Professional mountain training and guiding in the Scottish Highlands
Developing our clients’ core mountain skills is one of our passions at Highland Ascents. We pride ourselves in delivering quality, tailored instruction and training across several mountain disciplines.
Whether you are new to the mountain environment and want to develop the core skills needed to make your mountain walks more enjoyable and safer, whether you are an experienced walker looking to take their navigation to an advanced level and get off the beaten track, or whether you want to spend more time in the mountains in winter conditions, walking, climbing and mountaineering – we have something for you.
We provide one day and two day bespoke navigation courses, though to multi-day Advanced Mountain Skills courses which teach skills such as how to operate on steeper ground, how to navigate at night and in poor visibility, how to camp wild and how to deal with unforeseen challenges such as crossing rivers or dealing with emergencies.
We also provide rock climbing courses for beginners or for those wanting to develop their skills on the ‘sharp end’ by learning to lead traditional rock climbs.
If you are preparing for one of your NGB Mountain Training Awards, then we can also help you be 100% ready for assessment – we provide Mountain Leader (Summer) Refreshers and also Single Pitch Award (SPA) Refreshers for those wanting to hone their skills.
