Mountain leading and guiding


We love the mountains of Scotland and want to share our passion to explore them with you ! Let us take you on weekend hillwalks, technical mountain scrambles, navigation courses, and all-inclusive packages to beautiful remote corners of the country. Check out our calendar of events to find out what we have coming up !

In addition to our calendar of planned events, we can tailor a bespoke mountain adventure specifically to meet your requirements. Whether you're after a leisurely day hiking up hills, a long back-packing or biking trip into remote wilderness, rock-scrambling along crests or climbing up famed pinnacles, we can organise your guiding. With our friendly and experienced leaders, we like to keep our guide to client ratios small, giving you that personal experience.

We can also plan your accommodation, help out with travel arrangements and sort out any gear you might need to borrow or hire.

Listed below are a few examples of types of trips we can put together for you. If there's something else you'd like help with and it's not shown below, contact us and we'll do our best to help out !


Hiking days on Scotland's mountains

On Lochnagar We know our country's mountainous areas inside-out and can recommend what would type of trip would suit. Perhaps you're after a hike up Ben Nevis, a day exploring Glencoe's 'Lost Valley', a weekend discovering Assynt's weird geology or a few leisurely paced days into Affric - we can organise these and more for you !

You'll need a reasonable level of fitness, otherwise no previous experience is needed.

Cost per day : £250, group size up to 6 people.


Back-packing into remote wilderness

In the Alder wilderness Scotland has vast wilderness areas containing remote and rugged peaks requiring effort and planning to reach. All the effort needed to get into these landscapes is rewarded with inspiring views that few people get the chance to encounter.

In addition to guiding, we can plan your trip and help with accommodation prior to and after the event. We can advise on back-packing gear needed and hire out any equipment required. Some of the wildernesses can be accessed using mountain-bikes.

We ask that people have done at least a few hillwalks and have a decent level of fitness.

Cost per day : £250, group size up to 6 people.


Rock-scrambling on ridges

On the Forcan Ridge Scotland has a plethora of stunning ridges to scramble along ! From the quartzite topped giants of Torridon to the intimidating buttresses on Ben Nevis and the narrow spine of crags on the Aonach Eagach to the rough gabbro that make Skye's infamous Black Cuillin, these are just a few examples of the choice on offer.

Whether you're after one day or a week, we can put together an unforgettable trip on some of the greatest rock-scrambling in the country.

You'll have done at least a few hillwalks, have a good general level of fitness and comfortable scrambling ! Check out this page for scrambling grades and more info.

Cost per day : £250, group size up to 4 people.


Skills improver events

Bespoke winter skills day in Cairngorms Whether you're after the skills needed for winter hillwalking, sorting out your map and compass, preparing for that hill-walking qualification or just some confidence building enabling you to head out on the hills alone, we can put a day or two together to grow your expertise.

Experience required will be appropriate to the type of event you'd like us to organise.

Cost : dependent on event type, duration and group size. See the above events types as a general guide to costs.
