Dear Jim

My sincere thanks to you and all your team for making our event a success. Your personal guidance , overview and decision making was fantastic. NicK as your man on the ground was brilliant. The drivers were a key part of the team and really helped. The Mountain Leaders were very professional and experienced.

Every one of your team exuded warmth, support, dedication , expertise , preparation and planning skills .

You might think that was enough but they all were really pleasant people and that made a huge difference and should not be taken for granted.

8 friends deciding to do Three Peaks in three days to help celebrate a 50th. Nervous? worried? fit enough? We’d climbed one mountain but never 3. To use Jim & his company was in no doubt the best decision ever made and he ensured it would be a safe, unforgettable experience. His calm confident manner, the way he wanted to get to know all of us and then knew how to inspire each of us. We loved his humour, his stories and his t-shirts! Listening to him finding us an elusive bottle of champagne half way down Snowdon – what a star! Nothing was impossible. We just used our legs and for once could leave all the organisation & decisions to him…..bliss! I’ve read lots of testimonials from groups doing the 24hr challenge but if you’re like us and did it for the pride and camaraderie and possibly a once in a lifetime experience – then use Jim…….he deserves every accolade he gets.

3 Peaks in 3 Days

What can I say about Jim, Nick and his team of Mountain Leaders. Truly remarkable. Don’t believe we could have accomplished the hardest challenge I’ve ever tried without their help, support and ongoing motivation. Had such a great time. One of the most professional and funniest companies I’ve had the pleasure to work with.”

A big thank you to both you and your team of mountain guides for your superb support for the team from the Building Adhesives and ARDEX companies. Without the encouragement, support and professionalism of your excellent team I do not think we would have got through the challenge in the target time. We finished in 23 hours and 30 minutes in absolutely brutal weather conditions on two of the mountains. To beat the target time reflects the teamwork generated by your guides and though conditions were grim, you all made it fun and as enjoyable as possible, in very difficult circumstances. Please pass on my thanks and those of our team to a great bunch of people who made the challenge a positive experience for everyone!

I found Mountain and Glen to be a fantastic company to go walking with. The organisation was spot-on and the facilities provided at each rest point was far above my expectations. Both guides were excellent. Throughout the walk you never felt pressured to go beyond your capabilities but they also let us carry on when we didn’t want to hang about too long.

I would definitely recommend Mountain and Glen to anyone who is looking for a guide and I would definitely go walking with them again.

The Three Peaks Challenge was amazing and I enjoyed every minute of it. Mountain and Glen are an incredible team and I felt safe at all times. With their trusting presence they made the experience memorable! Cant wait to do it with them again!!”

I have been working with Mountain and Glen for 3 years on a number of challenges and I can honestly say that they are the best in the business. The standard of professionalism is second to none. From a health and safety point of view they use the best guides I have come across and the organisation of the event is flawless. We have expanded our trekking portfolio over the last year and wouldn’t consider using anyone else.

Jim and the Mountain and Glen team have organised three fantastic National 3 Peaks Challenges for Sense. Throughout these, the Mountain Leaders have been exceptional and ensured that everyone who took part felt supported and safe on this incredible event. Always there with words of motivation when the wind and rain were at their worst, they have enabled people to achieve one of the toughest UK walking challenges around and created many happy, proud memories

Thanks very much for everything at Yorkshire on June 11th. We couldn’t have been looked after better and there’s no way we would have got the time we did without the fantastic Tom. He managed to keep us really motivated throughout the day, and supported us through our one bad slump. We had a fantastic day and can’t wait to begin planning for the national 3 peaks next year. Thanks again Jim

Having just completed the three peaks challenge for the Anthony Nolan Trust I would like to express my sincere and heartfelt thanks to Jim and his team; you all helped to make it one of the most memorable experiences I have ever had . I know that I speak for the other members of the Newport Round Table team when I say without your expert organisational skills and encouragement we would not have been able to complete the event . Thanks once again !!!!

I would like to say thank you for the excellent experience of the 3 Peaks. We all had such a great time over the 3 days and achieved so much. Personal and team goals were met and the company was relaxed and supportive. The organisation of the event was very slick and ran ever so smoothly. Travel, food and provisions were ample and you clearly know what is needed to get through the challenge.

My sincere thanks to all the team at Mountain and Glen for their courteous, professional, good humoured and dedicated care of us on our recent successful completion of the 3 peaks challenge. I believe without their professional guidance, encouragement and preparation to every detail our challenge would not have succeeded. As part of the unofficial Irish Record Holders (12 completed this event) I wish to sincerely thank Jim and his team and highly recommend them without reservation. I will be back!!!!!!

Please pass my thanks on to the whole team on behalf of all the Weens Walkers. We had the best time of our lives and it was only made possible by their professionalism and support.

Jim and the team at Mountain and Glen made our mad ideas a reality. They are just incredibly ‘can-do’. Nothing was impossible….non-stop event across the entire South Downs Way in winter – no problem; Three Peaks and Welsh 3000 back-to-back – Sure. They designed safe but fun events, catering for all levels of fitness and insanity. Not a single detail was forgotten – expert advice and words of encouragement on tap; much needed sports massages; and not forgetting ‘Mrs Jim’s’ home-made cooking at the pitstops. All in all, a great experience and a great guy – we wouldn’t do another challenge without him!

Chris Marks

Our company enlisted the help of Mountain and Glen to help lead us through our 24 hour Three peaks Challenge. Jim from the outset was amazing to deal with, his friendly manner made us feel totally confident we would be in safe hands. The information such as training programmes and kit advice along with the support provided was invaluable and allowed us to be as prepared as we could be for the challenge ahead.

The guides on the day were amazing, all very knowledgeable and clearly had a real passion for the great outdoors and helping people share the experience of the mountains. They were supportive from start to finish and their positivity and belief in the team got us all up and down the mountain without any problems – not an easy task when there’s 13 people with varying levels of fitness!

I would definitely recommend Mountain and Glen to anyone looking to do a similar challenge, they made the whole experience easy to organise and stress free which is exactly what you need. Thanks very much Jim and the team – we will be back! http://www.fluid-design.co.uk

I cannot speak highly enough of Mountain and Glen. From the moment we decided to attempt the Three Peaks Challenge, they have been on hand to offer support and guidance. Throughout the Challenge, their professionalism, experience and ability to motivate shone through. A special mention must be given to our guides Jim, Davie and Mark who were exceptionally knowledgeable. I cannot recommend this challenge enough.

Thank you for all the effort you put into our challenge – I felt that the professionalism and patience of you and your team was outstanding. It must be difficult to adjust as the challenge progresses to suit different teams, but I felt you could not have done a better job for us.

Having undertaken a number of events and challenges over the years, Jim and his team delivered a great experience on and off the mountains. The set up of the check points was much better than previously experienced. I would use them again.

The event was organised and run by Jim and his team of Mountain Leaders. I have to say it was a fantastic weekend, not just the walk, but the people I met especially the Mountain and Glen team. Their knowledge and experience was vital in getting us all round safely and with a smile on our faces. Jim and his team’s friendly approach made the event challenging, fun and rewarding. I hope to do something similar again and wouldn’t pick any other team than Jim and the guys

On behalf of the team we would like to thank you for all your support during our Three Peaks Challenge and that includes you guys suffering from the hot van heaters so our clothes could dry to feeding us with lots of energy stuff and fun hot foods and drinks. Tom was a great guide who motivated us and made us eat sugar to give us energy and Jim’s driving was so great that we slept like babies. Your personality for the outdoors, expertise and support makes you a great company to choose for UK challenges.

Excellent, knew their stuff, good support and good guys and girls who let us get on with it and gave us pointers when needed.(Three Peaks Challenge)

The Mountain and Glen team did a great job on the weekend, they advised us of everything we should do, and were always there to support us. They did everything they could to make sure we had a chance of completing the Three Peaks within in the 24hours, especially after Scafell Pike when we thought we wouldn’t be able to do it!
