Description

Join me and discover some of the best spots for winter climbing in Scotland and feel like a real mountaineer!

The winter in Scotland offers fabulous and endless opportunities for winter climbing and is a great learning ground. Join me on this memorable experience!

I propose you come on one or several climbing days with me. We may choose to climb the highest peak in the United Kingdom, Ben Nevis. Standing at 1345 metres above sea level, west of the Grampian Mountains, it is the main rock climbing spot in Scotland. It provides both traditional scrambles and rock climbing for all levels.

You will find the trip fascinating! There are several routes to the summit. Ledge Route, the best route of its kind in the UK, has a bit of everything. It is a mild scramble, but it is not a hill walk. It isn’t particularly committed, but because of its length and situation it isn’t recommended for beginners.

Another path to the Ben Nevis summit is Green Gully, with some exposed rock. It offers incredible views!

Apart from Ben Nevis, there are a lot of other alternatives, from the east with the Cairngorms (the largest national park in the UK) to the west with Glen Coe.

Do you find winter climbing in Scotland tempting? Then please contact me and indulge in an amazing adventure! We will make a plan together according to your wishes and expectations.

About the guide

guide profile img

I am based in the heart of the Snowdonia National Park, in North Wales, in a village called Llanberis.
I have specialised in mountaineering and skiing. My main focus is to take my clients on great adventures in the British mountains and the European Alps, but I can also guide them in different places around the world.
I love sharing new challenges with my clients: whether it is about reaching the next summit or finding the best ski line.
To be safe as a mountaineer, keeping active is key. Therefore, I am always pushing forward and looking for new goals to reach.
I guide individuals and small groups. Please have a look at my favourite guiding programs and get in touch with me. It will be a great pleasure to share the mountains with you.
