I’ve been on two guided walks with Garry now and recently done the hill skills course. Garry is very knowledgeable and makes the day out great fun. He manages to make everyone feel included during the walk and caters for all levels. Would highly recommend.

My favourite day out walking, ever! Lochnagar, the first Munro I’ve tackled was a truly great experience made all the more wonderful due to the guidance and knowledge of Garry from Hillgoers.

Spent the day on 26th June Hill Skills Course. Would highly recommend it. Spent the first hour or so in the classroom before heading outdoors for the rest of the day. Garry made everyone at ease very quickly, sharing his knowledge and obvious love of the great outdoors with everyone. We look forward to using our new skills to enhance our future ventures on the hills. Thanks Garry!

Had the most magical expedition to Ben Macdui in the Cairngorms, with Garry, on Sunday. He is a brilliant guide on every level, and an absolute joy to spend a day out in the mountains with. So full of knowledge, not only relating to navigation and hill skills, but also to flora and fauna and geography! Every wee alpine plant on the Cairngorm Plateau arctic tundra was identified, and we managed to see ptarmigan, mountain hares and even a (the) herd of reindeer. Beautiful! We made good time, and so he took us off route after we’d reached the summit of Ben Macdui, to places where perhaps I wouldn’t have ventured without a very good guide whom I trusted entirely. I felt absolutely safe with Garry. His manner is calm, kind, and, rare among guides - he is without ego!! Happy to say that I am tackling Glencoe with Garry next month and I can’t wait. Would highly recommend

Brilliant Guide, gave him an outline of what I’d like to do and within a few days he planned out a whole trip. Full of information as we were climbing and every question was answered. Would have quite literally been lost without him.

A magical day on the plateau and beyond with a fantastic guide - Garry loves the mountains deeply and gently conveys this and his great knowledge of the lie of the land, the flora and fauna. To feel safe and relaxed with him adds to the general awe of trekking in such a place. Highly recommended - a brilliant experience.
