Customer reviews - what you say about Glenmore Lodge

Graeme and Peter were excellent - clearly very experienced and able to give all 10 participants what they wanted and needed. Initial discussion followed by the pool session settles a lot of anxieties and allowed everyone to get the most from their course. The fact we could not get on the sea because of weather in no way detracted, rather I think it enhanced the training for everyone. Great fun!

Coming to the lodge was the usual great experience, thanks to 2 fantastic instructors (Mark & Sarah) who managed to make the transition to the sharp end of the rope a lot easier than expected. Great course, with lots of fun and some excellent weather prediction.
