The Scottish Mountaineering Trust

We provide grants to projects that encourage and improve the public's enjoyment of mountainous regions, especially the mountainous regions of Scotland.

The Trust supports:

  • Footpath construction and maintenance projects
  • Land purchases that ensure public access
  • Mountaineering education and training, especially that aimed at young people
  • Mountain rescue teams and organisations, for equipment and facilities
  • Renovation of club huts, for huts available to the wider mountaineering community
  • Expeditions with educational or scientific objectives aligned with those of the Trust
