Mountaineering in The Cairngorms
This is an activity requiring a very good level of fitness, usually achieved by walking, hiking and climbing. A fitness regime is also beneficial, as this pursuit also requires stamina! There are some excellent, dedicated, training centres within the area with experienced staff where you can book courses and lessons to learn the skills required for this exacting sport. Guides can also be provided and are, in fact, advisable during this period. There are safety codes to learn together with instruction on survival, equipment and type of clothing required. Sounds serious – it is – but worth all the effort when you view the awe-inspiring scenery stretching before and away from you. A natural high – what we miss when we have no head for heights!
