These from Mountain Aid's clients:

"The course went really well. I found Andy to be a really likeable and patient instructor, and I felt comfortable learning at my own pace without feeling stupid. The interactive style of learning i.e. the 'games' we played, made it fun and some of the practices made more sense to me that way, and it was interesting hearing about the local flora and fauna. I'm really looking forward to getting out into the hills now and practicing."


"I applaud what your charity is striving to achieve and, as with most charities, you are short of funds. Please go ahead and cash my cheque as a small donation to your efforts and thanks for managing to juggle places on the course to allow Kat and I to attend on the same day."


"The day was absolutely brilliant, Andy is a wonderful teacher and the whole experience was very much worthwhile."


"I’d like to complement Andy on a great course. His teaching was excellent and easily understood. A very friendly, easy-going approach which put everyone at their ease. I definitely learnt a lot." 

"What a day it was...really fantastic. Andy really made the day a memorable one for patient...made me feel at ease...(looking back) I came down that and felt amazing!" Karen Farquar after Aonach Eagach experience.
