In the Western Highlands.


Scotland provides the most remote climbing in the UK. There are a number of good small crags and sea cliffs, but you will be rewarded if you take the time to venture into some of the more remote climbing areas in the Highlands.

The individual areas are broken up into the same basic areas that the Scottish Mountaineering Councils (SMC) guide book series.

Getting There 

Fly to Edinburgh or Glasgow, or drive up the A1, or M6 from England.

On the summit of Ben Hope Scotlands most northern mountain over 3000'(Known as a Monroe)There are about 250 mountains in Scotland over 3000'.
