About Moran Mountain:

We are one of Britain’s most experienced mountain guiding schools offering coaching, adventures and expeditions in North-West Scotland, Norway, the Alps and the Himalayas. Founder Martin Moran, a British Mountain Guide, set out in 1985 to offer guiding in some of the worlds most stunning mountains. Today, Moran Mountain has over 30 years experience and has built a talented guiding staff. Our passion for mountaineering and adventurous spirit remains as strong. We have helped thousands of aspiring climbers to realise their mountaineering dreams. From hillwalking to technical climbing…. your next adventure starts here!

For those looking for a Scottish adventure, our base is Strathcarron in Wester Ross, at the threshold of the North West Highlands, home to some of the finest mountains in Britain. An Teallach, Liathach and the serrated ridges of the Cuillin of Skye rise in majestic isolation above the sea. From Strathcarron we can access all the peaks of Torridon, Applecross, Kintail, the North-West Highlands and Skye. The Cairngorms and Ben Nevis are also within our compass. We are just 90 minutes minutes’ drive from Inverness airport.

The tranquility and unspoilt nature of the North West  awaits you. Enjoy a sense of adventure and freedom as you explore new peaks and routes each day. Our local guides relish the challenge of an untracked ridge or a icy gully. Since setting up Moran Mountain in 1985, we have led our clients over 70 traverses of the Cuillin Ridge and recorded over a hundred new routes in the area.  We provide all the home comforts you crave after a good day on the hill with superb home-cooked meals and cosy lodgings in the heart of this dramatic mountain landscape that we are proud to call our home.

Our Scottish Winter courses offer instruction and guiding in the essential winter mountaineering skills plus  steeper snow, ice and mixed climbing. We traverse some of Britain’s finest ridges, teach survival skills and develop your navigational abilities. Techniques and experiences acquired with us will prepare you to climb in the Alps and Himalaya.

We run 5-day courses through the winter season plus a 4-day New Year special as well as 2 day weekend courses for friends, couples and small groups.
