Let Scott, a certified mountaineering inctructor, introduce you to the amazing world of rock climbing with a basic introductory course in Scotland.
Take your first steps into the world of rock climbing in the beautiful Scottish outdoors! Let me guide you on a fantastic introductory route out of Fort William in my Ben Nevis and Glencoe course!
Fort William is a major hub for climbing and trekking because of its location to Ben Nevis and the other amazing mountain routes in Scotland. Its surrounding landscape caters to first time climbers as well as seasoned veterans.
The switch from indoor climbing to facing real rock in the outdoors can be intimidating, and I can help you with this transition. With the incredible Scottish terrain as our office, I will show you the ropes of rock climbing.
We will focus on improving the skills and abilities you are already bringing to the mountain. I will build on your fundamentals by advancing your ropework and by making placing and removing gear second nature.
Establishing comfort in the basics prepares you to take rock climbing to the next level and face new and exciting challenges. If you have been dreaming about scaling the real outdoors and are ready to leave the climbing gym, then this program is for you.
You should be physically prepared for this course, but it is for everyone. The most important requirement is a passion for the sport.
Book this Ben Nevis and Glencoe program now and make your dreams of climbing Scottish rock a reality!

I am a fully qualified Mountaineering Instructor based in Fort William, on the west coast of the Scottish Highlands.
I have been guiding in the UK for 10 years and chose the Scottish Highlands due to their remote feel and beauty. Rock climbing, Ice climbing, mixed climbing and more can be done in this area and it is all so accessible.
We offer a wide range of trips with Ben Nevis guiding, the Skye Cuillin ridge and Glencoe guiding amongst our more popular trips.

Thanks to Scott for a great intro to trad climbing day. We learnt about all the necessary basics needed for leading trad and my partner got the chance to lead a diff. It was his very first trad lead and he was extremely happy to have the opportunity, with Scott on a static rope beside him to check gear placements etc. Scott was very knowledgeable, answered all questions we had and was overall a great teacher. Would book more activities with him in the future.
