"Thanks Iain for a fabulous weekend. My sons Jamie , Peter and I am amazed at what we learned in two days. The course was way beyond our expectations and we are definitely more confident now to attempt hill walks knowing where we are and how to get to where we want in safety. Thanks also for all the local history and nature info. we gleaned on our walks. Also thanks again Ian for rescuing Peters Boot from the car park after we drove off and left it!!"

Gary Taylor

"Just want to say that if you are thinking of doing the Cuillin you should definitely consider KMS. Iain is a fantastic guy, his knowledge of the Cuillin is amazing and he provided me and the rest of the party with a fabulous week in Skye including the 4 days on the Cuillin. I'd also just like to add he makes a bloody mean chilli too. (Skye Sept 12)"

Martin Ridgeway

"I went along on this trip too, safe to say it was a spectacular week. We were blessed with some really good weather later on in the days which resulted in some impressive views that we were guided to by Iain's thorough knowledge of the ridge. The layout of the week, staying in a cottage, made the fact that you didn't know each other much more relaxed, the evenings spent in the pub helped as well. I would definitely recommend this week to everyone! (Skye Sept 12) "

Zoe Thrower

"I was on this trip and have got to say that the views from Sgurr Alasdair were amazing! This is a well managed week and I would highly recommend it. Iain is very experienced which helped us keep safe but still pack in as much as possible. Both the younger and older members of the group were up to the challenge and got on great. The cottage also created a relaxed place to enjoy some cracking food! Well worth the money! (Skye Sept 12)"

Carl Killian

"Iain, I'd like to take this opportunity to thank you for an amazing and challenging day. I never imagined that I'd be climbing such a difficult route after just a few hours, but thanks to your knowledge and experience I felt completely safe and confident. You even managed to arrange perfect weather! (Lead Climbing course) "

John Renshaw

"We had a great time thanks and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to anybody else. I enjoyed it so much I've investigated doing the activity down here in Portsmouth! Everything is great - looking forward to the spring and Level 2 - cheers Iain! (Caving trip)"

It was such an AMAZING experience we had with you on Sunday. Lauren & I were truly delighted with our choice of tours. You and your concern for our safety and fun made it simply wonderful. I certainly appreciated the fact that you noticed how tired I was becoming and allowed me to slow up and make the "safe" choices without making me feel like a complete chicken!! You are certain to see Lauren back there this summer as she has been talking about it ever since! If you are considering learning to Ghyll Scramble/Canyoning...I truly & sincerely recommend Kendal Mountaineering to everyone! And don't worry...Iain will be sure you have a wonderful time while also ensuring your total safety!!! I am 45 and not in that great of shape but Iain made me feel comfortable and confident in my abilities. I did things I never thought I could do and felt like a true champion thanks to his skillful leadership! Take a tip from me....this is an adventure of a lifetime and Iain is the ONLY one you should consider!Thanks again for everything. You certainly made my final day in the UK one I will NEVER forget!"
