Local guide for Ben Nevis

We provide all the specialist equipment you need, it’s all part of the total cost so you won’t be hit by an extra charge for kit hire. All our harnesses and helmets meet all safety standards and are checked and maintained by an industry expert. 

Over the years we have taken hundreds of people for their first climb, we make sure the level of the climb matches your fitness and experience. We have crags that are minutes from the road all the way through to long routes on the mountains.


Rock climbs come in a range of grades, so we match the grade to you. It’s only you and your friends, so no pressure to climb harder or easier than is right for you! The fitter you are the easier you will probably find it, but often the strong rely too much on strength and don’t realise a calm head and good technique is more effective. 

Let us know what you want and we can make sure we try our best to make it happen.   We never guarantee a specific route as we have to work with the weather.

Why not book a ‘rest day’ abseiling, climbing, scrambling and the amazing Tyrolean Traverse across the gorge in Glen Nevis.

All these activities are only a short distance from the road, so great for a low level day that is high in adventure.
