Start of winter.

23rd November 2021

It's great to see fresh snow on the hills and a wintry forecast! We managed to get a day out today, going up the Fiachal Ridge and over Cairn Gorm. The light cloud lifted to give great views and blue skies, a real treat. It's always worth getting a few easy days out at the start of winter and to have a bit of a shake down. Good get the crampons on and feeling the crunch of the snow. Our courses are filling up very quickly this year but there are a few remaining places here and there. Please get in touch if you'd like to join us for some winter skills, winter mountaineering, winter climbing or ski touring training.

Dave was an excellent hiking guide who took us on incredible hikes in the Highlands while ensuring our safety and entertainment. He was considerate of our hiking experience level and adjusted the pace accordingly. Despite hiking over 6 miles and up and down beautiful trails, including reaching the top of a decently sized mountain, we maintained a comfortable and enjoyable pace. Dave was also friendly and accommodating, making the experience even more pleasant. You can hire Dave or one of his team for a reasonable fee and enjoy hiking in the Highlands. Forget staring at your phone or a map. Let Dave or his team lead the way.
