Central Europe has some of the most beautiful mountains in the word. Even though the highs look modest by comparison with high peaks on other continents, the 4000m peaks of the alps rise further above the snow line than many much higher mountains in the Himalaya. And to climb them we do not have to travel half way around the globe. The normal routes on the central European peaks can range from easy (F) to extremely hard (ED). Their are two mountaineering meccas in central Europe - Zermatt in Switzerland and Chamonix in France. Both areas have a vast choice of mountains. Zermatt for its 4000m peaks and Chamonix for its steep solid rock.

The Highlands of Scotland are one of the few areas of western Europe that could arguably be described as a wilderness. Roads are few and far between. It can be as much as twenty miles to the nearest habitation. The high plateau of the Cairngorms is a backdrop to every view, and ever-changing throughout the day as sun and shadow move across the hills. These high places lie at the core of the Cairngorms National Park Scotland which offers a huge variety of challenges from gentle walks to serious summer expeditions. The Cairngorms also host a selection of amazing watersports making Scotland an ideal country for outdoor activities
