Hi, I'm thinking in travel to Scotland, September or October, and I want to climbing. I'm Brazilian but I'm living in Dublin at the moment. Does anyone want climbing with me in Scotland? I'm climbing almost every week where in Dublin, trad climbing. I can climbing VS and HVS (in a good day :). Also I really want to try winter climbing.
Cheers,
Sara

might be worth narrowing down a bit where in Scotland you intend to visit :-)

I'm not sure yet. I'm researching about the places, but I couldn't decide yet. Do you have any suggestions?

You can look up at Dumbarton Rock, it's rather famous place.

I want to spend some time in Glasgow, but I want to go camping and visit a few places in the country. Do you recommend some trekking?

If you want to explore, hire a car and cruise around the West Coast and North West if the weather allows. The best scenery and most of the best climbing. Post here in advance with your rough plan and try to collect people en-route!

I can't afford this kind of trip...hahaha. I'll travel in the most economic way I can. Do you can tell me the best month to do ice climbing in Glencoe? And another area to do ice climbing?

The most notable pure ice climbing in Glen Coe is at fairly low level and will only be found in the depths of a cold winter, most likely January. But don't hold your breath!

Ben Nevis (for example) is more reliable, the best months arguably Feb/March.
