From humble beginnings as a small group raising money for charity, T.M.M. Experiences (formally The Mountain Men) has quickly become Scotland’s Premier Wild Camp Specialist.
Currently, they offer several experiences, all developed and built upon by the work of a knowledgeable and dedicated team led by former soldier and outdoorsman Ritchie Nash. All their wild camping experiences are all-inclusive and all equipment is supplied for you allowing you to travel light.
The Scottish Experience
Scotland is a beautiful country and with the Scottish Experience, you get to see so much more of it than you would on a standard run-of-the-mill tour. With this Experience, you get a fantastic opportunity to get up close and personal with the rugged landscape while camping in comfortable and modern tents.
All the equipment is supplied and carried by the T.M.M. team allowing you the freedom to take in the sights. You can choose between the Skye Experience, the Arran Experience, the North Coast 500 Experience, or even tailor an experience to suit your preferences.
The Backpacker Experience
As the name suggests this experience is all centered around backpacking and differs from the Scottish Experience in that you are carrying your backpack for a short spell, this allows us to access some of the more remote and wonderful locations hidden to most tourists. A typical backpack weighs only 12kg and contains everything you need.
This experience will involve a short hike to a camp location and once there the freedom to explore your surroundings or just relax around the campfire whichever you prefer. Currently on offer, there is the West Highland Way Experience, the Lochs and Islands Experience, and the Mystery Experience for which your destination always remains a pleasant surprise. A member of the T.M.M. team will be on hand at all times.
The Outlander Experience
This is a movie tour with a difference. Spend four days submerged in the land of the Jacobites, whilst visiting several locations from the hit TV show Outlander. Sleep out in the wild like the warriors of yesterday, immerse yourself in the passion that is Scotland. This Experience includes entry to four main attractions from the series including Culloden Visitor Centre and Battlefield.
Hill Navigation Training
When not operating their Experiences and under their original name of The Mountain Men, two excellent courses are available. The low-cost but highly effective courses are designed to give back and build both the skills and the confidence of walkers.
The main course is The Hill Navigation & Safety Course which covers all aspects of safety on the hills including what kit to carry, how to deal with emergency situations, and how to navigate in any conditions. The second course is the Winter Navigation Course and is more of a confidence booster to show candidates that the skills they have learned really do work in all conditions. The Mountain Men travel all over Scotland providing these courses.
- Fantastic range of experiences that offer a unique opportunity to visit off-the-beaten-path attractions and landscapes.
- Brilliant service and devotion to customer satisfaction as evidenced by numerous online reviews and via feedback from the TH Awards team.
- The option of taking part in a navigation and safety course demonstrates a strong dedication to visitor preparedness and wellbeing.
