Scrambling

Scrambling lies somewhere between hill walking and climbing, you’ll need to get your hands dirty in order to stay safe and make upward progression. However, other than a sure foot and a head for heights there is nothing to stop you taking part in a truly breath-taking and exhilarating experience. Scrambling can take you off the beaten track in no time at-all to the wildest of situations with some of the best views on offer in the mountains.

Navigation

Aspect Mountaineering is pleased to be able to offer you courses certified by the National Navigation Award Scheme. The overall aim of the courses are simple – to give lovers of the outdoors, whatever their sport, age or fitness, the freedom to explore the paths, trails, hills and mountains of Britain and abroad. Gaining an award does not give you a qualification to teach or lead. It is a recognition of the level of skill at which you can navigate.

Hill Walking

Hill walking in all its guises is to be enjoyed and cherished. Rugged Mountain tops with rocky, knife edge ridges, rolling hills with panoramic vistas, cliff top coastal paths with views across the ocean to gentle strolls through high mountain glens full of flowers and fauna. We love it all here at Aspect Mountaineering and are happy to offer wide and varied routes to be enjoyed by all. John Muir put it best when he said: “In every walk with nature one receives far more than he seeks.”

What our clients say

A huge thank you to Andy for taking us safely to the top of Ben Nevis and bringing us back down again during our Moonlight hike with Macmillan cancer support. What an amazing guy with a huge knowledge of his surroundings. Would highly recommend Andy to anyone who is looking for support or a guide around any of our beautiful mountains x

June Williams Kent Foods, Macmillan midnight walk on Ben Nevis

Had a fabulous trek up Ben Nevis with Andrew, we were a bunch of novices, but with help and guidance we made it!! A beautiful sunny day helped, Andrew had so much knowledge on all the views an awesome day – thank you.

Ali Richards Private guided day on Ben Nevis

Thanks again to Andy for all the help on the Yorkshire 3 Peaks challenge. He was professional, patient and good fun and really added to the day. I would definitely ask Andy to guide us on any future trips.

Paul Robinson Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge

Andrew was a wonderful guide! Transported us to the start and motivated us to the top of Ben Nevis. He made this a truly great adventure! Highly recommend.

Sam Wilmott Private guided day on Ben Nevis

Andrew was an absolute gentleman! A great guide with lots of knowledge and a chipper attitude who kept motivating us to keep putting one foot in front of the other. He made us feel safe and gave me his coat at the top of Ben Nevis!!! Thank you for a great and challenging experience

The Fannaichs is one of my favourite mountaim ranges within Scotland to guide on. And for some reason every season I seem to get the weather and the views! 😀 This season's trip was no exception. 😀
This is day 1 of a guided trip I did with members of the Scottish Women's Walking Group. We took in the summits of Meall a' Chrasgaidh, Sgurr nan Clach Geala, Sgurr nan Each, Sgirr Breac and finished with A' Chailleach.
The Ladiee set a steady pace, making the most of the day and taking every opportunity to tak photographs and enjoy the views. 😀 A huge well done to all those that came along and made it such a special day! 😀
Dates for next year are live on the website, link in bio! 👍🏻⬆️😀

Yass! Climbing! 🙂 Back to Rosyth Quarry today with Fiona, Maria and son Aaron. All Aspect newbies! 🙂

It was a nice relaxed session today, making the most of the autumn sunshine. Fiona has tried indoor climbing and just wanted to get a taste of outdoor climbing. First time climbing for Maria and Maria's son Aaron is a regular at Ratho climbing wall in Edinburgh. 🙂

Today we went through the basics, a little refresher on belaying and our stance whilst belaying and being aware of our surroundings whilst belaying. Cementing the importance of buddy checks and clear communication between climber and belayer. It was busy in Rosyth Quarry today and something that is quite often overlooked is clear communications. 🙂

Another thoroughly enjoyable session with good company. With Fiona, Maria and Aaron all completing routes ranging from Moderate right through to Severe. 🙂

A huge well done to all, including Mary. Who has recently been brave enough to complete her RCI training and is now getting stuck in with shadowing sessions during her consolidation period! Keep up the hard work, it will pay off at assessment! 🙂

Andy, 16th October 2022

The Ring of Steall is one of my favourite routes to guide and it was great to welcome back returning clients Margaret & Catherine and Aspect newbie Bernadette. 🙂

It was a cool day, just right for walking with mixed views. The mist rolled in and out for the duration of the day giving the high tops a mystical feeling. We stayed dry until it was time to descend, thankfully the shower passed and we dried out by the time we returned to the cars.

Another really enjoyable day on the hill with great company. A huge well done to Margaret, Catherine and Bernadette, Ring of Steall completed! 🙂

We still have spaces available, 3rd June 2023 www.aspectmountaineering.com for further information! 🙂

This season has been an absolute blast, these photographs are from my third and final guided ascent of Ben Nevis via the CMD Arete with Anne and Eleni. 🙂

It was another stunning day with mixed views, the mist rolled in and out for the duration of the day. Giving Ben Nevis a mysterious and magical ambience. 🙂

It was quiet on the Arete, we pretty much had it to ourselves. The summit of Ben Nevis as usual was busy, lots of folk up there celebrating their success. Bumped into Rich & Mark two fellow guides, always nice to have a little catch up. 🙂

A huge well done to Anne, who was raising funds for the British Heart Foundation and to Eleni for both making successful ascents of Ben Nevis via the CMD Arete. 🙂
