We completed a winter skills course in early Feb with Mike from Glentrek. Would thoroughly recommend this great local company. Communication before the day was faultless regarding kit lists, meeting points etc. Mike himself is really personable, and makes you feel relaxed and included from the off. He also quite clearly loves his local hills, knows his stuff and is... More

I did an advanced winter skills course with Glentrek at Glenshee. Very friendly and knowlegable staff and good instruction. I'm very happy and I would use the company again. I have also had a number of friends who have also used the company with good reviews.

My winter walking experience with glentrek was a really worthwhile experience. Mike the instructor was very knowledgeable, friendly and ensured everyone got the most out of the day. All kit that was provided, was in good condition, and the venue leant itself well to learning and experiencing winter walking. The weather became quite extreme at times with the wind knocking...

As my wife and I are in our early sixties, although reasonably fit, we were a bit apprehensive about being able to cope on the day of winter skills. We shouldn't have worried as Mike was very informative, extremely knowledgeable, and paced the day for the six of us in the group. Mike's enthusiasm relaxed everyone, and that allowed all... More

Having used similar organisations before, I had a degree of trepidation about whether everything would work, but the experience was faultless from start to finish - taxis and luggage in the right place at...
