Our Scrambling Experiences

Scrambling, the middle ground between walking and climbing, provides some of the finest Scottish mountain days imaginable.

It’s essentially easy rock climbing, but draws on a broad range of mountaineering skills to safely travel through stunning mountain scenery.

 

Are you considering the classic traverse of Liathach in Torridon or trying some secluded scrambling in Cairngorms National Park?

Are you are ready to experience scrambling the iconic mountaineering lines of Ledge Route, Castle Ridge or Tower Ridge on Ben Nevis? 

 

Or perhaps you have an entirely different, specific route in mind?

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

 

We guide on practically all of the most iconic Scottish scrambling and mountaineering routes, but wild and remote scrambling journeys are what really excite us. Below you can find details of some truly special, short expeditions into the Scottish wilderness.

Climbing routes in remote Corries and on distant cliff faces, these trips provide the ultimate immersive experiences, each one steeped in mountaineering history.
