Guided weekend on classic Glencoe rock scrambles !

In addition to the famed 'Aonach Eagach' and mighty Buachaillie Etive Mor's 'Curved Ridge', Glencoe has much more to offer in the way of fine rock-scrambling routes. We're based in and around this fabulous area for an extended weekend discovering some of these routes.

You'll have the excitement of clambering up some routes that we don't do an any other events and we'll prepare you for other great days, including the Aonach Eagach ridge traverse and the Skye Cuillin Munros.
