In 1923, George Mallory was asked by a reporter "Why do you want to climb Mount Everest?" and Mallory's response was "Because it's there". There is an overwhelming sense of achievement when you walk over that last crest and realise there is no more mountain to climb. The views from the top are spectacular. Looking out across the tops of other mountains, down through the glacial valleys and possibly out to sea. Head back to work after a long weekend in the mountains with a thirst for more, stories to tell and pictures to flaunt.

There are many famous peaks in the UK: Ben Nevis, Snowdon, Scafell Pike and Pen Y Fan to name the most famous. What ever your goal is, AT THE EDGE MOUNTAINEERING will endeavour to get you to the summit. Click on the area headings below for a list of mountain summits and take your pick. The list is not inclusive and if there is a summit you really want to do and it's not on the list, contact me to arrange something.

SCOTLAND

COST: £180

DURATION: 2 Days

RATIO: 1:6

The mountains of Scotland are almost Alpine like in nature. Aspiring Alpine mountaineers come to Scotland to train for their big objectives in Europe and further afield. Home to Ben Nevis, the UK's highest mountain, Scotland is big step up from the mountains of England and Wales. Long mountain ridges, steep slopes and forgotten Glens can make anyone feel like an adventurer!  Add to that the 282 Munros (Scottish mountains over 3000 feet) and there are a lot of possibilities to choose from!

All of our Scottish Summit Days are ran over 2 days to maximise our time in the Scottish mountains. So why not make a weekend of it and tick off more than one Munro? There are many routes up some of these summits, some harder than others, some are scrambles. If you require any more information on routes up a summit, feel free to send me a message.
