Really enjoyed my 2 day trek in Cairngorms led by Simon. Couldn’t fault the organisation, the route and the equipment. All superb. I had total faith in Simon to look after our small group. He is very knowledgable and so encouraging. Thank you.

A fantastic trekking experience. Simon is passionate about the Cairn Gorms and it was great that he shared his knowledge with us. Lucy’s yoga sessions were also very therapeutic after a day on the mountains.
