Winter Mountaineering in Scotland

Winter in Torridon & Applecross! A blend of the most spectacular & diverse scenery in Scotland set in a coastal mountain wilderness. These North West coastal mountains are breathtaking. Numerous fresh water and fjordlike sea lochs create a varied and spectacular landscape like no other; dissecting the mountains of Torridon, Kintail and Fisherfield.

Our trips based in these areas aim to gain you access to the numerous high summits, gullies and ridges offering a blend of guided mountain days with skills and safety input throughout each day.

If its pure mountain skills training you're after then you can now join our Cairngorm Plateau Expedition for a full immersion into the winter environment.These take place over a weekend or as a three day version during week days. New for the 2015/16 winter season we have an excellent Mountain training weekend based in Applecross using our local mountains.

Whatever you choose you can be assured of a safe and informative trip in our local wilderness mountains where you can benefit from our local instructors and their knowledge of the area.

Some info about out trips...
