Ben Nevis & Glen Coe area Walking Week

Ben Nevis and Glen Coe area guided walking week

Package of 5 walks - Sunday 6th - Friday 11th June 

or package of 3 walks Sunday 6th - Tuesday 8th June 2021 

 

Enjoy a week or a few days of scenic mountain walks in the stunning Ben Nevis and Glen Coe area of Scotland.  You will be in a small group of no more than five people plus your guide.  Both Cath Lee and Rachel Bolton will be guiding separate groups for the first three days.  The Thursday and Friday walks will be guided by Cath Lee.     

If you haven't walked in the Scottish mountains before, please do be aware that they are more challenging than other mountainous area of the UK in terms of the amount of ascent and the roughness of terrain.  A good level of hill walking fitness is required, and confidence on steep rocky slopes where scrambling is sometimes necessary.

 

We're pleased to be able to offer two options:

  1. A multi-day package comprises five full day guided walks on Sunday 6th, Monday 7th, Tuesday 8th, Thursday 10th and Friday 11th June.  The Wednesday will be a free day for you to relax or arrange your own activities or sightseeing. 
  2. A package comprising just three guided walks on Sunday 6th, Monday 7th and Tuesday 8th.   

Whilst the programme is being left flexible to enable us to make the most of the weather, we hope to climb some of the most iconic mountains in the area.  Should the weather be poor, there are many scenic lower level walks to be enjoyed. 

 

Possible walking options for the week include:

 

High Level Mountain Routes:

  • Ben Nevis, either by the Pony Track or the more adventurous Carn Mor Dearg Arete.
  • Buachaille Etive Mor, the famous mountain at the end of Glen Coe with it's stunning ridge linking two Munro peaks.
  • Stob Ban and The Devil's Ridge, for panoramic views across the glen to Ben Nevis.
  • Bidean nam Bian, one of the famous mountains of Glen Coe. 
  • The Pap of Glencoe, the familiar landmark around the lower end of the glen and Loch Leven.

Lower Level Walks

  • The Dun Deardail Fort and Cow Hill.  A scenic walk along forestry trails and up to a fine viewpoint.
  • Lismore Island.  Having taken the ferry across, this lovely little island is a delight to explore on foot.
  • Loch Eilde and the lower hills to the east of Kinlochleven.
  • The Nevis Gorge and Steal Falls.
  • The Allt a' Mhuilinn path for stunning view of the impressive north face of Ben Nevis.
