Mountaineering Scotland Awards - nominate your heroes

Each year we want to recognise those inspirational people who are an example to us all, whether through their own performance and achievements, or through their services to the world of mountaineering and climbing. 


There are two trophies - beautiful glass sculptures created by acclaimed artist Emma Butler Cole Aitken - and we look to our members to help ensure they reach and recognise worthy recipients.

The Mountaineering Scotland Volunteer of the Year Award recognises those who make a significant voluntary contribution to Scottish mountaineering through Mountaineering Scotland, our clubs, groups, huts, training programmes, competitions, campaigning work or other relevant activity areas.

We want to give a well-deserved ‘thank you’ to those who offer their time, experience and skills for the benefit of their fellow hill walkers, climbers or mountaineers, or for the mountain landscapes we all cherish. 

This may have been over many years, or, simply outstanding dedication that has made a real difference and is valued by others.

ClimbScotland Young Climber of the Year Award recognises participation and personal achievement among our younger members (under 25s) in climbing, one of Scotland’s fastest growing sports.

We are looking for a young person whose talent, enthusiasm and commitment to climbing inspires other young people to start or progress with their own climbing. 

This might be through competition climbing, coaching, club activities or other exciting endeavours.
