We were expertly guided by Stuart up (and down!) Ben Nevis at our own pace. Maximum Adventure provided advice on preparation and equipment before the event, which was really helpful. We experienced some problems during the descent and Stuart calmly and patiently ensured that we both got back safely. His guidance was invaluable and if (like us) you are looking for professional back-up and support whilst you achieve your personal challenges I would highly recommend Maximum Adventure.


I enjoyed walking up Ben Nevis the guide was very good. We were kept together as a group. Had knowledge on the mountain and guided us where to put our feet on difficult parts, offered to wait in queue at trig point if we wished to have our lunch sitting down. He ate his standing up in the queue. It was too cold to stand to have our picture taken at the trig point then all sit down and have lunch. The queue was quite long. it was -5 or below at the top and a bit misty. Recommended a walk for me to do the next day so I had good views of Ben Nevis. When we got down after the walk he waited until my taxi came as it was 10 minutes late and all the others in the group had gone to their accommodation. The administration was good even emailing me 12 hours before which reassured me the walk was on. The guide also text everyone with his mobile number in case anything went wrong on the day. I felt Maximum Adventure very professional and I would use the company again.
