Great day going up Tower Ridge with Scott Kirkhope. Loved it!!
What a fantastic trip ! This was my first time to use crampons and scrabbling. The pre walk information and communication was 10/10 Scott and Malcolm were extremely professional with a great knowledge of the mountain. I felt safe yet appropriately challenged throughout which made for an unforgettable day. The company was top class too. I could not recommend climbing Ben Nevis with Kirkhope mountaineering highly enough ! Thanks so much Paula
The guide I had on the day was Dave Fowler, not Ken
Excellent guide Garry took time did not rush explained things points of nature and answered any questions enthusiastically Always take a guide when unsure and I recommend this
Scott Kirkhope very organised and all went to plan. I’ve passed on his details to a friend!
Stay up-to-date on the best adventures.
