Stewart Mountain Skills

Aviemore Inverness-shire

A font of wilderness wisdom, Aviemore-based Ian Stewart is a fully qualified mountaineering instructor who will take you into the Cairngorms in any weather and teach you not only how to survive (literally), but also how to have a great time while you're exploring this, one of the most dramatic patches of natural landscape left in Britain. From simple hiking and navigation skills though to ice climbing and building a snowhole to sleep out in, Ian can walk you through the lot. The Cairngorms is a serious playground no matter what the weather conditions (which can change in the beat of a heart), and knowledge is a life-saving asset out here. Ian knows these hills like the back of his gloves, and he can construct the perfect adventure for anyone, no matter their experience, as long as they have a basic level of physical fitness.
