  • Anyone interested in attending a FREE winter hill walking lecture? I'm scheduling this for the Perth date in November but if Edinburgh would suit people better am happy to change to that.

    Suitable for anyone who wants to find out more about the Scottish hills in winter. Highly recommended for all hill walkers and aspiring hill walkers even those who are not currently considering venturing out in winter.

    Advance booking essential.

    "The MCofS has teamed up with Cotswold Outdoor, Tiso, The Mountain Cafe, Aviemore, Scottish Walks magazine and The Munro Society to offer you a fascinating insight into Scotland's mountains in winter and some essential safety advice for heading into the hills at this time of year.

    In this free lecture, Heather Morning, our Mountain Safety Advisor will share her beautiful photography, videos, personal anecdotes and adventures, while equipping you with some essential skills for winter navigation, avalanche awareness, route choice, equipment, mountain weather and much more. 

    With a lifetime's experience in the mountains, Heather has been a professional mountaineer for 25 years and for the last 12 years has been an active member of the Cairngorm Mountain Rescue Team.
