Winter Walking and Skills Courses in Scotland
Highland Ascent has just released our winter programme. A list of winter walks and winter skills courses in the Highlands of Scotland
By: Andreas Heinzl
The 2 Day Winter Skills Course will offer clients the ability to walk in the Scottish in the Winter. You will learn how to walk on snow and ice as well as kicking steps, cutting steps, using your ice axe and crampons. Additionally you will also be able to ice axe arrest.
The 5 Day Winter Skills Course offers the same as the 2 day course but will also equip the clients with navigation skills required in the hills. Since winter navigation is much more difficult than navigation in the summer it will be a skill worth the while learning. The highlight of the course is a 2 day expedition in winter hills with either digging a snow hole or using tents.
Guided walking is also a great option to enjoy the Scottish winter hills. You can walk in the hills with the knowledge that you are safe and sound. Highland Ascent offers either one day or 3 day winter hillwalking in the Cairngorms or Fort William and Ben Nevis area. You can also contact the company for bespoke trips.
