There is a lot of the Scottish Highlands to explore! Why not hire a Mountaineering and Climbing Instructor to explore whilst developing sound mountain skills such as route selection, navigation and problem solving. Classic areas such as the Cairngorm Mountains, the Mamores and the central Scottish Highlands are very accessible and offer stunning and diverse views. Add a bike and a little camping equipment and the sky is is the limit. Did I mention Skye, completely unique in challenge and severity in the UK. A little further to travel from the centres of population but steeped in history and literally gripping.
Summer walking and mountaineering courses can be 2 – 5 days long with a minimum of two people and a maximum of six. Now we call it summer, but winter weather can strike in pretty much any month of the year – and does! Learn what to take, how to solve issues and how to have an awesome and memorable experience despite the weather. And if the weather is good, join me for a summit bivvy; you will remember it for the rest of your life; I promise! Areas covered during this week may (subject to weather and conditions) include:
- Weather and conditions
- Clothing and equipment
- Navigation and route finding
- Camping and bivvying
- Emergencies and evacuation (how to get off safely)
