Welcome to West Coast Mountain Guides

Bruce Poll

For the last 25 years West Coast Mountain Guides has helped people interested in visiting mountain regions do so with both confidence and enjoyment. Providing quality advice, instruction and guiding with sensible and friendly encouragement our approach means everyone can extend their horizons and develop their individual skills. From a UK introductory climbing course and then tackling Alpine peaks, onto to the North Face of the Eiger and the 8000m peaks around the world, we are there.

Our programmes take place across Britain and Europe throughout the year and covers all mountaineering activities from Hill Walking and Scrambling to summer and winter Climbing and Alpinism. Scottish winter experience stands alone for many but is also an ideal first step for those who wish to challenge themselves on Alpine peaks and opportunities to explore Skye are also on offer. We are working on developing a programme of ski touring and off-piste ski courses for 2014 to provide for those who prefer the exhilaration of a faster descent  and/or journeying through the mountains on ski.

Whether you’re a novice or an expert we cater for all levels of ability and offer programmes ranging from a single day to a two week alpine holiday. Many of West Coast Mountain Guides clients return for more and our small group numbers ensure we provide the maximum benefit.

Whatever your ambition, whether it’s reaching the summit of Ben Nevis, Britain’s highest mountain, via the path or a Grade VI+ winter climb, scrambling over the Aonach Eagach, taking on the Inaccessible Pinnacle, climbing Mont Blanc , climbing the North Face of the Matterhorn  or skiing across the Alps our flexible approach aims to meet your requirements. If you can’t see the activity or dates you are interested in appear please ask. Wherever you are looking for adventures if there are mountains or cliffs, we can be there!
