Creag Meagaidh and beyond!

Ice Climbing Courses, Scotland

The best Ice Climbing Conditions in Scotland*

Climbing and mountaineering in safety relies on going where the conditions are best. Some days, thaw conditions drive us eastwards, where busier corries offer reliable granite and neve. Most of the time the west coast offers the greatest variety and quality of ice and mixed routes, all within forty minutes of Fort William.

Staghorn gullyBen Nevis & Gen Coe are hard to beat, but conditions on Creag Meagaidh often exceed expectations of wildness and beauty. Other good venues include Beinn Udlaidh and Aonach Beag. Each year, ice forms well in different places at different times. We are out in these mountains most winter days so get in touch if you’re interested in what’s ‘in nick’.
