After a successful winter and as the snows recede even if somewhat abruptly this spring, it's time to think of the summer programmes and courses that we are offering in the Scottish Highlands.

We offer a range of summer hill walking courses through to advanced guided rock climbing courses from the valley crags to mountain cliffs and sea stacks. These courses are all tailormade to suit individual needs.

Our courses are listed below and give a rough outline of examples but we can tweak and change things to your requirements and also we can facilitate the idea's that you may have.

All course are run by professional mountain guides and instructors. For full details on courses including prices please have a look at the website listed below and feel free to email me directly to chat through any ideas you may have:
