Mountain skills & scrambling courses

Scrambling courses

Skye ridge guiding and scrambling here in Scotland is superb. We have some amazing mountains to scramble and learn on.

Getting to the top by a challenging and interesting route. Moving fluently and quickly and getting off the beaten path. Just some of the attractions of scrambling up Scottish mountains. Scrambling is that area between walking and climbing and is what you make it, depending on how adventurous you are. (We certainly are!)

Our scrambling courses are based here, with Glencoe and Ben Nevis on our doorstep, we have some of the best mountain scrambles routes in the country. Our aim is to give you some fantastic days out and our scrambling courses teach you the skills to scramble safely and competently.

We will teach you anchor and belay selection, belaying and stance management, ropework and runner placement and moving confidently on steep ground during your scrambling course.

We run private coaching and guiding days, three day courses and also a week on Ben nevis staying in the CIC hut. Prices are based on

1 person / £200 per day

2 people / £220 per day

3 or more / £240 per day

We wil only work at a maximum ratio of 1:4 people on scrambling courses.

Navigation courses

Mountain navigation is fundamental to safety in the mountains. More accidents are caused by navigation mistakes than any other cause. Mountain Motion can improve your navigation skills and teach you how to move safely through the mountains. We will look at your current experience and skills level and develop this so you become more self reliant and competent in the Mountains.

During 2015 we will be available to run bespoke navigation courses. These will be tailored to individuals and small groups. As part of these courses, we will cover route planning, what to carry in the mountains, emergency procedures and night navigation and how to get the most from your day on the hill.

Instruction and coaching costs are based on £180 - £240 per day, per guide who can take up to six people.


It's important to know that whenever you pay for professional mountaineering services the person you get is qualified, experienced and insured to the best nationally recognised standard. If you want free advice drop Mountain Motion a line.
