BEN NEVIS GUIDED WALKS 2013
At 1344m above sea level, Ben Nevis is the highest mountain in the UK and is a huge lure for many visitors to Scotland. A popular mountain for obvious reasons but it's ascent, even by the easiest route, should not be under estimated. A guided ascent with Tarmachan Mountaineering will be one full of interesting history, geology, fauna and flora as well as guiding you safely to the top and back! I walk at a sensible pace to suit the group with plenty of rest stops along the way. The youngest person to summit has been 9 yrs old and the eldest 82 yrs old!
Tarmachan Mountaineering can offer you a weekend break consisting of a day on Ben Nevis and a guided walk in the nearby mountains of The Mamores.
You can be assured you will get lots of vital information prior to booking with us. I have made countless ascents and know the mountain intimately, including what weather conditions you can expect on the mountain and current snow conditions in Spring, Autumn and Winter.
If you are feeling more adventurous and would like to discover other more interesting, remoter routes and quieter ways to the top of Britain then have a look at the ADVENTEROUS ROUTES page.
I guide on Ben Nevis all year round. Winter on 'The Ben' can be spectacular and Alpine like, the winters' of 2010 and 2011 have been very spectacular with many cloudless days and an excellent cover of snow, even to low levels for long periods. For full details of: GUIDED WINTER ASCENT
BEN NEVIS WEEKEND
Through out the year I can offer a weekend of guiding in The Fort William area consisting of Ben Nevis and a days walking on The Mamores or nearby Glencoe.
Even in April there is still plenty of snow on Ben Nevis. Is it winter or is it summer?
