Our Story

Craigdon Mountain Sports Inverness is an independent family-run business. We are a small team passionate about the outdoors, especially the Scottish Highlands. We will only sell items we feel are suitable for our environment and that have been produced doing the least harm to people and the planet.

We were reborn in 2015 when Colin and Lindsay bought the Inverness store from the original Craigdon Mountain Sports Family. Making us the only independent Mountain Sports Retailer in Inverness. Since then, we have moved into a new premises at 25 Academy Street and concentrated our range on some of the industry’s best brands such as; Mountain Equipment, Rab, Montane, Paramo, and Patagonia which we feel suit the climate of Scottish Highlands perfectly.

We are delighted to have a small team here in the shop. That means you will be served by Colin, Elaine, Buzz, Hannah, Thomas, Finbar, or Harris whenever you come in. Every team member brings some expertise from the mountain sports the highlands have to offer. Check out our Staff Profiles to find out more.

 We offer an unrivaled Ski boot fitting service, with three expert boot fitters on the team with over 40 years of combined experience (Colin, Elaine, and Thomas). We fit our Ski boots with comfort and performance in mind. Each fit starts with a Biomechanical Assessment before we start to measure and find the perfect boot for you. If you are looking for a new pair of Ski boots give us a call and book an appointment. 

Don’t worry we also offer expert walking boot fitting as well. If you struggle to find a boot that works for your foot come in and see us. We are confident we can help find a boot/shoe that you are comfortable in. Between our staff we have over 80 years of footwear fitting experience.
