Come and enjoy an incredibly scenic hiking tour around the Highlands of Scotland in Glencoe with experienced and certified guide Scott.
Explore the beautiful area of Glencoe in the Scottish Highlands.
Visit great spots like the Lost Valley and the Pap of Glencoe.
There are half-day, as well as full day options for this trek.
During this hiking trip, which can last for a half-day, full day, or more, I would like to guide you to the best spots around Glencoe. When it comes to selection, you can rest assured there is a lot to see, do, explore and enjoy in this beautiful natural area.
There are an assortment of stunning Munros, which are mountains in Scotland that exceed 3,000 feet in height. Other incredible highlights you will get trek to during this trip include The Lost Valley and Bidean nam Bian, which is the highest point in Argyll, and offers amazing views of the west coast. There is also the Buachaille Etive Mor, which has two Munros, as well as the Pap of Glencoe.
The difficulty level of this trek will depend on you. If you wish to visit the more arduous spots, the higher the difficulty level and the more experience you’ll require. However, if you wish to enjoy a more casual, exploratory trek, I can accommodate you without any problem. Regardless of where we go though, participants on this trip should be in good physical condition.
Glencoe is an area that really exemplifies why Scotland, particularly the Highlands, is so beautiful. To explore the area for yourself, just send me a request. I look forward to guiding you.
Would you like to climb the highest peak not just in Scotland, but in the entire United Kingdom? Then join me on this full day ascent of Ben Nevis along the relatively easy Ledge Route.
There are comfortable accommodation options around Glencoe that I would be happy to recommend to you.
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.
Great day out with Scott and an amazing climb and scramble.
What a fantastic trip ! This was my first time to use crampons and scrabbling. The pre walk information and communication was 10/10 Scott and Malcolm were extremely professional with a great knowledge of the mountain. I felt safe yet appropriately challenged throughout which made for an unforgettable day. The company was top class too. I could not recommend climbing Ben Nevis with Kirkhope mountaineering highly enough ! Thanks so much Paula
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
Great day going up Tower Ridge with Scott Kirkhope. Loved it!!
Scott is friendly and very knowledgeable, if you’re looking to get into the mountains Scott’s the man, he’ll keep you safe while making you smile. First Class.
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

I contacted Kirkhope mountaineering looking for a guide to take me along a more adventurous route up Ben Nevis. Scott responded to my voicemail very quickly and was able to talk me through the various options and offer guidance on difficulty, exposure etc and on the required equipment. This along with all the other communucation during the trip was courteous and efficient. All the guides are MIC qualified so you know you are getting the real deal. My guide was friendly, efficient and extremely knowledgeable which made me feel safe and confident throughout the whole trip. I throughly recommend Kirkwood mountaineering to anyone wanting a first class guiding experience. Excellent.
Great time walking up Ben Nevis with Kirk\'s help. It rained the entire time and was unbelievably gusty, but with Kirk\'s expertise I was able to complete the journey safely!!!
