Local guide for Ben Nevis

Scrambling is half way between walking and climbing. At times you might need to use your hands. We carry a rope to make you feel confident. On many parts of a scramble you will feel comfortable to scramble along the route without the rope.

We have taken hundreds of adults, teenagers and children on their first scrambles. We fit the route to your fitness, experience and the weather. 


It’s your adventure and it’s only you and your friends in the group. So the walk will be based around your fitness. The bigger peaks can take 8 or more hours of walking over rough ground while some of the Glen routes follow tracks, rough muddy tracks but less challenging walking. Just let us know your level of experience and fitness and we can work with you to select the right challenge.

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

Want more adventure?

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.
