Winter Courses & Guiding

On Ben Alligin Torridon

Heading out into the winter mountains in Scotland and other hills in Britain is far more serious than walking in summer and requires additional skills. The rewards, though, are immense. There are several courses to learn all the necessary skills and techniques to be safe whilst walking in the winter months

1 DAY BASIC SKILLS - Single day introductory winter skills course in Scotland & perfect for people with no winter walking experience

2 DAY WINTER SKILLS COURSES - This 2 day Winter Skills course covers the skills required for staying safe in the Scottish mountains

4 DAY WINTER SKILLS COURSES - A comprehensive 4 day skills course for hillwalking in winter conditions in Scotland


We offer a very flexible approach to our winter program. If you have a particular Munro or any other mountain you would like to summit then please get in touch. The local Cairngorms area have several Munros that we guide on, Summer and Winter. If you have a particular mountain you would like to climb then please get in touch. Our favourite mountains to guide on are in the Northwest Highlands. An Teallach and the Torridon region are firm favourites with us and are very spectacular hills. Depending on the mountain we can offer some basic winter skills en route to the summit if you have no previous winter experience.
