Winter mountaineering in Scotland (4 days) | undefined

Join a MIC certified guide for an excellent and informative 4-day winter mountaineering course and climb some of Scotland's most iconic winter-time peaks.



4 Days

Jan - Mar, Dec




* Learn the necessary techniques and safety protocols for winter mountaineering.

* Make several ascents of different peaks over the course of the four days.

* Enjoy the stunningly beautiful Highlands scenery everywhere we go.


For avid winter walkers looking to learn the necessary skills to make slightly tougher snow-covered ascents, then our 4-day winter mountaineering trip in Scotland is right for you!

We are extremely flexible with these programs, so let us know what works best for you. We can even alter the number of days, depending on your travel plans.

The excitement begins on day one as we meet up and begin going over some of the necessary  rope work as well as other useful skills and techniques.

We'll then head out right away to try out what we've just learned. Depending on weather conditions, reliable learning venues include Stob Coire nan Lochain and Buachaille Etive Beag in Glencoe, Sgorr Dearg above Ballachulish and Beinn a Chaorainn.

As we go on this first climb, we will go over different types of snows as well as how to use ice axes and crampons properly.

The second and third day will be spent going over more safety and decision making lessons as well as making some more ascents of classic winter mountaineering routes, such as East Ridge of Beinn a Chaorainn, Number 4 Gully, CMD Arete and/or Schoolhouse Ridge, among others.

The fourth day is the highlight of the trip. It will see us take on a more challenging winter ascent, such as Aonach Eagach, Sron na Lairig and/or Number 2 Gully, among others.

By the time we part ways, you will have a solid winter mountaineering base of knowledge and be prepared for future treks!

So what are you waiting for? Book now for a challenging yet rewarding 4-day winter mountaineering adventure in the scenic Scottish Highlands!
