Winter mountain safety lecture tour 2017

Mountaineering Scotland has teamed up with Cotswold Outdoor, Tiso, The Mountain Cafe, Aviemore, Scottish Walks magazine and The Munro Society to offer you a fascinating insight into Scotland's mountains in winter and some essential safety advice for heading into the hills at this time of year.

In these free lectures, sponsored by the Herald & Times Group, publishers of Scottish Walks magazine, Heather Morning, our Mountain Safety Advisor will share her beautiful photography, videos, personal anecdotes and adventures, while equipping you with some essential skills for winter navigation, avalanche awareness, route choice, equipment, mountain weather and much more. 

With a lifetime's experience in the mountains, Heather has been a professional mountaineer for 25 years and for 16 years was a member of the Cairngorm Mountain Rescue Team.
