Scotland is one of the World’s great places, the Highland’s & Island of Scotland are a place of unparalleled beauty and we deliver an unforgettable experience in the heart of the Scottish Highlands.
In 2018 we are once again running a full action packed Scottish winter mountaineering skills programme. All our mountaineering courses are progressive and are run at a pace that will allow you to build and develop the skills required to travel above the snow line.
All our Scottish winter mountaineering week long courses are Directed by Bren Whelan, a Full Mountain Instructors Certificate holder with 15 years of experience climbing, working and running courses in Scotland.
Winter skills courses are based in Fort William on the West Coast of Scotland in the shadow of Ben Nevis, the UK’s highest summit (1344m’s). We are perfectly positioned for a winter ascent of ‘The Ben’.
