Ben Nevis (Beinn Nibheis in Scottish Gaelic) is the UK's highest mountain. Standing 1345 metres above sea level, it’s a must-do munro and a challenging day walk. Depending on your experience, we offer either of two routes to the summit: the easier Pony trail from Glen Nevis, or the more challenging Carn Mor Dearg (CMD) arête route. Other hikes are on offer in the areas around Ben Nevis.
A famous and iconic Scottish glen (valley), Glencoe is a must-do for hillwalkers. A glacial valley carved out of the rock by a river of ice ten thousand years ago, Glencoe offers spectacular, towering scenery and the famous Three Sisters of Glencoe - massive tongues of rock reaching down towards the road. Glencoe offers a variety of hillwalking routes, all with easy access from the A82 road. And the Clachaig Inn, one of Scotland's best known pubs, is close by for rest and relaxation afterwards.
Arrochar is a small and scenic village at the head of Loch Long. Only an hour's drive from Glasgow, the Arrochar Alps are very easy to get to for a day of hiking but still offer characteristic Scottish mountain views and breathtaking west coast scenery. The Arrochar Alps are made up of six munros and a few lower mountains, like The Cobbler (Ben Arthur). Ben Lomond, the most southerly of Scotland's munros (and one of the most popular) sits on the east bank of Loch Lomond.
Tyndrum and Crianlarich are gateway towns to the west coast and the Highlands. They are both within two hours of driving from Glasgow on the A82 road. They are also a good base for mountain days out - and both towns have nice pubs where you can rest and relax after a good day out in the mountains!
