Summer Mountain Leader
SUMMER MOUNTAIN LEADER TRAINING AND ASSESSMENT COURSES
We are pleased to be the only Scottish Summer ML provider recommended by World Challenge Expeditions to their expedition leaders. Our course prices are the most competitive in the UK and our course quality second to none.
Before attending a Summer ML Training Course, potential candidates must register with one of the home nation Mountain Leader Training Boards. In Scotland this would usually be Mountain Training Scotland. However, you may register, or be registered, with another UK Board if you so wish and still attend an ML training or assessment course with us in Scotland.
Please remember, if you have any questions about a Summer ML training or assessment course, feel free to either email us or give us a call on 01340 871071. We’ll be very happy to help.
Our Summer ML courses are located at Badaguish Outdoor Centre near Glenmore. This gives excellent access to superb training facilities and easy access to the mountains. It is close to the A9 and the shops and accommodation in Aviemore.
