New For Winter 2017

In the past we have only offered Private Courses but after having consulted a lot of our clients, and having received lots of useful feedback, we've decided to start offering a range of 'open' courses running on specific dates that anyone can book onto. We will still be offering Private Courses for those that would prefer one and our pricing will be the same as our Private Guiding rates.

Also new for this winter we will be offering free hire of ice axes, crampons, snow shovels, and ski goggles to clients on our courses. Plus in addition to our popular 2 day & 5 day winter skills courseswinter mountaineering and intro to winter climbing courses we have two new courses on offer:

Avalanche Avoidance- 1 Day -An essential course for any winter hill goer that wants to develop, or refresh, there awareness of avalanche avoidance.

Winter Classics -5 days of guiding on some of the most sough after and classic climbs that Scotland has to offer.
