairngorms, off the beaten track in places, quietly informative throughout. He is happy to share his knowledge without it coming across as a lecture and maintains a flexible approach to the route throughout. Tim is actually unobtrusive as a guide; he allows you the time & space to appreciate what is around you; walks with you rather than leads, which resulted in a very enjoyable, relaxing (and tiring!) day. Highly recommended.

I spent a wonderful day with Tim and Moray in the Caringorms. Tim is highly knowledgeable and customized the route to my abilities. Being a flatlander I wasn't expecting to be able to accomplish much but to my absolute astonishment I made it to the top of Meall a'Bhuachaille (with plenty of stops to catch my breath). Tim provided a map of our route along with pictures that he took after our hike. I highly recommend Tim if you want to hike the Cairngorms. And make sure to ask for Moray to join you!

I cannot speak highly enough of Tim. He arranged a bespoke day tour to accommodate our varied group and was friendly, flexible and very knowledgeable. He changed the route to allow for changes in weather and made sure that everyone was comfortable and able at all times. I urge anyone looking for a day tour or longer to contact him before looking anywhere else. A fantastic day which was the highlight of our trip. Thank you, Tim!

We can't say enough good things about Tim! He planned the perfect hike for our family and we had an amazing day. He is very knowledgeable and it was wonderful to enjoy the beauty of the Cairngorms without worrying about getting lost. If we are ever up that way again, we would absolutely book with Tim again for another adventure.

I booked a trip with Tim from Out in the Hills knowing I wanted to experience some off-the-beaten-path hiking in Scotland. His knowledge of the Cairngorms, clear bent towards self-selected challenge and safe navigation, and general joy for the wilds of Scotland combined to make this an exceptional day. Every step of the way, Tim honored my initial request, knew that I wasn't there to bag a Munro (though we happily did two) and shared his local knowledge warmly and willingly. I got the sense that Tim could take any hiker or group of explorers and create a safe, positive experience to meet their needs. I have every intention of heading back to Scotland and when I do will be sure to call Tim -- we have a few more peaks to climb!
