The Castle are very pleased to present our newest Castle Associate - Mountain Magic. Founded by former Castle instructor Paul Boggis, Mountain Magic offer hillwalking, mountaineering and climbing courses in the Lake District, North Wales and Scottish Highlands. We have a rigorous vetting procedure for all of our Castle Associates and we are confident that you'll be delighted with your Mountain Magic experience. More importantly, we know that you'll be in safe hands.
We like Mountain Magic because they share many of our values and their commitment to reducing environmental impact is reflected how they structure their courses. For example, the Scottish Winter Walking Week includes:
pick up at Fort William train station;
food sourced ethically, locally and organically whenever possible; and
Green Tourism Award winning accomodation at Glen Coe Cottages.
The cost of the week long course is £495. There is a 10% discount for Castle Climbing Centre members and a further 10% if you book before Christmas.
2014 course dates:
5 - 11 January
2 - 8 February
2 - 8 March
Hooray for us!
The Castle won the Sustainable Building and Sustainable Procurement Awards at the 2011/2012 Sustainable City Awards. More sustainability...
