1-day Climb on Tower Ridge (Ben Nevis), Scotland


Come and experience a thrilling full day climb on the Tower Ridge on the United Kingdom's highest peak, Ben Nevis, in Scotland with certified guide Scott.



1 Day

All year




  • Scale the famous Ben Nevis peak along the Tower Ridge.
  • Enjoy amazing views of the Scottish Highlands from the summit.


Ben Nevis (1,345m) is the highest peak in the United Kingdom. While its height may pale in comparison to other mountains in the world, it is nonetheless a spectacular peak. It also has several different climbing routes, and on this full-day trip, I would like to guide you along Tower Ridge.

A local classic, Tower Ridge is one of the best known and longest climbing routes on Ben Nevis. It spans 600 meters in length and offers fantastic views that seem to go on forever over the peak’s North Face cliffs.

Not an easy climb, ascending Ben Nevis’ Tower Ridge is challenging as there is an assortment of difficult spots. It is graded 3S as a scramble. However, the thrill of the experience and the magical views you will get to enjoy throughout the climb, and particularly from the summit of the Scottish Highlands, make it well worth it.

In order to participate in this climb, you should be in good physical shape. You should also have prior scrambling experience and be comfortable with heights.

Reaching the top of Ben Nevis via the Tower Ridge is literally reaching the top of the United Kingdom! To experience that for yourself, all you have to do is send me a request. I look forward to guiding you on this incredible ascent.

Mark was wonderful! He was extremely professional, knowledgeable and encouraged us throughout the hike to keep our spirits high! We would not have been able to do this safely and in such an enjoyable manner without him.

We thoroughly enjoyed our summit with Andy. Scott was also easy to communicate with. The whole experience was one to remember and we feel so proud to have made it to the top in the time that we did. Although our hike started in poor weather, we eventually got to see amazing views on the way down. Andy provided helpful facts about the mountains which makes us confident we will be taking on another challenge soon.

Scott is a great guide with excellent communication skills, local knowledge and technical expertise. The trip up the Ben was fantastic and throughout the whole experience Scott was always on hand to help or give assistance when needed as well as taking the time to teach me some new skills along the way. Thanks very much
