Associate membership

Associate membership of Mountaineering Scotland is ideal for any business, organisation or association that has an interest in Scotland's mountains or mountain lovers, be they hillwalkers, climbers, ski-tourers or armchair enthusiasts. 

In return for supporting Mountaineering Scotland's work, you receive a package of benefits that can more than pay for the associate membership price.

Our associate members make a vital contribution to our cause through an annual subscription of £80 and receive a package of benefits which can be tailored to your organisation's needs. 

We provide a certificate thanking you for your support, which you can display to staff or customers, showing your support for Mountaineering Scotland in your workplace or shop. We can also provide you with other literature to distribute to you and your employees or clients.

We will automatically link to your business or organisation's website, and will be pleased to feature your news, events and activities in the appropriate sections of our website, Facebook and Twitter channels and monthly members email newsletter. 

You and your colleagues will get almost a third off our full individual membership price, with our concession rate of just £23.50 per year. This is a great way to show you value a hardworking team - whether you choose to buy them individual membership as an employee perk, or just give them the opportunity to buy it themselves at the discounted rate. 

Membership gives your staff access to a wide range of discounts on outdoors retail, accommodation and other services, plus our magazine and our range of low-cost, subsidised mountain safety courses and climbing coaching workshops. It can also be an invaluable tool in up-skilling your team and keeping them up to date on Scottish mountain matters.

  • Our award-winning members magazine, Scottish Mountaineer, is Scotlandís leading, quarterly mountaineering magazine with a circulation of over 15,000 copies and an estimated wider readership of 50,000 people. 

  • Associate members qualify for a massive 33% discount off advertising in the magazine and receive a complementary copy of the magazine each quarter. 

  • To take advantage of the special advertising rates simply contact Dali Dahmane at Newsquest on 0141 302 7759 and quote your Associate member number.
