Ok, surely enough is enough? 

It's been an amazing winter but with temperatures reaching high teens in the glens today, it's time to say goodbye to winter and hello to summer.

Over the last few weeks we've continued to have teams out walking, ski touring and winter climbing (even this week!). We've also had a couple of rock climbing teams out too, at Kingussie Crag and at Logiehead on the Moray Coast.

Keeping is busy for the last few weeks has been work for Mountain and Water Safety Specialists on a large feature film being shot in various locations around Scotland that required lots of mountaineering and moving water safety.

For the keen beans amongst us there are still winter adventures to be had. For us, it's time to enjoy an endless summer.....

Check out our great range of winter skills, ski touring and winter climbing courses.

Winter courses

Just finished a fantastic intro to ski touring 2 day course with our very knowledgeable instructor Malcolm. There were 6 of us on the course (not inc Malcolm) and all completely new to ski touring and varying levels of ski experience. Malcolm adapted the course when required to suit all and took our course at a speed that was comfortable for everyone. The result being that we all had a fantastic time. The weather took a drastic turn for the worse with the heavy snow on the 2nd day and safety was put first cutting our time on the slope short. However we were probably all quite glad as we were definitely feeling the physical demands ski touring puts on your body by then lol. All in all, a well organised and thoroughly enjoyable course. We'd definitely recommend and would look at trying out the other courses on offer in the future. Thanks to the team, Barry, Ellie, Ant, Peter, our excellent guide Malcolm and event organiser Liam for a brilliant 2 days. Scott and I are properly knackered but loved sharing this experience with you all.Just finished a fantastic intro to ski touring 2 day course with our very knowledgeable instructor Malcolm.
