Terms and Conditions

If booking online a Booking Form will be forwarded to you.

Booking a course:

To book a place on an activity please return the Booking Form and payment. A place on the activity is only confirmed once the payment has been received.


If a client cancels:

If a client decides to cancel we need written confirmation of the cancellation. If you cancel your place within 6 weeks of the activity starting please note that we will not refund your payment if we are unable to fill your place.

We recommend that you take out insurance to cover any cancellation costs including accommodation and transport costs as Katherine Grugeon is not liable for these costs and is unable to reimburse any extra costs.

If we cancel:

Sometimes, regrettably Katherine Grugeon may have to cancel an activity due to unsuitable weather conditions, illness or if we have not got enough clients for the activity.

If this is the case we will refund the payment in full or give you the option of a place on another activity. However Katherine Grugeon is not liable for any accommodation or transport costs and we strongly recommend that you take out insurance.

Safety Statement:

Mountain Walking, scrambling and hill walking and walking are physically demanding activities. You need to ensure that you are fit enough to participate in the activities that you have booked into for your own enjoyment and that of other clients.  

Clients need to take responsibility for their own actions and involvement in the activity. They need to abide by any safety decisions taken by the activity leader.

Mountaineering, hill-walking and climbing are all hazardous activities. There is always an element of risk which could result in injury or death.

BMC Participation Statement

The BMC recognises that climbing and mountaineering are activities with a danger of personal injury or death. Participants in these activities should be aware of and accept these risks and be responsible for their own involvement.


Katherine Grugeon has full public liability cover.

We advise you to take out your own personal sports cover such as that offered by the BMC. We also recommend that you take out insurance that covers cancellation.
