Scrambling & Mountaineering;

Skills & Development courses


Stunning views, ancient rock and historic routes. These things combined make scrambling the ultimate Scottish mountain experience.

Scrambling, the British name for mountaineering, is all about making easy climbing moves high in the mountains, bringing exposure and commitment to your adventure. It's the middle ground between walking and climbing and provides some of the finest Scottish mountain days imaginable.


The main difference between scrambling and rock climbing is that scrambling draws on a broader range of mountaineering skills to allow you to swiftly, but safely travel through stunning mountain scenery.

We guide on practically all of the classic Scottish scrambling and mountaineering routes and some rare gems too, but also offer a range of skills and development courses, allowing you the opportunity to efficiently and safely learn the skills required to follow someone more experienced, lead your own routes or increase the difficulty of routes you currently climb. All under the watchful eye of a qualified Mountaineering Instructor.


Whatever your objective, EverydayClimbing is here to support you. Look though our popular options below, or contact us to discuss a personalised, tailored experience.
