What we offer
All our guides are local to the area and have many years’ experience in the mountains, helping people explore the Highlands around Fort William.
Our guides know the best routes and are very knowledgeable about the mountain environment, so the day can be easily split up with interesting chats, wildlife and great views along the way.
We only organise private groups for walks up these peaks near Fort William.
The prices quoted are for one guide per group or individual, so our walks will always go ahead.
The peaks on offer are all situated in the spectacular Highland mountain ranges but just because they are not the selected few popular peaks that everyone knows, does not make getting to their summits a less worthwhile experience.
These peaks are Grahams, Corbetts or Munros and each can easily be completed in a day walk. However, it is worth bearing in mind that most of the peaks have small or non-existent paths so a good level of hill fitness and the confidence to walk over rough ground is required.
