Scottish Winter Climbing, winter walking in Scotland.

We will be running courses and guided days in both Scotland and the Lake District.

We'll be out enjoying snow and ice climbing, as well as great days out walking classic routes across the Lake District Fells and Highlands of Scotland.


Winter mountaineering in the Scottish Highlands

Winter is an exciting season for heading into the UK mountains. As a winter walker you will need extra technical skills and knowledge to deal with the snow and ice-covered terrain. Knowing about safe route choices and avoiding avalanche prone slopes is just the start. Moving around in crampons competently on steep ground and using an ice-axe correctly, are essential skills to acquire.


Our courses are the best way to arm yourself, with solid foundation skills, to enable you to head out on your own independent winter adventures. Winter navigation requires focus and good technique, learn the essentials with us, as we journey through the Scottish mountains. Classic journeys through the wild winter-mountains, bagging big mountain summits like Ben Macdui or Ben Nevis are all part of the course. We will introduce you to the techniques needed when venturing into steep gullies and technical, graded mountain terrain. Our expert instructors possess a great depth of knowledge that you will be able to draw on, as they instruct and coach you every step of the way.
