  • Enjoy a full day ascent of the Ben Nevis peak in Scotland along the Ledge Route.

  • Bask in gorgeous views of the Scottish Highlands from the summit.

  • The Ledge Route is one of the easier routes to the summit of the peak.


There are several different routes you can take to the summit of Ben Nevis (1,345m). On this full-day trip, I would like to guide you along one of the easiest of those routes, the Ledge Route.

The Ledge Route will take you up the peak along its North face. When you reach the summit, you will indulge in truly breathtaking views.

Despite being one of the easier routes to the summit of Ben Nevis, the Ledge Route is long and will take all day. As a result, participants on this trip should be in good physical shape. There are also some sections that require some scrambling. Furthermore, the more difficult areas of the climb can easily be avoided if you wish.

Climbing Ben Nevis in Scotland is an unforgettable experience. Because the peak is the highest in the entire United Kingdom, there are definitely some bragging rights to be gained when reaching the summit. To join me on this full-day adventure, just send me a request. I look forward to guiding you.

I can also take you to the summit of Ben Nevis along the more challenging Tower Ridge route.

About the guide

guide profile img

I am a fully qualified Mountaineering Instructor based in Fort William, on the west coast of the Scottish Highlands.
I have been guiding in the UK for 10 years and chose the Scottish Highlands due to their remote feel and beauty. Rock climbing, Ice climbing, mixed climbing and more can be done in this area and it is all so accessible.

We offer a wide range of trips with Ben Nevis guiding, the Skye Cuillin ridge and Glencoe guiding amongst our more popular trips.
