SMC's Highland Scrambles North now available on Rockfax Digital Product News

© Rockfax/SMC

Over the past year the Scottish Mountaineering Club (SMC) has been working with Rockfax to digitise their back catalogue of climbing guidebooks. Earlier this year Scottish Sport Climbs was added to Rockfax Digital, joining Scottish Winter Climbs and some select crags from Scottish Rock and Polney from Highland Outcrops South.

Highland Scrambles North represents the first of the SMC's scrambling guides to be released in digital format and covers the wealth of scrambling across the grade range to be found north of the Great Glen and in the Western Isles.

"The North-West Highlands and Outer Hebrides contain some of the best scrambling anywhere in Scotland. If you enjoy unfrequented rock on wild, rugged peaks then this is the place for you..."
