Those who want to try the sport of bouldering have been offered guidance on this by the Mountaineering Council of Scotland (MCofS).

According to the body, this is a sport for those who have yet to try climbing, or may have been on a climbing wall and want to have a go at bouldering but don't know where to go.

Information on how to get started and what locations are best suited is included in the guide, which the MCofS has made available as a PDF on its website and will soon release in hard copy form.

Those keen to take up bouldering may wish to buy some climbing shoes to help with their ascents.

Locations in Scotland with good indoor facilities for practice and instruction include the Ice Factor at Kinlochleven near Glencoe and Glenmore Lodge near Aviemore.

People visiting the Ice Factor will also find it offers facilities to learn the art of ice climbing, boasting an ice wall five times larger than anywhere else in the world.
