Guided Rock Climbing

Guided rock climbing at Longhaven, Peterhead

Go on an adventure whilst your safety is ensured along the way. Being guided offers a great way of trying something you don’t yet have the skillset to do, or perhaps are not yet confident enough to do alone. On these days you can relax whilst the leading and route finding is done for you, but that doesn’t mean there won’t be opportunities to learn along the way and improve your confidence.

I can offer guided climbing on any climbs in Scotland. Climbing in the mountains, sea cliffs or crags. If you would like to go rock climbing but are not sure what route or what routes are there, then get in touch and we can chat about your ambitions and what routes match.

No experience is necessary to get out climbing. Climbs can be matched to your experience and ambitions. Please look at some of the routes below to get more of an idea of what is involved and some suggestions. OR get in touch with your own route if you already have one in mind.

All safety aspects will be covered by Liam and there will be an opportunity to learn more about climbing and staying safe. Don’t worry if you have not used any of the equipment before everything will be explained.


Locations: Climbing can take place on sea cliffs on the North and South Coasts of Aberdeen, at Newtonhill, Cove and Cruden Bay. We also use Inland crags at Ballater and on Clachnaben. Climbing on mountain routes can be on Lochangar, Creag an Dubh Loch or in the Cairngorm National Park. Guiding can be offered outwith these area, please get in touch.

The ratio for guiding is 1 instructor to 2 participants. Under 18s welcome, but the other participant must be a parent who is climbing also.

The Cost is £220 for a full day for up to 2 participants, £120 for a half day or evening. Full days are approximately 8 hours. Half days and evening are 4 hours. Climbing on sea cliffs can be a half day. Mountain routes will always be a full day.

All climbing equipment is provided.
