Scottish winter mountain walking

We love spending time in the Scottish highlands, especially in the winter time. We offer guided days out in the snowy Cairngorm mountains between December and April. Our team can show you how to use winter equipment such as an ice axe and crampons, some top tips for winter navigation, emergency winter shelter building and avalanche awareness skills. Or you can let us make all the decisions and guide you around some or our favourite mountain days and make the best of the weather and snow conditions.
