* 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.


Join me on an unforgettable traverse of the Aonach Eagach Ridge, a Scottish classic! During this full-day adventure, you will be expertly guided every step of the way, so that you can explore it.

The Aonach Eagach Ridge in Scotland is located north of Glencoe, and 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. This makes traversing the ridge a thrilling and challenging adventure. In fact, the Aonach Eagach Ridge is considering the most difficult of all the ridges in the Scottish Highlands.

The most difficult part of the Aonach Eagach Ridge is in 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, 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, participants on this trip should have prior scrambling experience on classic Scottish Routes in order to join. A good fitness level is also required.

So, 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.

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.
