I was recommended Iian & we set up a 121 mountain skills course. I don't consider myself a fast learner but with Iian's instruction I was that day, Iian covered what... More

I had a fantastic time! What an unsung and underrated part of Ireland is Donegal. I couldn't recommend a better way to experience it's wildness than with Unique Ascent, very well done!

Being back in Donegal for a little refresh training and I wasn't disappointed. Knowing Iain now quiet well as a guide I can always trust in his opinion and advice. Did some mountain skills few years back which was great for the Irish hillwalking. Cant wait to be back for more climbing. See you later!!

A friend and I did rock climbing on Cruit Island last weekend. It was an amazing experience, Iain is very passionate about the outdoors, and time flew out there climbing on the rocks. Couldnt have asked for better a better instructor for climbing! Will definitely use unique Ascent again. Cheers!

I completed a week long Mountain Leadership training with Iain and Unique Ascent. This was a fantastic experience. The week was based in the Beautiful area in Northwest Donegal around Erigal mountain and the Poisioned Glen. Iains knowledge and Training in Mountain Leadership is top class. I had a fantastic week and learnt a great deal.

Wonderful weekend, observing a Lowland Leader Training Course with Iain Miller. Lots of delightful tracks and trails to explore in and around the Donegal Mountain Lodge. Encouraging, concise and clear instruction to those attending over the two days. Setting them up for the positive path towards the Lowland Leader Award. Looking forward to another visit. DE
