The Mountaineering Scotland Board of Directors has established advisory groups to help inform strategy development and contribute to important areas of operational activity.
Members are drawn both from the Mountaineering Scotland membership and others with relevant expertise. We are grateful for the time, dedication, knowledge and support of all those who take part in our advisory groups, whose remit are shown below:
The purpose of this group is to monitor and review mountain safety strategy and collaborate with partners on mountain safety issues in Scotland.
The purpose of this group is to identify and oversee processes to make the organisation compliant with good corporate governance on sustainability in response to the climate crisis, to influence reduction in carbon emissions and protect wild land, and integrate this as a core activity into the review of Respecting Scotland’s Mountains, and the next Strategic Plan.

Chair – Ron Neville, Director for Access & Conservation.
The purpose of this group is to monitor Mountaineering Scotland income and expenditure and report to the Board quarterly; audit expenditure in light of strategic aims and objectives; review and modify financial risk management; recommend the budget; review banking and other procedures to ensure good practice and value for money; and review and update financial procedures.
The purpose of this group is to oversee the development and implementation of our Equality Action Plan, with the aim of making Mountaineering Scotland a welcoming and inclusive membership organisation, reaching out to audiences who are currently under-represented in both the hills and our membership. It seeks to understand and overcome obstacles to participation and identify partners to help us us achieve our goals.
