Hi Nick,

It was a great birthday surprise from my girlfriend to go climbing in these awesome mountains. We had some lucky and amazing experiences that made it unforgettable; like the early vulture sitting, the 'brochenspectre' at the summit, the six fighter jets that zoomed passed as we made our way back to the car, and on the second day the large heard of deer led by their stag high up on the mountainside. Many thanks Nick for making it a great birthday. We hope to be back soon!

Dear Nick,

On behalf of myself and three companions, I should like to thank you for your guidance on our recent three day excursions on to the Cuillin ridge. We were highly impressed with your expertise, patience and good humour (even on two wet days!) and will have no hesitation in recommending your services to others.

With many best wishes for the future,
Martin Hunt

alright nick, how's things? Have fun on sunday? Had a look at your website and thought i would show you what mav and i got upto on sunday. The pic is of the left hand start to goat tack gully which was great fun. We did that after quickly popping up central gulley at about 10 on sunday. Great fun and not sure i would have felt upto it without picking your brains on saturday! Cheers for your help, Matt P.s. sneaked climb magazine into a particulary boring maths lecture this morning and saw you had got a mention for climbing gargoyle wall, nice one!
