Hunter Mountaineering & Guiding

Welcome to Hunter Mountaineering - Professional, friendly and experienced Guiding, Instruction and Coaching in all aspects of British Mountaineering and Climbing.

We offer Private Guiding and the courses that follow -

Private Guiding

This is the solution if you want to 'tick' specific climbs, summits or scrambles or work on particular skills. What could Private Guiding do for you? - Do you want to learn how to navigate, become more independent as a mountaineer, or do you want to complete a particular route, for example - Tower Ridge, Aonach Eagach, or summit Ben Nevis?

Summer opportunities include -

1 Ben Nevis Walk
Ben Nevis is the highest Munro and mountain in the UK. This day is a guided day walk up the Mountain track. An absolute must for any keen hill walker.
2 Munro Summits
A guided day out on the magnificent Scottish Munros. A few examples could be those in Glencoe, the Mamores, the Aonachs or Grey Corries.

These 2 days are designed to look at the specific skills needed by a hill walker to make them independent, competent , safe and confident in the British Mountains.
