Scrambling or summer mountaineering is where rock climbing and hillwalking merge to give more technical ascents requiring a rope and some climbing techniques. Scotland is arguably the best area in the UK giving some fine mountaineering excursions: the famed Skye (Cuillin) Ridge, the big ridges of Ben Nevis and the wild rugged summits of the North West Highlands. Please see our Skye pages for scrambling on the Skye Ridge. 

Our courses fall into the two categories of either instructional aimed at delivering the skills necessary for safe independent mountain travel, or guided journeys using our intimate knowledge and expertise.

Instructional:
Our instruction courses focus on some key areas needed for safe roped scrambling. Use of naturally placed rock protection, belaying, abseiling, essential knots and technique. We also look at understanding guidebooks, route choice and route finding. These courses are also good preparation for Alpine Climbing. 


Guided:
These days are focussed on some of the classic scrambles and climbs in the Highlands. The Aonach Eagach, Curved Ridge or the traverses of Liathach, An Teallach to name but a few. A huge number of scrambles and possibilities are to be found in the Highlands and we are happy to help guide you across these itineraries.
