What we offer

All our instructors are qualified and very experienced at leading people in Scotlands' winter mountains.

Our instructors are very knowledgeable about the Scottish mountain environment, so the day can be easily split up with interesting chats, demonstrations and great views along the way.

We pick the best route options based upon the snow and weather conditions.

We only offer private guiding on these winter mountain days to give you exactly what you want.

We can supply ice axe and crampons for small groups.


By handing over the organisation, safety, navigation and route choice to a professional instructor means that you can focus more on your enjoyment without the stress of making the right decisions. It is also a great opportunity to ask questions, get advice, increase your mountain knowledge and practice any winter skills along the way.


Having a private guide is great for those who want to be flexible with how long to spend in the mountains and maybe looking for top tips and advice along the way.
