Summer in the Cairngorms #rockclimbing #mountainbiking #mountaineering #wildswimming

11th June 2018

A sure sign of how good a summer's been is how often you're swimming in rivers. This summer so far we've been in and out of rivers constantly and it's been excellent.

In amongst cooling off we've had climbing and mountaineering teams out as well as getting lots of personal mountain biking done.

As with most summers, a lot of time is spent on film sets looking after crews who are working in dangerous locations for Mountain and Water Safety Specialists

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.
