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

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.

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

As well as getting stuck into a serious amount of admin work Aspect Mountaineering has now moved all equipment into a secure storage facility.

Let the monumental task of logging equipment begin....

I would like to apologise for the lack of social media posts! It has been a hectic season for me.

It is very difficult to balance being in the outdoors with the admin side of things and far to often I ignore the admin side of things in favour of being outside! 🙂

Normal service will resume very shortly, Andy 12th September 2021

Its a rainy sort of day here in Glasgow today...

So it it seems appropriate to share some snaps from a recent family climbing session at Auchinstarry Quarry that went ahead avoiding the forecasted heavy rain. 🙂

The whole family completed climbs ranging from Difficult to Very Severe and finished the day with an abseil down the big slab just before the rain started again! 🙂

Amazing the difference an hour or so can make and a huge thank you to this family for being flexible! 🙂

A few snaps from last nights Introduction to Bouldering at Windyhill Quarry.

This evenings challenge was to climb out of the mini cave from an old school move called backing and footing... 🙂

A fun evening with Aspect regular Kathy and Aspect newbie Trudy.

It has been just over two weeks since my last post. It has been a busy time either out in the mountains of Scotland or working behind the scenes catching up with admin.

This afternoon I enjoyed delivering a rock climbing taster session for Gillian. We did some top-roped climbing to warm up. Followed by seconding a lead climber. 🙂

Its certainly cooler out, autumn is approaching and nice to have fellow TCA Staffer Ruaridh along to shadow, Andy 16th August 2021 🙂
