  • Had a day outdoor rock climbing with Pete yesterday and it was fab! The views were amazing and it was such a great experience for us 4 beginners! Pete on the other hand was exceptional. He took his time and explained it all to us and was nothing but patient! I was absolutely petrified and he was so calming and reassuring throughout! The day would not have been the same without Pete🌟
  • Really enjoyed our first rock climbing session whist holidaying in Fort William . Mark was brilliant , very patient and we all loved his Jimmy Carr laugh.
  • I came here last week with a group who were all really keen to do some rock climbing - I wasn't quite so keen, being scared of heights. Our instructor, Mark, was great - really enthusiastic and positive even when faced with a scaredy cat like myself. I've already recommended this place to friends who climb. Thanks for as pleasant an experience as I could hope for when facing my fears! :)
  • This was a great experience after a day of hiking. My son Adrian and I did the climbing walls. Tom the instructor was great at helping us learn the techniques and safety procedures. Enjoyable time
  • Perfect stop on our way from Fort William to Loch Lomond. Kids and hubbie loved to climb and Anne Rebecca was a great instructor. Restaurant & coffee nice as well.
