Well organised, felt very confident with the guides who took us. They were experienced and knew a lot about the place geographically which was really nice...the views from the top were incredible!

First and foremost I had a fantastic trip which was organised very well, the Hotel Onich was in a beautiful location and was extremely comfortable complete with a drying room for kit. The staff were very friendly and polite and the food was spot on, just what you needed after a long day on the mountains :)

Our Guide Mark on the first day was extremely knowledgeable and a pleasure to be with, we walked a very nice ridge line over Stob Coire nan Lochan in some very snowy conditions, learnt to break trail, crampon and axe use and a great deal about weather and snow conditions. In the evening we learnt about avalanche risks and factors affecting snow and avalanche conditions.

For the second and third day I was fortunate to be one on one guided by John Walker, on the second day we set off up Ben Nevis consolidating crampon and ice axe use and discussing weather and snow conditions and navigation. We were extremely fortunate to be met with views from the summit ! it got clearer the longer we were up there and got some spectacular photos, the descent really consolidated working with the axe and keeping safe and secure. Was a brilliant day and John was extremely good company, I learnt a great deal and was impressed with his knowledge of been able to name every summit he could see ! Oh and I also learnt the importance of centrifugal force with restoring blood flow to hands haha,

The third day was surprisingly enough fantastic again ! We achieved the summits of 2 Munros as well as practising the various ways to self arrest with the axe, temperature was quite pleasant ! we were even able to stop for a brew on the summit of Stob Coire Altruim (That may possibly be incorrect !) before progressing onto Sto na Doire (again that one also may be incorrect, serves me right for not writing this as it was all fresh in my head !) A very pleasant experience and while walking with John it was just like been out with an extremely knowledgeable friend for a good day on the mountains learning a lot of new things,

All in all a brilliant trip and thank you very much to Adventure Peaks and to John and Mark for having me.
