Winter returns to the Cairngorms (phew!) #winterskills #cairngorms

5th February 2017

After what has been a fairly warm and not that snowy January, it's good to see winter taking a hold of the mountains again. This weekend the temperature has really come down and we've had lots of fresh snowfall. The forecast this week coming is looking cold and snowy too!

We made the most of the dry (sometimes wet) and warm conditions of January, delivering lots of excellent walking, climbing and mountaineering courses. We had to reschedule and cancel a number of ski touirng courses unfortunately. It's times like these we're grateful for having experienced guides with extensive local knowledge.

Here are some photos of the last week or so. Regular photos are posted on our Facebook page.

Winter courses

I completed a 4 day winter skills course with Cairngorm Adventure Guides in February. Ross was a great guide and leader and really knowledgeable. Learned so much but was particularly happy that after the 4 days, after years of just not 'getting it' navigating using a compass finally made sense to me. Would absolutely recommend to anyone interested in winter walking.
