Mountaineering is a step up in seriousness from hill walking, and it's important that your clothing and equipment keep pace with that change.
You will already have much of the clothes and kit, but it is recommended that you wear or carry the following items to deal safely with Scotland’s mountains in winter.
In addition you may consider a snow shovel and a helmet.
And don’t forget, it is no use having all the kit if you have no idea how to use it! If you are planning on venturing into the winter hills for the first time why not treat yourself to one of our winter skills courses?
