3 weeks to Skills for the Hills

Just 3 weeks to go until Mountain Aid’s Skills for the Hills day.

This fantastic day out is set to be Scotland’s biggest gathering of outdoor enthusiasts. Catering for hill-walkers, climbers and mountain bikers there will be something for everyone from novice to years of experience.

With 30 plus exhibitors there will be equipment displays, demos and advice from major retailers including boot fitting, rucksack fitting, tents, camping equipment, walking poles/ice-axes, mountain bikes and clothing. Mountain rescue teams and Search and Rescue dogs (yes, some 4-legged team members will be there) will be in attendance along with modern rescue equipment. In contrast Mick Tighe’s Scottish Mountain Heritage Collection will also be there. Course and activity providers will be in attendance to offer information and advice on helping you improve your hill skills. Workstations on mountain weather and navigation will be on offer. Accommodation providers, Mountain Bothies Association and John Muir Trust are just a few of the other exhibitors who will be present.

If all that is not enough, then there will also be a full day’s programme of illustrated talks and presentations from Cameron McNeish, Heather Morning (Mountaineering Scotland), Stuart Johnston and others.

Time and place? The prestigious Glasgow Royal Concert Hall on the 25th March from 10am to 4.30pm. Entry fee just £2 per adult (£1 per child) which includes a copy of the printed programme and entry to the prize draw with quality prizes donated by the exhibitors.
