Welcome to the Mountaineering Scotland Insurance Centre

Everyone taking part in mountaineering and climbing has a duty to ensure that the sport is carried out in the safest way possible, but incidents do happen.

Mountaineering Scotland, with Howden, has arranged liability insurance for the protection of its individual and club members and volunteers in the event that you are held responsible for an injury to someone else or damage to their property.

On this site you will find information regarding the cover that has been arranged for your protection.


Covid-19 - Amendments to Cover

For those with huts and hut property insurance via Howden, please click here for more information regarding unoccupied premises.  

If your hut is not insured via Howden then you will need to check with your own insurance provider. 

Further guidance can be found on the Mountaineering Scotland website here.


Please note: all information relating to insurance is valid only until the renewal date of any particular policy, for details of cover after that date please contact Howden.
