If you’re thinking about booking a Winter Hillwalking Experience with Ocean Vertical, don’t hesitate – you won’t regret it! After a few days of snow had fallen in the Highlands we booked at short notice and had a brilliant day on Stob a’Choire Odhair with Stevie.
Conditions – and Stevie’s choice of mountain given the mixed forecast – were perfect. We learnt a huge amount about being in the mountains in winter (planning, decision-making, use of equipment) and had a whole lot of fun in the process. The smiles at the summit said it all! Stevie took the time to find out what we all wanted from the day and managed the different levels in our group really well, giving just the right level of support and encouragement to the less confident (me!) as well as the right level of challenge to the more confident.
The pick up and drop off service is great; it means you arrive at the hill fresh (and can snooze on the way home after the day’s adventures… )
Looking forward to our next OV trip!
