Mountaineering Scotland is a not for profit membership organisation and the voice of Scotland's hillwalkers, climbers, mountaineers and ski tourers. 

We campaign on behalf of our members to protect our mountain landscapes and access rights, and promote safe access to hills, climbing walls and crags. We work closely with  partner organisations and climbing walls to encourage more people to take up climbing, hill walking and ski touring for enjoyment, health and wellbeing.

Membership of Mountaineering Scotland offers excellent value at less than 3 a month for adults, and includes public and civil liability insurance, a range of member discounts and offers, access to great value mountain skills courses, quarterly Scottish Mountaineer magazine and more!
