“Excellent guide!!”
Reviewed April 25, 2014

Andy is one of the best guides I have ever met. He has a wealth of experience and knowledge and such an infectious passion for the hills! Our group was a mixed bag of fitness levels but Andy catered for each one of us and made the walk up Ben Nevis an unforgettable experience. He is very patient and clearly loves what he does and genuinely wants everyone to enjoy their experience to the max. If you're thinking about going up Ben Nevis - choose Up and Doon Guided Walks for an amazing time and a journey you'll never forget!

“Incredible Guide!!”
Reviewed April 16, 2014

If you're going to hike Ben Nevis, definitely go with Up and Doon Guided Walks!!! Andy is easily one of the best guides I've met and is so passionate and knowledgeable about Scotland, the mountains, and hiking. It was such a memorable day with a really fun group and I would happily do it all over again.

“Ben Nevis & Carn Mor Dearg”
Reviewed April 1, 2014

I highly recommend Up & Doon if you're looking to a walk in the Highlands; Andy is a very knowledgeable, enthusiastic and well prepared guide.

In July 2013, Andy and I walked up Ben Nevis followed by a bit of a scrambling traverse of the narrow ridge Carn Mor Dearg. Great weather (for the most part anyway, being Scotland!), beautiful scenery, good conversation - couldn't have asked for a better day to cross a couple more Munroes off the list! Thanks Andy!

I would like to recommend Up and doon guided walks to everyone that like to have an immemorial& great time with a high quality and a good price.

I had a really good experience with Up and Doon. We climbed Ben Nevis the last June :) I was a little scared the days before because I don't have experience and I don't have a good phisical condition but when I started the way was really good. He had done a good job and he was explain in the way really interesting things. I had a day in the montain really lovely and difficult forget this.
Definetly, highly recommend I hope to go this summer with Up and Doon again!

Hi Dimunoz
Thank you so much for your positive feedback:) I am glad your trip up Ben Nevis was such a great experience. The whole concept behind Up and Doon is to make mountains as accessible as possible for everyone not just the super fit so i am glad that you found this to be the case:) Hopefully we will get out for another walk this summer:)
Take care
Andy

“more monroes please!”
Reviewed March 23, 2014

Last September I did the three peak challenge and visited Snodonia, Scafell Pike and Ben Nevis with different tour guides. The biggest highlight for me was definitely the guided tour I took with Andy Davidson. If it wasn't for his well preparation and advice (temperatures can drop quite quickly) I would have been soaked to the bone and freezing cold. I really enjoyed that hike because of the nice atmosphere within the group and I even learned a few words of Doric:)
The view from the Ben is breathtaking I didn’t expect that view after the rainy start. At the end of the hike we all had a well deserved pint.
This incredible experience has made me want to come back and explore more.
I defenately would like to do a hike with Andy to one of the less well known but stunning Monroes.
I can’t wait for another awesome experience! :)
