We pick the most suitable routes for you to give an enjoyable time.

We supply all the technical equipment for climbing.


The Family Fun Rock Day in Glen Nevis can be easily adapted to suit everyone: young or old, cautious to daring, over a half or full day.


With a gentle introductory walk in Glen Nevis discovering its hidden secrets and taking in the amazing scenery the climbing crags are reached. With safety equipment fitted the climbing begins in short manageable sections.  Constantly moving up the broad ridge there are options to make it as long or short, as hard or easy as you like.


Now in a remote part of Glen Nevis we can walk over the rough ground to the main climbing area where we have options to progress onto some introductory rock climbs or even an easy abseil.


From the climbing area it is a short walk back to the road.
