More Info

Scotland is a beautiful and diverse country and there is probably no better way to experience this than by rock climbing. Though many guides offer climbing trips year round, the best time to go is during the summer when it is light for more than 12 hours each day. As far north as the Isle of Skye, it never really gets properly dark in late June and early July. While Scotland boasts a diverse landscape with a low population density, many of the top spots are right nearby small hamlets and therefore easily accessible for single day ascents. Remember: Scotland is part of Great Britain and the United Kingdom; it is NOT part of England.
