About the Event

On this 2 day course, we will head out into the hills of Skye! Each day, we will return to the valley to give you a chance to rest and relax before another day out the following day!

No prior mountaineering experience is necerssary.  

This course is suitable for all experience levels, though it will be very useful to already have a level of hill fitness that 2 days walking does not sound like a big hardship for you.

Meeting place: We will meet at 9am at the Mountain Rescue post next to the Sligachan Hotel on Day 1 

Over the course, we will:

- Spend 2 days Mountaineering on the hills of Skye

- Learn how to take Chest Coils with the rope

- Look at Guide Books, Route finding and route following - so you can go yourselves after the course!

- Personal movement and skills

- How to move fast and light over tecnhical terrain

- 3 days guided mountaineering, learning along the way so that you have more independence in the future!

If you have something you would particularly like to do (like the Inn Pin etc) let me know and we will try to work it into the days!

n.b Each course is personalised to what you would like to do!

Food and accommodation are not included in the course fee. Get in touch if you would like help or advice with either of these.
