Scrambling opens a vast array of possibilities in the UK from the lakeland scrambles to the famous Cuillin Ridge on the Isle of Skye. We offer a range of courses enabling you to make the move from walking to scrambling. Our courses are set in the Scottish Highlands with a particular interest in the wild Northwest Highlands on iconic ridge traverses like Liatach, An Teallach and the Horns of Alligin

We also operate on Ben Nevis with its classic four ridges, NE buttress,
