About the Series

Now in the 34th year, the Clachaig Winter Mountain Safety Lecture series is the longest running safety initiative of its kind. Designed to be a last port of call before setting off into the winter hills, each lecture will look at key safety considerations which may be a timely reminder when planning your outing for the next day. Read more about the lecture series…

We are particularly keen to ensure that the lecture series remains FREE ENTRY as it has done since its inception. However, there are costs and we are extremely grateful for the backing and financial support of Rab. Their belief in the value of the lectures has ensured that the series can continue to be delivered for the 2019 season.


Whilst the lectures are free, we will be asking you to part with a pound, or three, as we raise funds for Glencoe Mountain Rescue throughout the course of FebruaryFest.


There are some great prizes from Rab and a range of other local and connected businesses. Read more about The Big Winter Raffle. 


Raffle tickets will be on sale on the night, and throughout February at Clachaig.
