Mountain routes in Scotland

For many years I've been hiking, running, biking and climbing in the mountains in Scotland. This website is a blog of the routes I've taken to reach the summits of all the Munros, Corbetts and many other hills in the country.

You may have come to this website looking for a mountaineering or hillwalking guide. While running a mountain guiding business, I worked with a team of friendly freelance guides and instructors. These people run their own businesses and can be found listed on this page.
