Mountain Safety

Since 2015, St John Scotland has worked in partnership with Mountaineering Scotland to provide mountain safety training to young people across the country.


The St John Scotland Mountain Safety Instructor programme offers free training to university and college mountaineering groups throughout the year.

The aim of the training is to ensure that young people coming into the sport and developing an interest in outdoor pursuits can do so safely. Courses are delivered in real life conditions, on a range of terrain and in all weathers, to equip young people with practical skills that will stand them in good stead for life.
