Mountaineering and Rock Climbing


Scotland's craggy mountains provide a huge variety of mountain sports for those who are inspired by snow, ice and rock. Climbing highlights include Ben Nevis, Glencoe and the Cairngorms, and the coastal sandstone sea stacks around John O'Groats and the Orkney Islands.

Climbing in Scotland changes with the seasons and snow and ice often completely transforms an area as far as climbing goes. Areas that are virtually unclimbable in the summer can often become a magnificent ice-filled playgrounds in the winter.

Whether you are a mountain walker, an ice climber or a rock climber, Scotland has some of the best rock climbing in the UK, in the most spectacular scenery.
