We enjoyed a great walk up Stac Pollaidh with Pete as our guide. We thoroughly enjoyed it and found Pete to be very knowledgable and great company. Rosie recommended a fabulous restaurant in the area which we enjoyed on the last night of our honeymoon. Thank you Rosie! We will certainly book again with McKenzie Mountaineering next time we are in the Highlands.

I contacted them enquiring whether they were able to run a days activity which was not shown on their website and they immediately set the day up for me. Couldn't be more helpful. Fully recommend them and shall definitely use them again in the future to arrange further trips, next time maybe 4-5 days hiking/scrambling in the mountains.

Rosie and Ben’s is a true slice of paradise. Phenomenal views, location, and walks straight out of the house. They could not have been more hospitable - the rooms are comfortable and spacious, yet the house is really cosy. Wood-burner... roll-top bath... breakfast of champions. Perfect for anyone who wants to hit the hills or just relax. See you again soon for sure!

It is always difficult to select where are the best places to walk when you go for a hike in an unfamiliar location. I found this out to our cost when walking last week around Wick. Plenty of Boggy/soaked ground to traverse and a plethora of barbed wire to be navigated. No such problem the week before in the Ullapool area. We had teamed up with Ben & Rosie and asked them to take us on some interesting and challenging walks in the Ullapool area. They did a lot of research for us on suitable challenges that still avoided the worst of the weather and the ground conditions and gave us a miriad of options to choose from. McKenzie, having the resources to do linear walk also helped massively to open up the possibilites which we, on our own, would not have been able to accomplish easily. Well done you two and thank you for making it a trip to remember. Phil & Helen

Spent a week with Rosie and Ben while on a geology trip to the GeoPark. Such great people, really friendly and helpful and super hosts. The views from kitchen and deck were stunning, all the way to the head of Loch Broom. The mountains around are fantastic and only a 5 min drive into Ullapool which is great. Really good shops and fantastic fish restaurants. Fascinating history and great feel. If you’re up that way their B and B is amazing and worth every penny. I’d give 8 stars if there were any!!

Walked the west highland way last week with Ben and Rosie. I had a magic time on the walk and climbed Ben Nevis via Carn Mor Dearg Arete. Thanks again you 2 and Corrie for a great time. See you again soon.

Bin mit Benni und Rosie schon den West Highland Way sowie den Arran Coastal Way gelaufen, es waren beide male wunderschöne Wanderungen durch die Atemberaubenden Landschaften Schottlands! Die beiden kümmern sich wunderbar um ihre Gäste, man kann sich einfach fallen lassen und das Wandern genießen. Vielen Lieben Dank für die tollen Urlaubstage.

Have just got home from doing the West Highland way with Rosie, Ben and the new friends that we have made. Excellent 7 days that was hard work but enjoyable. Rosie and Ben go out of their way to make sure that everything goes along smoothly and nothing is too much in terms of making sure their clients are looked after. Would definitely use them again on future on specialty trips. Sorry the week had to end. Thank you Rosie Ben and Corrie.

Absolutely fantastic time, first time doing a hiking holiday and I cannot wait to go again, and I will only go with McKenzie now! Knowledgeable, friendly, professional. Rosie was just lovely (I'm sure Ben is too but I didn't meet him �). Roll on next year!

Absolutely brilliant time on the West Highland Way in May 2018. Rosie & Ben are fantastic guides; Organised, informative, friendly and funny. The trip was filled with lots of facts & stories along the way, new friendships were made, gazzillions of beautiful photos taken and we were made to feel so well looked after from the first footstep to the very last. By the end of the trip we really felt like a wee family and were all very sad to part and make our ways home... I even missed Corrie dog drooling on my leg! Can't recommend these guys enough! x

If you are looking for expert guidance along the West Highland Way Mckenzie Mountaineering should be your choice. Rosie and Ben are two of the most experienced, knowledgeable, fun and gorgeous guides you could possibly ask for. Excellent organisation, accommodation and informative guidance throughout this sublime trip through Bonnie Scotland.

Just finished my 4th West Highland Way and my first with Mckenzie Mountaineering and I had tears in my eyes when it ended. What a brilliant week. Brilliant people, unbelievably amazing weather all excellently run by Ben and Rosie with a little help from Corrie the dog who corralled us along the way making sure we were all together. New friends made and great memories forged. Highly recommended 😀
