Winter is a wonderland at the Lodge and we have some of the best winter climbing on our doorstep

You can assess the conditions while having your breakfast by looking at the routes out the window. Adventure is never far away when you are based in the middle of one of Europe’s last great wilderness areas.

Whether you are a summer hill walker just starting out in winter or you’re looking to test your skills on some of the classic routes on Ben Nevis, we have the perfect course for you. Dont miss our excellent avalanche courses too, designed to improve your decision making skills.

We offer both Winter Mountain Leader & Mountain Instructor Certificate courses for those looking for qualifications.

Winter Mountaineering & Winter Climbing Reviews

Everything I was hoping to learn from an enthusiastic and fun instructor.
Louise Stone Advanced Winter Skills


We had a great time, everyone was super friendly, food and facilities are great, they even have Cairngorm brewery beers on tap.
My only complaint was the weather was hot and sunny! I wanted a little taste of the famous wild Cairngorm weather.
I recommended this course.
