Equipment + Preparation For the West Coast of Scotland and Scottish highlands, around the Glencoe and Ben Nevis areas

Just use this as a basic check  list before you leave. You absolutely MUST tell someone where you are going, what time you expect to return. You must also check in with them on your return. Rescue teams love a call out when the climbers are already safely tucked up in bed. Get into serious trouble, then try dialling 999 on the mobile and cross your fingers. You’ll need to have your grid reference handy.
SCOTTISH HIGHLANDS WEST OF SCOTLAND
around Glencoe and Ben Nevis

Warm trousers, not jeans, thermal top, fleece jacket, thick socks –  wear a thin pair underneath, and boots. A walking stick helps your knees


You’ll also need water- and wind-proof jacket and trousers, preferably Gore-Tex or similar, spare clothing, hat and gloves, First Aid kit, survival bag, food, drinks, map 1:25000 is recommended, compass, whistle, watch, torch+spare battery. Have a woman in the party. They survive more easily.  

In winter you need ice axe, crampons and goggles.

Yes, you do, this can be serious stuff


Your mobile cannot be relied upon although it will work on the tops; Vodaphone seems best, but not in all areas of the mountains


A GPS system is very useful for marking waypoints there and back, but you cannot rely on it without a map and compass as well. If there is a clash between the GPS position and what you read on the map, the GPS will be right. Trust us.  The compass needs a magnifying lens, and scales for measuring distances on the map. Remember to add 3 degrees to allow for magnetic variation
