Tak It Hame is the campaign that says what it means: encouraging the mountaineering community, and others, to remove litter and plastic from our hills and crags.
Tak It Hame aims to make a difference.
We encourage everyone taking to the hills and climbing the crags to do a little on every trip, individually, or as part of a group or club outing. And to show others too: tell the world that we can all do something. Many of us already do, but the litter still accumulates. We need more people to do the same.
The message is: can you bring back more than you took out?
So what can we, every one of us, do?
*Please donít pick up dog or human waste, broken glass or needles.
Join us to kick off #TakItHame at two events at Craigallachie and Conic Hill with Mountaineering Scotland Access & Conservation Officer Davie Black, who will explain some key aspects of mountain ecology and conservation on a walk while we pick any litter we find along the way.

Want your club to get involved? You can either organise your own litter-picks or get involved in ones that are already organised. Contact us for tips and hints for kit to take and risk assessment.
There are a number of existing initiatives encouraging voluntary action to collect litter from the environment, alongside the activities of local authorities, to reach into the places that litter collects. Look out for local litter-picks here.
