Scottish Climbing Conditions Blog

Welcome to the West Coast Mountain Guides diary and conditions page, which is updated regularly throughout the year.  During the winter, there will be plenty of up-to-date information and reports regarding the latest mixed and ice climbing and mountaineering conditions in the Scottish Highlands, and in particular, on Ben Nevis, Aonach Mor and in Glencoe.  We’ll also be posting accounts of our latest trips, both work and play.

If you have any up-to-date conditions reports and photos that we can include in our blog, please drop us an email:
