Winter Climbing and Mountaineering in the Scottish Highlands

Winter. The pleasant rolling green Highlands are transformed into an arctic wilderness.

When the sun shines it can feel like a wonderful snow and ice playground designed for climbers.  When the wild westerlies whip up the snows off the Atlantic it can feel like an act of survival just getting off the hill.

The Highland winter is not for the faint hearted but for those with sufficient dedication the rewards are immense.

Days out on Scotland’s winter mountains can be tough and adventurous experiences but the rosy cheeked glow over a pint or dram in a steaming Highland inn will more than compensate.

The satisfaction of a big route in the Highlands can last long after the snows have disappeared.
