Who are Mountain Trails?
“…The guide, Russell Mills, was great. Calm and good-natured and with great skill on keeping a group of people together and in good spirits on a cold raining day in the mountains. Since that first walk I have been on many walks with Russ in various locations on the East Coast of Ireland. He remains a point of inspiration for my adventures into the wild…” S. B. Dublin
