'Keith was an excellent guide and outstanding instructor for our winter skills day in the snow packed hills above Aviemore he was so completely professional in every way and he educated informed and entertained us for the whole trip.' Winter Skills Instruction client March 2016

'I learned a great deal of skills which has given me the confidence to go hiking in the mountains on my own or with a group of friends. I couldn't recommend Keith enough' Private Winter Guiding client March 2016

'Keith was a leader who inspired confidence and kept us safe throughout the day. Finishing back in Aviemore for a debrief with cake rounded off am awesome day. I'd definitely recommend using McDougall Mountaineering if you're wanting to head out to the hills with a guide.' Winter Skills Instruction client February 2016

'I asked Keith to take me out in winter to freshen up some rusty skills and was treated to an awesome day. Keith sensed that I wanted a blend of instruction and an enjoyable day on the hills getting the balance spot on. It was a testing day was just the sort of stretch that I wanted and a day to remember. I couldn't recommend him highly enough.' Private Guided Winter Hiking February 2016

'A day learning winter skills has opened up a whole new world for me. It helped me learn so much in just one day to give me the confidence to get on my crampons and venture out, but also want to learn more. Keith's clear passion, enthusiasm and knowledge for his craft is infectious.' Winter Skills Instruction client February 2016

'Having not been out hill walking for a few years it was great to get out there again with an experienced guide. Our group had various fitness levels but Keith dealt with it brilliantly!' Guided Hiking client October 2016

'Fantastic day out with Keith on Lochnagar. We did a route I would never have had the confidence to do by myself having never done much scrambling - but Keith gave us this skills needed, and the sense of achievement in reaching the top was incredible!' Guided Hiking client September 2015

I felt safe throughout the experience and was reassured by Keith’s obvious knowledge and understanding of the environment. The day was well organised and I would recommend this experience to individuals, social groups and corporate organisations. Guided Hiking client August 2015
