Hillwalking and Climbing
Paddlepower and Adventure can also offer summer and winter hillwalking. This can be anywhere in
Scotland, but mainly based in the beautiful Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park. We can
provide equipment if needed, and can tailor the experience to your requirements,
focussing on aspects such as navigation, expeditioning and the environment.
We can provide a range of walks from gentle strolls to multi-day expeditions - it's your choice.
Also for thrill-seekers, can provide single pitch rock climbing and abseiling in and around Glen Croe
near Arrochar. Choose from half day or whole day sessions.
We are also offering some free guiding and coaching on multi pitch rock climbing. This free offering is due to me working towards
the Mountaineering and Rock Climbing Instructor qualification. I require 1 or preferably 2 people at a time to guide, instruct and
coach on multi pitch rock climbing. You should have some previous experience in rock climbing (Not necessarily multi pitch) and be
able to belay safely. This is a great opportunity to improve your climbing technique and Improve rope work and general safety. We
will tailor the day/s to suit your level. You will need to supply your own harness, helmet and rock shoes. We will supply ropes and climbing hardware.
If this is of interest to you please get in contact with us.
Below you can find our grading system for hillwalks which will give you an idea of which level is suitable for you and your group. There
is also a list of example walks that are on offer. This is only a guide, so if you would like a walk that isn't listed please contact us for a chat.
