    5 star rating Sky In Pin and others. Excellent guides, sympathetic to our advancing years! Great knowledge of the routes, watched our physical condition (very hot weather), and provided great instruction when we climbed and abseiled. Three individual days. Will be back next year for more.

    5 star rating If Carslberg did Winter Mountaineering Courses. Attended the 4 day Winter Mountaineering Course December 2021. Dave Fowler was a great instructor and made the 4 day course not only really enjoyable but I took a lot away from it. He gave me numerous tips and advice for my upcoming Winter ML which was fantastic. Although the snow conditions were far from ideal, Dave and the company went above and beyond, and I left not only with... read more

    5 star rating Fantastic Winter Adventure Ken @ WCMG was a fantastic skilled mountain guide, clearly knowing the mountain well, always offering information and great insights.
    If you are looking for a winter scramble, the ledge route on Ben Nevis is a lot of fun. I’m sure the rest of the courses Ken and the company provides too are just as good.
    I’d highly recommend and will probably be back at some point too!

  • 5 star rating Great day out on Inn Pinn Great day out with Dave on the Inn Pinn, with another summit thrown in too. Good communication and organisation from the start. Dave had an easy going and reassuring manner which made for an enjoyable experience. Would use WCMG again.

    5 star rating Skye's Cuillin Ridge Dave, our guide, was friendly, knowledgeable and encouraging. My wife and I had a fantastic couple of days with him scrambling on Skye’s Cuillin Ridge. It has opened up a whole new set of possibilities for us. We are already planning our next expedition with West Coast Mountain Guides.

  • 5 star rating The Accessible Pinnacle We travelled to Sgorr Dearg as a party of eight which required two guides. Ken Applegate, and Dave (apologies Dave I never did get your 2nd name) were the two assigned to the task. They were informative and reassuring during the first half of the climb and scramble to the summit of the pinnacle. They kept the atmosphere lighthearted whilst making us aware that we were ultimately responsible for our... read more

    5 star rating Ascent of the In Pin Ken and Dave made the inaccessible pinnacle very accessible. Myself and my 7 friends all managed to summit the In Pin and had a great (and slightly terrifying) time doing so.
    I'd highly recommend West Coast Mountain Guides to anyone considering an ascent of the In Pin. They were informative, entertaining and made the whole experience safe and enjoyable.
    For the amount of satisfaction and thrill we received in summiting,...

    5 star rating Cuillin Munro Course Had a cracking week with WCMG , climbing the Cuillin Ridge Munro's.
    From start to finish the organisation was first class , from the booking process to the last day back at the cars.
    The ratio is one guide to three people , to attempt all 12 peaks on the ridge in four days . The guides were reassuring , informative , knowledgeable, friendly and very helpful . This all combined...
