How the Coronavirus affects our events and your booking with us

Last updated on 18 September. 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 and the British Mountaineering Club websites.

The Scottish Government has published a route map out of the Covid-19 situation. This route map consists of Lockdown followed by 4 Phases, we are currently in Phase 3.

From a hillwalking perspective, Phase 3 means that people can travel beyond their local area and meet in extended groups outdoors. All holiday accommodation can open and hospitality can open with restrictions in place.

Recent announcements from the Scottish and UK Governments limit the number of people and households meeting socially - we understand this does not apply to 'formal led mountain-related outdoor activity' or 'outdoor sporting activities', but will be keeping abreast of any further developments.

The current situation with our events :
  • 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 until the Scottish Government allows us to move into Phase 4.

    These events include :
  • Bespoke events booked by overseas clients
    All bespoke events booked by overseas clients for 2020 have been cancelled. We can take bookings for next year.

  • Other events
    All other events 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 restrictions.

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.
