Over 160 hill walking, climbing and mountaineering clubs hold membership of Mountaineering Scotland, with nearly 7,000 club members enjoying the benefits of Mountaineering Scotland membership and supporting the work we do on behalf of hill walkers, climbers and mountaineers in Scotland.
Clubs can offer a brilliant way to meet people who share your passion for the hills, get out and about on club meets and grow your skills and experience. Why not find out if there is one near you?
We offer advice to club organisers and committees to ensure your clubs are as successful, safe and active as possible. We have new clubs and groups joining us each year and are always happy to welcome your club into our community.
We are here to offer clubs a service tailored to their needs, so whether you are looking for risk assessments, legal advice, help with marketing and promotion, hut management or mountain safety training, check out our resources and templates or simply get in touch.
Our club membership year lasts from April to March. Club secretaries can click here to find out how to update their members' details, register new members, pay annual subscriptions and manage duplicate members here.
Club officials can manage their membership easily via our online members portal. Members of Mountaineering Scotland clubs also have their own log-in, enabling them to book on events or courses, update your contact details or communication preferences.
We welcome new club members! If you are part of a hill walking, mountaineering or climbing club, or a walking group which ventures into Scotland's mountains, our affiliate club membership is for you. With a wide range of club-wide advantages and benefits for your members, check out what you are missing and how you can become an affiliated club, quickly and easily.
Are you interested in setting up a new club? We have worked with lots of prospective club organisers to do exactly that and can give you support, advice, templates and publicity. If you are keen on setting up a club focused on young people, our ClimbScotland team is here to help you too.
