BEN NEVIS – YOUR WAY

Want to climb Ben Nevis? Let’s do it your way!

 

 Whether you want to run, walk or scramble, there are plenty of ways to reach the highest summit in the UK. Simply tell us what you want out of your day and we’ll make it a reality.

 

You can climb Ben Nevis via the Tourist/Pony Path, via the North Face/Charles Ingles Clark (CIC) Memorial Hut or by scrambling across the Carn Mor Dearg Arete on your way round the Ben Nevis Horseshoe. Alternatively try your hand at Ledge Route or Castle Ridge for exposed, graded scrambling near the North Face of Ben Nevis.

MOUNTAINS BY RAIL

Make the most of Scotland's rail links and meet your Girls on Hills Guide at a rail station for a mountain running challenge straight off the track!

 

From Crianlarich, we can show you the gnarly Crianlarich 5 Round, from Tyndrum the impressive Ben Lui 4 or from the Falls of Cruachan/Loch Awe we can run the rocky Ben Cruachan Round.

 

For something altogether different, meet your guide at Corrour Station and run the low-level trails back to civilisation or bag the Munros surrounding the scenic and remotely located Loch Ossian.

 

So many options! All you need is your trail running vest and a rail ticket - we'll see you there!
