Scrambling & Mountaineering in Scotland

Mountaineering in the Highlands is one of our favourite past times. Whether you are new to scrambling, a keen hill walker looking for their next adventure or a seasoned scrambler looking to up skill, we are confident that we have the course to meet your needs. As members of the Association of Mountaineering Instructors (AMI), we specialise in offering bespoke skills courses and guiding throughout the Scottish Highlands.

All scrambling and mountaineering is worked at a 1:2 ratio.
