Scottish Mountain Hire offers a dropbox service for winter boots, crampons and ice axes allowing you more time to be in the mountains. Pick them up and drop them off up late or early, meaning you don't have to worry about rushing down before the shops close. Winter boot hire has never been this easy!

Get in contact with us to see if we have your size, book and pay online or we can come to meet you and do it all there and then. Contactless payments and paperless hire forms.
