The high mountains of Scotland offer a unique challenge to mountaineers and climbers that comes with unrivalled rewards. The Scottish mountains have a world-wide reputation as the perfect training ground for mountaineering in the Alps or higher ranges.
For our Scottish winter courses we are based in Glencoe, with much of the best climbing in Scotland right outside the front door. Our comfortable hotel-base ‘Alltshellach’ is situated at the head of Loch Leven amongst the most stunning scenery in Scotland. This is the ideal location for reliable winter mountaineering conditions, within a short drive of many iconic winter venues including Glen Coe, Ben Nevis, Aonach Mor and the Mamores.
We recognise that to learn effectively and a gain the most from every day, it is important to have a comfortable, relaxing base for your adventures. That’s why we return to Alltshellach each year.
It has everything to help make your course an enjoyable and rewarding one. Comfortable rooms, a relaxing bar, great food designed to fuel you up before, a big day and refuel you on your return and even a swimming pool and spa to soothe those aching muscles. This year, we’ve included a night’s bed and breakfast at the end of your course too, so you can leave in the morning relaxed and recharged before your journey home.
Whilst you are with us in Scotland you’ll be able to take full advantage of our equipment stores too. Our stores are packed with the latest high-quality equipment and our staff will help you select the most suitable gear for you and the winter environment. Of course, all technical gear hire is included in your course fee so, as always at Plas y Brenin, there are no hidden costs.
Combined, our high-standards of instruction, accommodation, food and equipment represent an unrivalled experience and excellent value for money. So if you want to explore the Scottish mountains in winter, take a look at our courses now. http://www.pyb.co.uk/scotland
