Munros & Mountaineering

Heading to the scottish hills invariably means you’ll encounter other like-minded folk. For many of us, “bagging” Munros or ticking the tops listed by Sir Hugh Munro back in 1891 spurs us to discover hidden beauty and adventure in remote highland glens.

Joining a club is an excellent way to improve your navigation skills and share transport costs to the mountains but when your leisure time is pressured, a guide’s experience can often pass on these skills much more effectively on the bigger hills in bad weather. Everyone develops a different taste for adventure and here in the West Highlands we have a vast range of walks and climbs at all standards.

Your instructor or guide’s expertise will help you to relax and enjoy the journey whatever the highland weather. We have many years of empathy and local knowledge behind us so please pick up the phone or email us any query. An obstacle or disability is often something we have helped someone overcome before. Meeting up before 9am to set off up these 3000′ peaks is not always easy. If your initial enquiries about accommodation or travel don’t immediately suit you, please get in touch and we will do our very best to help.

For many folk, learning how to use axe and crampons safely and become more confident in navigating themselves makes a winter mountaineering weekend the first logical step in opening up a whole new season of hill walking.

Rock climbing and abseiling is not an essential part of mountaineering, but these courses will teach you these skills if you are hoping to climb the In’ Pinn’. Many Munros lie within easy reach of Fort William but the spectacular alpine scrambling on the Isle of Skye draws our attention for much of the summer, so picking our way along the ridge in thick cloud is something we relish at any time of year. Call or email for advice on tackling the more demanding Munros of the West Highlands or heading abroad.
