Scotland has an enormous amount of rock from the igneous quarries of the Southern lowlands, through the gneiss, granite and schist mountain crags of the central highlands to the sandstone sea cliffs of the far North. This really is a massive climber's playground.
If you have only climbed inside and want to get a taste of 'real' climbing, then we can take you on your first traditional rock climb, teach you to place gear and help you to understand setting up anchors.
Classic Climbs of the Highlands
You may have climbed elsewhere in the UK but been a bit intimidated by the big mountain routes Scotland has to offer. If this is the case then Alpha Mountaineering can take you on an adventure of a life time. We can base ourselves in Fort William and explore the mountains of Glencoe and Lochaber.
Scottish Sea Stacks
Ever since Tom Patey climbed the Old Man of Hoy in 1966 Scotland has been famous for its spectacular sea stacks. Climbing on these isolated pillars of rock is a unique challenge involving a good knowledge of tides and complex rope work.
