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.....

Winter courses

Fantastic value for money, excellent course I did a Winter Skills two-day weekend course in early February 2019. It was excellent, very well organised and super value for money. There were 4 of us on the course with one instructor so we got very specific and personalised feedback throughout. We covered all of the key skills, including navigation techniques, ice axe arrests, walking in different types and gradients of snow, using crampons, identifying snow conditions and potential dangers. Laurie was a great guide, very patient, extremely knowledgeable and experienced. The course included an hour of 'classroom' learning before we got into the mountains and minibus transfer to and from the mountains each day. I feel confident about going into the mountains in winter now, fully equipped with the necessary skills and wouldn't hesitate to recommend the course and Cairngorm Adventure Guides.
