9th January 2017

The weather forecast is now looking wintry, which is great to see and a bit of a relief! We've had really wintry spells followed by warm weather which has stripped almost all the snow away. Nonethelss we've still managed to use good locations to deliver lots of great training. Here are some photos from winter skills, a winter walking week duo, two climbing teams, a winter mountaineering trio and some navigation training teams who've been out with us so far.

As always, these courses are only a success becuase of the skill and experience of the excellent mountain folks who work for Cairngorm Adventure Guides!

A must do if visiting Aviemore My wife and i wanted to hike up' 'Ben Macdui' Scotlands second highest mountain. We contacted 'Cairngorm adventure guides' who were brilliant, easy to deal with, professional and promt. Our guide Emma didn't just get us to the summit but gave us lot's of local information on the area, and on hiking in the mountains in general. The walk is a couple of hours (we're 58 & 60 years old) with a few stops to take in the the stunning scenery and take photo's. As well as being constantly informative, Emma was also professional and considerate, offering us options for various descents, given the weather conditions and time. The weather changed, as would be expected, in the Scottish highlands, constantly, this only enhanced the overall experience and satisfaction of completing the hike. All in all, if you're looking for a memorable experience in the Scottish highlands, DO THIS!
