Scottish Climbing Archive

The Scottish Climbing Archive is a free web-based resource aimed at climbers, hillwalkers and outdoor enthusiasts who either live in the UK or are planning to visit Scotland. We currently publish information on Rock & Ice Climbing, Mountaineering & Hillwalking in Scotland and more general/narrative articles on climbing and Scottish climbing areas. There are also some articles about safety on the hills and the Scottish weather. On that note, we're also trying to compile a list of mountain routes you can climb in the rain.
