"I joined Trail Running Scotland for the Cairngorm Explorer weekend. It was a fantastic experience! Ian wasn't just a superb guide but he also gave us plenty of tips. The weekend was well organised and tailored to our level of experience and fitness. A great experience! Cannot wait for the next run together."

"I really enjoyed the Cairngorm Explorer weekend, it was exactly what I was looking for, two days of perfect distance in a stunning Scottish mountain setting. Ian was a great leader, aimed the routes at our level and with important breaks to appreciate the views and wildlife. Good technical teaching on running on a range of terrain, thanks will definitely be back for more!"

"I joined Trail Running Scotland for the Classic Scottish Trails trip. The 5 days of running were all superb and it was a great, stress free way of seeing some of Scotlands best bits. Definitely in safe hands with Ian and Laura - full of knowledge, very organised and fun to spend a week with. Couldn't recommend them enough!"

"A very enjoyable day on all counts. Ian ran the course in a thoughtful and professional manner, and the course was tailored to meet everybody's objectives. (Really important point if you are not sure wether to go or not)"

"Absolute professional - Ian inspires confidence in the most hostile of environments and couldn't be a more enthusiastic and capable guide. Can't wait to run with Ian again soon!"

"Ian's knowledge of the Scottish highlands and enthusiasm for running in the mountains, make him the perfect person to guide and advise you on an epic adventure!"



"From start to finish I had a great experience with Ian. Booking process and pre-trip contact was simple and friendly and the experience on the hills was cracking.

Ian took the time to understand my objectives and gave me a couple of days that were both challenging but achievable.

As an instructor Ian is very knowledgeable and he pushes your experience whilst maintaining safety practices. He has a great sense of humour and was good to spend time with. Added to this he was able to share lots of info on the local hills, flora and fauna.

I would highly recommend him as a guide for your trips to the Scottish highlands and I will head back up to spend time learning from him in the future."
