Choose your favourite route in Scotland and leave for one or more days of climbing and scrambling with Euan, IFMGA certified mountain guide.


+1 Day

Apr - Jun, Sep, Oct




There are many routes in Scotland for great days out. In fact, we can find similar terrains than in the Alps.

I have made a list of some routes that include rock climbing and scrambling. Besides, I focused on routes where we can keep moving for a long time using our hands and feet. I tried to avoid the stop/start property of rock climbing.

The following are my proposed options:
– North Buttress, Curved Ridge or Crowberry Ridge on the Buachaille Etive Mor.
– Ledge Route, Castle Ridge, Tower Ridge, Northeast Buttress or Observatory Ridge on Ben Nevis.
– Traverse of the Cobbler and The Southeast Ridge
– Afterthought Arete and Pygmy Ridge at Northern Cairngorms.

These routes are apt for all enthusiast hill walkers, rock climbers or scramblers. Of course I can tailor the trip to meet the level of the participants.

Do you want to experience rock climbing / scrambling in Scotland? Then please contact me and let's discuss about what you would like to do and learn. I will be happy to guide you in these beautiful mountains which I know so well. Another option for hiking in Scotland is the Cuillin!
