Rock climbing around Scotland
This is a client led course. You choose where you want to climb and it will be organised. Within the boundaries of Glen Coe - Cairngorms -Torridon - Isle of Skye anything is possible. Each day a new venue and a new experience. Also, you get to choose the dates which suit you best. The course will only run with two people plus an instructor. The price includes travel and accommodation (self-catering Bunkhouse/Hostel style). Guests provide their own food.
Costs: £700 for five days
Choose your own dates. Courses are normally five days in length.
Note: Rock climbing, especially in the harder grades is very reliant on good weather and dry rock. No guarantee can be given for the weather and alternative climbs at a lower grade may be necessary to ensure that adequate levels of safety are achieved.
