Classic West Coast Guided Scrambling

The west coast of Scotland holds some of the best scrambling anywhere in the UK, join us to experience the best of what is on offer in Glen Coe, Ben Nevis and Ardgour and let us give you memories that will be with you for the rest of your life!

Day 1 Ledge Route - Ben Nevis

Today we meet chat through the week with the forecast and plan ahead accordingly. We then head off up towards The North Face of the Ben looking to ease us into the week by tackling ledge route which has some easier scrambling with stunning views across the north face.

Day 2  Lagan Garbh - Buachaille Etive Mor

Day two we hope to head into Glen Coe to tackle the impressive looking Lagan Garbh, with its rounded rough rock to start off with and weaving our way up the buttress which has a steeper finish but is short lived!

Day 3  Aonach Eagach

The ridge that everyone talks about and wants to do, well today we tackle it head on! It's a fair hike to Am Bodach before we get kitted up for the first little section of scrambling, we walk the next section before weaving our way to the pinnacles! An absolute classic! 

Day 4  Curved Ridge - Buachaille Etive Mor

Back to the Buachille today to head up Curved Ridge, with the distinctly panoramic views across Rannoch Moor it's a jaw dropper. It's a little spicier today with a few steeper sections to negotiate, and it spits us out at the summit of Stob Dearg.

Day 5  Tower Ridge - Ben Nevis

Tower Ridge, regarded as one of the best scrambles in Scotland, and rightly so, we have saved this one till the last day for you to finish on a high! It has some of the best views of the North face, and it pops you out onto the summit of the Ben after negotiating in infamous tower gap.
