The west of Scotland is home to some of the very best scrambling on offer, and lots of it! Glencoe and Lochaber offer the ideal training ground: with several iconic mountains and scrambles that should be on anyone’s “must do” list. We will aim to include some of the more famous lines and focus on progressing your confidence and ability in an authentic and challenging environment. Whilst the course is not peak-bagging-focussed, expect to summit at least a couple of Munros and Corbetts within the course.
Iconic peaks and classic scrambles
Superb selection and variety of routes available
Day 1: Ascend a classic scramble to an iconic peak (such as Curved Ridge on Buchaille Etive Mor) and feel the satisfaction of climbing a mountain by the most aesthetic route
Day 2: Traverse a mighty ridgeline (such as the Aonach Eagach) and take in multiple Munros!
Day 3: Get royally bitten by the scrambling bug, venture off the beaten track and tackle some of the lesser known gems of this wonderful and inspiring region
