Description

Climb two stunning peaks in Scotland during this memorable 1-day privately guided adventure!

Ben Arthur, commonly known as the “Cobbler,” is one of the more interesting climbs in the Scottish Southern Highlands. Classified as a Corbett due to its height of 884 meters (2,900 feet), it does not have the altitude of its nearby Munro neighbors. As a result, it is overlooked by many Munro baggers. However, they are missing out on a true gem of a climb, with craggy landscapes, impressive drops, breathtaking views, and an outstanding adventurous top.

If the conditions are favorable and you have a solid level of fitness, we can combine our ascent of Ben Arthur with the nearby Munro of Beinn Nairnain (926 meters, 3,038 feet) by taking a circular route. Beinn Nairnain is another interesting peak that is a highlight of the area for its fun route and spectacular views.

Book now for an exciting day spent among the awe-inspiring landscapes of the Scottish Highlands, as we climb to the top of two of the region’s most memorable hills.

I also offer other programs in Scotland: Indoor rock climbing for beginners in Edinburgh!

Paul

Mountain Leader

Over the years, I have dabbled in a wide range of professional endeavors ranging from the financial services sector to brewing beer. Trial and error eventually led me to hill walking, where I discovered my love of the outdoors and thus began my mountain guiding career.

While I would describe myself as a mountaineer at heart, I have always found it difficult to choose any one outdoor activity. Each offers a unique experience and the possibility for a perfect day given the right people, conditions and location.

I am a self-professed "eternal student" who is passionate about constant personal and professional growth. My curiosity has led me to acquire a number of outdoor qualifications across multiple disciplines. It also drives my desire to travel far and wide on a regular basis.

Over the years, I have been fortunate enough to visit Norway, India, Tanzania, Kenya, Morocco and Nepal, though I must admit the Alps will always hold a special place in my heart. At home, I put my love of learning to good use as an advocate for outdoor education initiatives in Scotland.

I look forward to learning alongside you on your upcoming adventure!

Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.
