Type of Trip



  • Enjoy a full day scrambling adventure on the Aonach Eagach Ridge in Scotland.

  • Push yourself on one of the most challenging ridges in the Scottish Highlands.


The Aonach Eagach Ridge in Scotland is a sensational ridge. Located north of Glencoe, the ridge stretches for approximately 10 kilometers, from the Pap of Glencoe to the Devil’s Staircase. The ridge also has two Munro summits: Meall Dearg and Sgorr nam Fiannaidh. Thus making the entire ridge a diverse, thrilling and challenging adventure. In fact, the Aonach Eagach Ridge is considering the most difficult of all the ridges in the Scottish Highlands to traverse. Thankfully, during this full day traverse of the ridge, you will be expertly guided every step of the way.

The most difficult part of the Aonach Eagach Ridge is at the central section. During this part of the ridge, which stretches for approximately 2 kilometers, the area is extremely rocky and traversing it requires scrambling. However, despite the challenges of the ridge, the views and the experience of making your way through it are unbelievably rewarding.

As a result of the challenging nature of the Aonach Eagach Ridge, participants on this trip should have prior scrambling experience on classic Scottish Routes. You should also be in good physical condition.

Are you looking for a real physical challenge in the Scottish Highlands? Then join me on this full-day traverse of the Aonach Eagach Ridge. I know you’ll have a fantastic and memorable experience.

I\'ve done the Tower Ridge with Scott and he has been excellent from the start, prompt and professional to deal with to get it all organised, and a superb guide. Highly experienced and skilled, I did not have a slight slip in confidence along the way, despite weather conditions being far from ideal with rain and fairly high winds - I should mention that I really appreciated he was keen to take me up there in this weather (of course maintaining the flexibility to turn around at any point if the route could potentially become unsafe, but his judgement was just spot on). He also explains everything along the way, gives tips and is fun to be around. 5 stars, I wouldn\'t hestitate to book him again.

Our mission was to hike up Ben Nevis but not along the main footpath. We hoped for something a bit more challenging. ..and we got it. Uncertain of what we’d be facing, Scott expertly assessed our ability during the first part of the hike and enthusiastically confirmed that we could handle the trip up the back. Knowledgeable about about the area, geology and flora, Scott was an excellent guide and fun to spend the day with. He offered us tips for managing the terrain and kept the pace that would give us the adventure we were looking for. We came away feeling that the investment in a guide was well worth it. We would not have tackled that route without his guidance. Recommended without reservation! Thanks Scott
