Winter Mountaineering

The Best Mountaineering Routes in Scotland

Explore Torridons mountains in stunning winter conditions. Our guided winter mountaineering will take you on journeys through the spectacular Torridon mountains on grade I and II winter terrain. This will normally involve alpine style ridges or classic Scottish gullies.

What to expect

Once we’ve received your enquiry, a guide will be in touch with you to discuss your aims and objectives for the day. A few days beforehand this plan will be firmed up once we’ve checked the weather and avalanche forecasts. On the day itself expect an early start and a full day out on the hill enjoying this beautiful area. Typically you will be on a rope for some portion of this day so that your guide can look after your safety.

Who’s this for?

Our guided winter mountaineering is for anyone who has previously done some winter walking or summer scrambling.


We are based around Gairloch and Torridon. However, we can travel throughout the whole of the North Highlands. Examples of routes we could do locally include; Morrison’s Gully (I) Beinn Eighe, Liathach Pinnacles Traverse (II), Deep South Gully (I) Beinn Alligin
