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

Corazon Slater BBC Radio, Children In Need

I started coaching Lexi & Emily in August of 2023, the first session was at Neilston Quarry. They enjoyed it so much they wanted to become rock climbers and go to a different, higher quarry to practice their new skills... 🧗‍♀️👍

Lexi & Emily can now set up their own belay devices, belay for a lead climber and second for a lead climber. Abseiling is their new skill and like most climbers Lexi & Emily now abseil down from routes they have topped out. 🧗‍♀️👍 Which is totally awesome and mega fun❗️

Website and Facebook has been updated with taster sessions over the Easter Holidays❗️

Yass! 👊 A beautifully sunny 🌞 day, an awesome session rock climbing and abseiling 💪🧗‍♂️ at Auchinstarry Quarry with Jenny & John... 😀

Both Jenny and John had only tried indoor climbing once or twice and they both wanted to get a feel for rock climbing. ✅️ The nerves 😬 showed at first, but once the first route was sent and the first abseil was over. ✅️ The nerves settled and they both relaxed and enjoyed the session. ✅️💪🧗‍♂️

We covered the basics of how to second for a lead climber on trad, abseiling with myself backing everything up. ✅️ Both Jenny & John topped-out Access Route Diff***, Anarchist VD and Tar S. ✅️ A good haul of routes and finished off with a well earned ice cream 🍦! ✅️💪🧗‍♂️😀

Going back to May again and a quick hit 👊 at one of my favourite crags in the Central Belt region of Scotland, Limekilns with returning client Ellis Evans. 🧗‍♂️😀

These limestone blocks are set in pleasant woodland and provide some excellent climbing on superb rock. ✅️ The aim of this session was to get Ellis seconding on harder routes, and to take Ellis through the skills required to abseil safely. ✅️ Abseiling is often the safest way to descend from Limekilns. ✅️🧗‍♂️😀

We bagged a good haul of routes before the afternoon monsoon ⛈️ came on, including: Red Flag VS 4c*, Two Ringer VS 4c, One Ringer VS 4c, White Ensign VS 4c** and finished with DT's VS 4c**. 👊 Awesome climbing! 💪🧗‍♂️😀✅️
