Type of Trip
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!

What happens if I need to cancel the trip?
If you decide to cancel, you’ll get a 100% refund (minus fees) if the cancellation is notified up to 60 days before the start of the tour, a 75% refund (minus fees) if you cancel between 59 and 30 days before the start of the tour, and a 50% refund if you cancel between 29 and 21 days before the start of the tour. If you cancel less than 21 days before the first day of the tour, you won’t receive a refund. Take into account, however, that if accommodation, flights or transfers were included in the trip you booked, then a different policy may apply as the guide will be bound by the provider’s cancellation policy.
What happens if the guide cancels the trip because of bad weather/unsuitable conditions?
If bad weather or unsuitable conditions force the guide to cancel the trip, he or she will: a) propose a similar activity at a different place where conditions are better, or b) propose to postpone the activity until a later date, or c) cancel. If you refuse option a), our cancellation policy will apply. Please note, however, that the call to cancel a trip due to bad weather can only be made by the guide (not the client).
What happens if the guide doesn’t show up or cancels for personal reasons?
If the guide cancels for reason of injury or other, you will get a 100% refund on your trip.
