Rock Climbing in Scotland

Rock Climbing in Scotland

Rock Climbing in Scotland Overview

Scotland offers endless quantities of some of the best rock climbing in the UK, from huge mountain crags to the famous sea-stacks such as the Old Man of Hoy and Stoer. The logistics of rock climbing in Scotland can be more difficult than elsewhere in the country due to some of the remote and wild locations that these climbs are situated. However, we feel that the rewards are well worth the effort, and we aim to help you with all of this. If you are interested in arranging a day, or a few days guided rock climbing in Scotland please get in touch.

Do I need any previous experience?

Some previous multi-pitch climbing experience is desirable to get the most out of rock climbing in Scotland, but it’s not essential. Maybe you have a particular climb on your ‘bucket list’ that you’ve always wanted to do? Or, perhaps you are just curious to explore some of the great crags Scotland has to offer? We will advise you on the level of ability required to tackle some of the countries greatest climbs and can offer training and coaching to help you get there. We strive to offer flexible, tailored instruction specific to your goals.

How many can participate?

Guided Rock Climbing works well on a 1:1 or 1:2 basis (instructor to participant) and can be booked from one day to a week in duration.

How much will it cost?

Our pricing structure is based on a sliding scale with a reduced daily fee for every additional day booked. If you would like to reserve a contingency day around your preferred date/s in order to pick the best weather and conditions for your course or activity we may be able to arrange this for an additional fee. For more details, please see our pricing structure.

How to book?

Please get in touch using the enquiry form on this page and we’ll get back to you with all of the details and a booking form for you to complete. We require a 30% deposit to secure bookings and full payment prior to your course or activity commencing. If you would like any more information or have a specific question, please use the contact form in the menu at the top of the page.

What do I need to bring with me?

We will provide all of the technical climbing equipment, including a helmet and harness if required. If you have any of your own equipment that you would like to use, we will encourage you to use it as long as it’s suitable. It’s always good to use your own equipment as it will be familiar to you, and will help you to feel more comfortable. However, you will need to provide some personal items including a rucksack, waterproofs, suitable footwear, and a packed lunch.
