Scotland's Premier Wild Camp Experience

"Start with handshakes, end with hugs"

WHO WE ARE

T.M.M. Experiences started life in 2017 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 Navigation 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 saw us win a global award. "Tour Company of the Year: Scotland" was awarded by the Travel & Hospitality Awards (awarded for 2020) much to our surprise and delight. 

2020 was a strange year as we are all too aware, in March Covid-19 took hold and everything ground to a halt, 3 months of pacing back and forth and a lot of wishful thinking. We did get out eventually and a lot of happy and possibly relieved customers enjoyed some amazing trips. The year culminated in a 2nd global award, again from the Travel & Hospitality Awards and this time "Excellence in Service". We may need to buy a trophy cabinet soon.

2021 introduced us as T.M.M. Experiences. We took the decision to change the name for 2 main reasons and to cut out 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 hills.

2021 also saw the introduction of our Scottish Kayaking Experience where we take to the water in very safe inflatable kayaks and further show off our amazing country. We started the West Highland Way Challenge which brought expansion and 2 vehicles out full time and the icing on the cake we won the "Camping Experience of the Year" award from Corporate Livewire Prestige Awards and we are immensely proud of our service to you.

2022 is here, Covid is still with us and we are going further still with our 3rd vehicle coming out and a larger team of staff to support both you and the business, including our first female Experience Co-ordinators, it looks like being to be a lively year for all.

Underpinning everything we do are 3 important standards..."Quality, Fairness and Value". People often comment we are "too" cheap but we believe we offer you value for money, we do not and will not subscribe to the rip off culture we all know exists. So please don't think we are "cheap", we offer an excellent service at a value for money price and we are proud to do so. 

Meet the Team

Ritchie is the driving force and the brains behind T.M.M. (yes it is I writing this.) 

Ritchie was a career infantry soldier and instructor and loves the outdoor life and Scotland as a whole.

Ritchie comes into his own in and around a campsite and enjoys the quiet moments shared around the fire.

Davie.jpg

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.

Davie turns up when he can and whilst not employed by T.M.M. he is a valuable addition to the team.

Joe.jpg

Joe is....well Joe, if you are lucky enough to meet him you will understand that statement.

Joe is a behind the scenes in your face bloke who turns up from time to time and tries to get everyone to sing. An ex "Para" Joe needs the outdoors and is never happier than when he is round the campfire with a dram in one hand and a captive audience.

Ryan.jpg

Ryan absolutely is not an outdoors enthusiast, far from it. Luckily he is a whizz on the computer because as our Office Manager that is where he will be spending most of his time. 

He does have an in with the boss however as Ritchie is his step dad. 

A touch compulsive when he finds something he likes, his skills will be put to good use.

Jeanette.jpg

Jeanette is semi retiring in 2022 to pursue more of the things she loves to do and that includes getting outdoors more.

A bit more gentile than some of the team she will bring a different approach to your experience, it may mean you wake up to yoga or wander around in a silent disco, dancing is likely to feature and well we don't think you will be bored around Jeanette.

Karen loves walking, climbing, kayaking, camping and outdoor adventures, we think she is in the right place then. 

Having been out with us on numerous experiences in the past Karen is keen to be set free and get in the water, yes you read it right, every chance she gets it's down to the swim suit and in she plunges, brrr. 

Karen is looking forward to sharing her adventures with you.

20211023_073911.jpg

Chris often has more important things to do with his time than play around with us, bringing up Ritchie's grandchildren and looking after his daughter are the main things. From time to time though he loves and needs to escape and what better way to do so.

Chris probably doesn't realise how much he does for us and is an important part of the team and supports the business in a multitude of ways.

Margaret will spend most of her time looking out for our West Highland Way Challengers. 

Margaret has a background in travel & hospitality and has walked "The Way" twice, 34 years apart lol. She is looking forward to getting started and to seeing more of our beautiful country. 

When asked for comment for the website she said "When you are doing something you love it's not work", we have to agree.

WHAT WE DO

Our triple award winning all inclusive wild camp experience is the ultimate way to explore Scotland. From the outset we take care of everything, we supply all the equipment you need during your experiences, tents (or hammocks), sleeping bags, even a head torch. You come with sensible clothing and a sense of adventure.

As the title suggests we will be showing off Scotland and we have a range of experiences which help you get what you want out of your time with us. Visit the islands of Skye or Arran, take a road trip on the North Coast or test yourself with our West Highland Way Challenge where we fully support you throughout your 6 day trek from Milngavie to Fort William, thousands of people complete this walk every year and rest assured when you finish it you will be both relieved and elated at completing.

Maybe you prefer a more relaxed walking holiday, if so why not try our Arran Coastal Way Experience, Scotland in Miniature will not disappoint. 

If you have other ideas we can even tailor your very own Scottish Experience, tell us exactly what you want to achieve and let us figure it out for you. No crazy prices either, whilst we might enjoy a walk we will never hike up the prices, remember "Quality, Fairness and Value." 

Fancy a bit more adventure, want to see the sights other companies can't show you, need a different perspective on life then why not try one of our Kayak Experiences. We use inflatable kayaks for these, the boats are incredibly stable in the water and after 5 minutes in one you will feel right at home. Sit back in the comfy seat and enjoy the experience and the scenery.

Choose between our Lochs & Islands or our Great Glen Way Experiences, our Lochs & Islands will see you explore Scotland's amazing waterways and with luck even spend a night or 2 on one of the remote islands. The Great Glen Way is more of a challenge, 60 miles, 5 days, Fort William to Inverness covering the Caledonian Canal including Loch Lochy, Loch Oich and Loch Ness. Sounds hard doesn't it? Yet we have allowed plenty of time to enjoy this and nobody will pressure you at any point. At all times, on all our experiences we want you to relax, enjoy your time and make great memories.
