O que você fará

We the start day meeting at the Ben Nevis Inn. Here we will meet and greet, discussing the kit and weather for the day. The journey starts, with a gentle introduction to the Pony Track, built in 1883, with plenty of history about the area along the way. Ascending steadily, we reach half way up approximately 2 hours into the journey, with a good opportunity to feed, and refill water bottles at the Red Burn.
Now we start to ascend the famous Zig Zags, gaining height rapidly, along with the extending views across Ardnamurchan to the Great Glen. The plateau will be reached, followed by a steady walk to the summit, arriving in about 4 hours from the start.
There is plenty to see on the summit whilst we eat (Weather allowing). The ruins of the Weather Observatory (1883-1904), The old "Hotel", and the iron frame that held Clement Wragge's observation instruments which pre dates the Observatory. If the weather allows, we can see the rest of Scotland...Mountains in every direction.
We will descend the same path back to The Ben Nevis Inn, returning at approximately 5pm.
We will take a series of photographs to document your day, which will become available to you as part of our service.

I have a strong background in the UK Mountains, having lived and worked in The Lake District and Mountain Guiding in The Scottish Highlands, using my Winter Mountain Leader Qualification extensively.
I have been a Hillwalker ever since I can remember, which progressed to Scrambling, then Rock Climbing, and finally got into Winter Mountaineering, which has been my favourite "Sport" for over 18 years.
I have gained a wealth of outdoor and instructing experience over the years, from leading Tourists up onto the UK's highest Peak, and instructed on all the skills required for safe Mountain Travel, whether in Summer or Winter. I was also a Hill Going Member of the LDSAMRA (Mountain Rescue)…

We felt very reassured to have Rich as our guide on what we had heard might be a tricky experience. He was very attentive and able to read very well our abilities at every stage and adapted and set pace accordingly. Rich is good company and a fount of knowledge about the local area and about hill walking and mountaineering in general based on his extensive experience and qualifications. I would have no hesitation in hiring Rich again for another trek.

Our hike up Ben Nevis was a day we will never forget. Not only was the sun shining the entire time but our guide Mark became a fast friend! He shared tips, expertise, stories, and by the end we shared a pint at the bottom to celebrate an amazing day. He was knowledgeable, friendly, and just the nicest guy! Thank you Mark for making our trip to Ben Nevis one we will never forget. We are framing the selfie we took at the top! Cheers!
