SMC Journals

The Scottish Mountaineering Club Journal was first published in 1890 and has maintained a continuous record of mountain activities in Scotland since that date. It is the primary record for all mountaineering activities in Scotland and the essential reference source for anybody interested in the Scottish mountains – from historians to climbers seeking to establish new routes.

Over the last four years The Scottish Mountaineering Trust have supported a project to scan back copies of the Journal and make them available to the public on line.

All the pdfs are searchable. Some are rather large (size given when more than 100MB) and may require a fast Internet connection to download.
