ClimbScotland is a program by Mountaineering Scotland to inspire young people across Scotland to develop a love of climbing and mountaineering, while giving parents, schools, colleges, youth organisations and climbing walls the skills and support to meet young peoples’ climbing needs.

Thanks to financial support from sportscotland, the national agency for sport, we have developed the ClimbScotland team who offer free expert advice and resources to those looking to develop climbing activities, events, clubs or facilities for people of all ages including parents, schools, colleges, youth organisations and climbing walls.

We offer fantastic opportunities including:

Mountaineering Scotland is the national representative and membership organisation for hill walkers, climbers, mountaineers and ski-tourers in Scotland and the governing body for indoor climbing, and acts to represent, support and promote Scottish mountaineering and climbing.

Mountaineering Scotland provides information and training to promote safety, self-reliance and the enjoyment of Scotland’s hills, mountains and climbing venues, while also campaigning to protect Scotland’s mountain landscapes and to safeguard access rights.

Our aim is to inspire people to enjoy the benefits of hill walking, climbing, ski touring and mountaineering in Scotland, and provide opportunities to get involved in these activities.

As a not-for-profit membership organisation, funding comes from a combination of membership subscriptions, non-governmental grants and investment from sportscotland which supports ClimbScotland activities and the Mountaineering Scotland Mountain Safety program.
