How the Coronavirus affects our events and your booking with us

This information will be updated as UK and Scottish Government advice is revised.

Latest information

We are following the Scottish Government guidelines and taking advice from the Mountaineering Council of Scotland, the British Mountaineering Club websites and other sources.

The current situation with our events :
  • General picture for all events
    All our events listed in our calendar are predicted to go ahead as planned, weather permitting. There are some exceptions and these are listed below.

  • Events where social distancing is difficult
    Some of our events have unavoidable close-contact. We may have to tweak some of these events or cancel others to accommodate Scottish Government guidelines and restrictions.

    These events include :
    • those with rock-scrambling, for example the Aonach Eagach traverse. For the forseeable future we have lowered the guide-to-client ratio on these events, typically 1:2.
    • our skills courses including our Navigation Skills in Pentlands and Winter Skills events. These events no longer begin in a 'classroom' environment and take place entirely outdoors.
    • those with hostel accommodation, for example our Deepest Affric and Knoydart Munros events. These events will be adjusted to fit in with accommodation availability.

  • Other events
    All other events this year and next are intended to go ahead as planned, with some events having a lower than usual guide-to-client ratio or route tweaks to accommodate Covid-19 social distancing. We may have to ammend our calendar as the Covid situation changes.

  • Bookings by overseas clients
    Due to the uncertainty caused by ever-changing travel restrictions, all bookings made by overseas clients for 2021 have been cancelled. We can take provisional bookings for 2022 onwards.

Regardless of reason, if we cancel an event that you are currently booked on, we will refund in full. Our booking terms are stated here.

If you have any concerns about your booking, please do get in touch and we'll try our best to help. Our office is closed for the foreseeable future due to Covid restrictions.
