How the Coronavirus affects our events and your booking with us

Last updated on 22 March. This information will be updated as UK Government advice is revised.

Latest information

The UK Government has updated their guidelines regarding Coronavirus, see this.

We are following the UK Government guidelines and taking advice from the Mountaineering Council of Scotland, British Mountaineering Club and The Scottish Government websites.

The current situation with our events up to the end of June :
  • Events in March and April
    You may be aware that people have been urged to stop travelling to the Highlands in a bid to avoid the coronavirus. With this in mind, all our events for March and April are have been cancelled. We will contact people affected and offer priority booking on other events later in the year or a refund.

  • Rock-scrambling and climbing events
    Events up to the end of June with Grade 2 or 3 scrambling or climbing have been cancelled. These events have unavoidable close-contact and include the Aonach Eagach traverse, Curved Ridge on Etive Mor and Tower Ridge on Ben Nevis. We will contact people affected and offer priority booking on other events later in the year or a refund.

  • Navigation Skills in Pentlands
    The navigation skills events up to the end of June are cancelled. This is due to there being a 3-hour 'classroom' part on the course which is held indoors. We hope to re-start the navigation events in July.

  • Bespoke events
    As travel to the UK from many countries has effectively stopped, all bespoke events booked by overseas clients are cancelled until the end of June.

  • Other events in May and June
    These are currently on hold and we're not taking any further bookings on these events at the moment. We'll review and revise the situation as more information becomes available from the UK and Scottish governments.

Regardless of reason, if we cancel an event that you are currently booked on, we will refund in full. Our booking terms are stated here.

If you have any concerns about your booking, or related transport or accommodation issues, please do get in touch and we'll try our best to help.
