Topic - Scottish routes to take learners round

hamiltonblake - on 27 Dec 2012
Hello

Myself and a friend have a fair bit of experience in mountaineering (in the Alps) and as such are confident with the kit, and with scrambling, glacier crossing, etc - however I've never been to Scotland (for mountaineering).

We're planning on taking a few friends (who haven't done it before) up to Scotland in January or February to teach them how to use crampons, axe, ropes etc, and do a few of the easier peaks over three or four days.

I've found this website http://scottishwinterroutes.com/ which seems good for routes.

Can anyone please suggest routes which are mainly walking and easy scrambling which would be good to take beginners round to learn the ropes? Would it be advised to be roped up on these easier routes?

Cheers!
