What we offer

All our guides are local to the area and have many years’ experience in the mountains, helping people navigate through the munros 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 the munros around Fort William.

The prices quoted are for one guide per group or individual, so our walks will always go ahead.


Centred around the town of Fort William, Lochaber stretches east towards the Ben Alder area, north to Glen Shiel, west to the coast of Arisaig and onto Rum and Eigg and south to the Isle of Mull and Glen Coe.

The different mountain ranges mentioned below all have a very different feel from each other. From the easily accessible Mamores and Glen Coe peaks to the very remote Knoydart hills.  Whether you are well on your way to completing the Munros, just starting your 1st round or want go get up some classic Scottish mountains, the area around Fort William is a great base.
