The following are recent images taken for a guidebook I'm putting together - 'Scotland's winter mountains - with one axe'.
A working title but hopefully it says it all. The book should be available in time for the 2017/18 winter season. Click on any image to get a bigger picture and some background info.

The photos below are of some of the mountain areas visited and routes climbed over recent winters. The initial idea behind a gallery was to show the wild and beautiful places in Scotland where I'm lucky enough to go climbing and walking in the mountains. It's now just as much about the diversity of nice people I get to be on the hill with each winter. If you're keen to try any of the stuff below, or would like the skills to do it yourself, call or email and we'll fix something up.
