‘Had a fantastic day yesterday on Suilven in lovely weather. A big thank you must go to John King who was a perfect walking companion. Owing to my limitations it took us quite a lot longer than planned, but he never once complained or tried to push things above a sensible pace (for me).’

‘I spent two long and most enjoyable days walking in the Torridon mountains with John who was an excellent guide and one of the best I’ve walked with. He has an encyclopedic knowledge of the mountains – which are the peaks around you as you walk, what routes are best. what challenges each presents – and also of the rocks and the flora.
John is very easy to walk with, having an awareness of the best pace for his group, keeping the pace moving while also allowing for stops to enjoy the magnificence of the scenery around. And his encouragement and confidence got me over those challenges of which mountains in Torridon have plenty! He has lots of interesting conversation but also with an ability to be quiet and let the hills speak for themselves. I’m planning my next trip already!’

I had a brilliant day – covered the basics of navigation brilliantly, and learnt some useful skills! The day was great and you were a brilliant teacher/guide. I will definitely looking at doing some of your others courses!

In September I booked a trip with John to climb Foinaven in the Far North, as I had tried to climb it a few years ago and failed, I decided with the help of John I would stand a better chance of reaching the summit and we not only reached the top but we managed a traverse of the whole ridge. John is a fantastic guide and was able to walk at a comfortable pace that suited me meaning we could complete the whole day without too many rest stops. John has so much knowledge on the mountains of Scotland, the best routes and other ways to tackle them, added to this is knowledge of the Geology and the plants it makes the day fun and interesting. If you want a guide for day trips or big adventures in Scotland then look no further than John. I will definitely be using John as guide on future trips.
