I generally don't schedule summer "courses" in rock climbing, etc., but just work with small groups, families, etc., with specific requirements. This can be anywhere in Scotland or the Lake District. Have a look at my Go Climbing Now page for more details.
Winter Skills, Ski-Mountaineering & Splitboarding Courses 2022
Update on Winter Courses..... With the current situation I was not able to run winter courses in the Highlands earlier this year. However I'm hoping to put on the usual selection in winter 2021-22, plus some new splitboarding courses. The schedule will be updated in October 2021. In the meantime I am available for instruction or private guiding of summer mountain activities.
Our 2020 calendar of courses remains below to give you an idea of what we may offer in 2022. This includes prices from 2020, which may regrettably go up. These courses were organized, run, and taught by John or Linda Biggar, and were mostly based in the Cairngorms in the Scottish Highlands.
We can also do bespoke courses mid-week if you have a group of people interested.
