WHO WE ARE

T.M.M. Experiences started life as The Mountain Men, or rather we started as a group of work colleagues off to climb Ben Nevis for charity. Initially there were 8 guys and 3 ladies, all 3 ladies and 1 of the guys dropped out and the remaining 7 were nicknamed "The Mountain Men"...It stuck.

Somewhere along the way Ritchie Nash who organised everything introduced our Hill Safety Course as a way of passing on years of skills from a lifetime of both living outdoors and serving in the British Army.

In March 2019 Ritchie made a bold move and started The Mountain Men Ltd as a stand alone business with the introduction of "The Scottish Experience", our wild camping experience showing off Scotland.

As time marched on both the experiences and the courses began to grow at a promising rate and after a successful start 2019/20 saw us win a global award. Tour Company of the Year: Scotland was awarded by the Travel & Hospitality Awards much to our surprise and delight and highlighted our ethos of "Quality, Fairness and Value".

2020/21 looked really promising and suddenly along came Covid-19 and everything ground to a halt, 3 months of pacing back and forth and a lot of wishful thinking.

We are surviving and hopefully next year thriving and all the signs are promising. As we head into what will be our 3rd full year as a business our courses continue to do well and our experiences are becoming the mainstay of the business, which was the plan btw. 

For 2021/22 we have made a subtle change in that our experiences will now run under the banner of T.M.M. Experiences, this decision was taken to take away any confusion, we never have been a male only group and our experiences are about showing Scotland off in all her beauty not just taking you up hill.

It is with delight that we can announce that we have been nominated again this year for the same award we won last year and we keep our fingers crossed.

Ritchie is an ex career infantry soldier and instructor, he loves the outdoors and you can be sure you are in safe hands. 

A family man Ritchie believes in value and fun.

Davie is our right hand, assisting Ritchie in ensuring we give you the very best experience possible.

As you would expect he too is keen on the outdoors, indeed given the choice neither of them would ever be indoors.

WHAT WE DO

Scottish Experience

Our award winning all inclusive wild camp experience is the ultimate way to explore Scotland. We supply everything you need from tents to head torch and even a covered toilet. You come with sensible clothing and a sense of adventure.

Choose between The Skye Experience, The Arran Experience or The North Coast 500 Experience or let us tailor an experience to fit your needs.

Note: During the Covid-19 pandemic and it's aftermath we will be using individual and family tents as opposed to group tents.

BackPacker Experience

The BackPacker Experience accesses some of the more remote locations in Scotland. It differs in one major way from our Scottish Experience in that it is lightweight and there will be a degree of carrying your house on your back, nothing too strenuous though.

For this we supply a pre packed rucksack with everything you need incl lightweight tents and sleeping mats to keep the weight down. 

Choose between The West Highland Way Experience, The Mystery Experience or our adventurous Lochs & Island Experience.

Map reading and navigation training

Hill Navigation Training

The Mountain Men is our training division and run our Hill Navigation and Safety Courses which are designed to both teach you the skills you need for a successful day out on our mountains and give you the confidence to get off the beaten track.

Our instructor has over 30 years experience and was a highly qualified training instructor in the Army.

Our courses whilst exceptional are purposely kept low cost, we want you to learn the skills and enjoy our hills safely.

Outlander Experience

The Outlander Experience will take you on a tour of some of the well known film locations used in the popular tv series. Follow in the footsteps of Jamie and Claire Fraser. Stand in the shadows of some of our iconic locations and venture inside to get a flavour of the real history of these locations.

This is more than just a tv tour, this is an experience rivalled by no other.
