‘The Place of the Gaels’ explores both the community and culture of winter mountaineering and climbing in the Highlands, introducing our American athletes to the notorious Scottish winter.

From the climbers and skiers who live for Scottish winter to the musicians and craftspeople who make their living in the highlands, so much of our inspiration still comes from the mountains of Scotland.

With the Rab family now extending far beyond these isles, in January 2017 we invited athletes and staff from our US Team to come and experience Scottish winter with us. This film, produced by Coldhouse Collective, catalogues their journey through the country as they discover that the weather is just as fickle, the people just as welcoming and the climbing just as demanding as they'd always heard.

"Mountain culture is repeated globally, whether we're doing it in Nepal, Alaska, El Chaltén or in Chamonix; that's what makes the community somewhat unique."
