Winter Activities

As a qualified Winter Mountain Leader you are in safe hands. Winter is a stunning time of the year to be venturing into the Scottish mountains and can last from November through to April. I lead people of all experience levels with the emphasis on giving you the confidence and skills to go out on your own or with your friends.


Note: Helemets hire is included in the cost of a day trip. All participants must have ice axes, stiff soled winter boots and crampons. I can provide advice on where to hire from including getting discounts.

Winter Skills Introduction

If you are new to the Scottish winter environment but have some previous walking experience, a reasonable level of fitness and the desire to learn new skills then this is the one for you. See the video.

Guided Winter Hiking

If you already have some experience of walking in winter with ice axes and crampons and want to walk some steeper routes such as gullies or simply improve your technique then this is for you. Check out the video.
