As a member of a club affiliated to Mountaineering Scotland you are eligible for all the same courses and events available to individual members. In addition we organise events which are solely available through your club membership.
These courses and events are available to all Mountaineering Scotland members, whether individual members or through clubs, and include a wide range of skills courses - navigation, hill skills, winter safety and more - as well as a variety of climbing competitions and one-of events.
Clubs can arrange training or advice on any aspect of mountain skills and safety with our Mountain Safety Adviser, Ian Stewart. Ian is available to provide advice and assistance to all club members or smaller groups off the hill as well as formal training during your club meet. This might include navigation, summer/winter mountain skills, scrambling, walk leader training or climbing and is tailored to the needs and level of the group.
This training is available to affiliated clubs at a reduced cost of just £100 per day. If you would like to take advantage of this training opportunity please contact Ian directly at firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss your requirements.
Mountaineering Scotland, in partnership with the Association of Mountaineering Instructors (AMI), offers climbing instructor support to our affiliated clubs throughout Scotland.
Sessions will aim to provide an introduction to outdoor Trad climbing, including correct fitting and use of equipment including harnesses, tying in and belaying, use of guidebooks and route selections, building safe anchors and coaching of climbing movement.
