Hiyo crew, im going to be in Scotland on the weeks d of the 19th/20th doing a winter skills course and would quite like to get out on my own (well, with a mate, also on the course) on the Monday, but would need to hire boots and crampons and possibly gloves as well. Does anyone know if there is anywhere around Glencoe that could sort me out? Thanks a lot :)

P.s. Was tossing up whether to put this here or in the gear section. If you want me to move this thread I will

Plenty of options in Fort William. Such as Brighams, Alan Kimber etc.

Maybe try Ice Factor in Kinlochleven as that a bit closer to Glencoe.

Ice Factor don't have outdoor hire gear available at present I'm afraid, Fort William is the nearest - Calluna as has been said or I think Nevisport still do hire.

A few options in Fort William. Alan Kimber at Calluna has the advantage of being able to hand out and take in kit outwith shop hours.

Who are you doing the course with? They're bound to have contacts.
