The term scrambling is normally used to describe travel which is too exciting to be just hill walking, but not difficult enough to be genuine rock climbing.

Scrambling is one of the most satisfying forms of travel though the mountains. An opportunity to move swiftly, with minimal equipment, covering great distances in spectacular situations.

Our scrambling courses are based on the West coast of Scotland where we have some of the finest scrambles around.

Inspired by Scotland’s big ridges and amazing views, this coming summer season, Di Gilbert Mountaineering will be offering scrambling courses.

These courses are aimed specifically at hill walkers and climbers who want to learn all there is to know about scrambling.

Please contact Di Gilbert directly if you have any questions, if you are unsure if this course is suitable for you or any other enquiries.


We base ourselves in the West Highlands which give us fast access to the mountains.
