We believe that the mountains that hug the NC500 and the Scottish Highlands as a whole is the best place in the world to go mountaineering and that is why we love mountain guiding in the Highlands and the NC500. Majestic mountains surround great glens, with hidden waterfalls and exciting rivers which leave visitors awe-struck and wanting to return for more.
We will listen to what you want to experience and tailor your mountain guiding day to fit this. Whether it is a low-level trip in a glen or an amazing adventure across one of the many mountain ridges, you can be assured of a trip personalised to you.
We have been mountain guiding in the Highlands and around the NC500 for over twenty years so have a vast amount of local knowledge and experience. As fully qualified summer and winter Mountain Leaders you can be assured to be in safe hands.
Where do we start and meet
We guide all around the Scottish Highlands and the NC500. Your mountain day is unique to you, so we do not have a set mountain we guide on as we like to meet you where you want to be guided. We like to find out where you are staying in the Scottish Highlands and meet you at a location that is convenient to you. We also know the Highlands of Scotland really well so we are happy to make a suggestion if you are looking for some inspiration.
£120 for 1:1, £20 per extra person thereafter
We have a maximum of 6 participants per guide (please get in touch for group prices for 7+ participants)

Day in the Scottish Mountains
“Can’t recommend Chris at Liquid Footprints highly enough. We arranged a day out walking in the mountains with our three children (aged 14,12 and 11) on 2 January. Chris met us locally and took us on an adventure up the east coast that we’ll never forget. Walking through the rain and howling wind, Chris’s passion for and knowledge of the environment shone through and at no point did any of us consider the weather – it was all part of the experience! He took us through beautiful glens, provided a portable shelter for a lunch break by a loch and then encouraged us to the peak of a ‘mountain’ – just an amazing, memorable day out, peppered with red squirrel and deer sitings, trying to stand upright and lots and lots of laughs.
Just a brilliant, brilliant day and we’ll definitely book again the next time we make it up that way.”
