Welcome to the Scottish Climbers Blog!


Through this blog, a few of us plan to record our adventures in the Scottish hills and further afield. None of us is an elite climber but we're all keen, reasonably experienced and motivated for the next big route. We read other climbers' blogs regularly, particularly over the winter to gauge conditions, so we hope this blog is just as useful and entertaining for others as many of our favourite blogs have been for us.

Since we're on the countdown to the start of the winter season, here are a few of our highlights from last winter to get the psyche going:

Andy Inglis eying up the pillar on Square-Cut Chimney on Creagan a'Choire Etchachan

Francis Blunt on the crux of Blood, Sweat and Frozen Tears on Beinn Eighe

Jim Higgins on the second pitch of Sioux Wall on Ben Nevis

Andy Inglis on the top pitch of Messiah on Beinn Dorain

Me on the start of the main pitch of Strident Edge

Lets hope we get another winter like that this year!
