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.

Finally back on the rock! 🙂

It was great to once again be working with a group! This bunch of super enthusiastic restaurant workers all from Renfrew enjoyed Good Friday challenging themselves by trying something new, rock climbing! 🙂

I would like to give the entire group a huge thank you. 🙂 It has been a challenging year for all of us and you guys have been so patient whilst waiting for the guidance to change so this introductory rock climbing session could go ahead. Thank you! 🙂 I look forward to working with you in the future! 🙂

Thank you for sharing the photographs! Andy 5th April 2021

Aspect Mountaineering

Today has been one of those days where I've been stuck indoors listening to the wind and rain lashing at my window.

So I thought I would share some images of one my favourite urban walks within the City of Glasgow. A walk I have completed many times and will continue to enjoy until travel restrictions ease towards the end of April.

This is a circular 18.5k walk starting at the Botanic Gardens, taking the Kelvin Walkway to Maryhill Lochs. The Forth & Clyde Canal into the heart of Glasgow followed by stroll a long the Clyde into Kelvingrove Park and returning to the Botanic Gardens via the Kelvin Walkway.

Enjoy the pictures, there is lots to see and do, Andy 29th March 2021
