Before heading out into the Scottish outdoors please remember to:

  • Check the COVID protection measures where you live and where you plan to go. Note that restrictions may differ between Scotland and the rest of the UK.
  • Plan your route and check the mountain weather and avalanche forecasts before you go.
  • Take appropriate winter clothing, footwear and equipment including torch, map and compass and plenty of food and drink.
  • Build up your confidence and practice navigation and winter skills on simpler routes before taking on more complex and longer days.
  • Be prepared to alter your plans or turn back if the weather or conditions change.
  • Let someone know where you are going, what time you will be back and what to do if you do not return as expected.
  • If you are lost or injured and can’t get off the hill call 999, ask for Police then ask for Mountain Rescue.
