North Face of Ben Nevis Walk

Be blown away by the size scale and rock architecture of Britain’s highest cliffs on the the side of Ben Nevis that the tourists never see! In this walk lasting around 5 hrs. The walk is 8km with 700m of ascent. The majestic North Face of Ben Nevis is a mecca for climbers in summer and in winter and its easiest to see why. We may even spot the occasional crazy skier attempting to ski one of the Ben’s long gullies. Dramatic scenery and views out along Loch Eil to the Rhum Cuillin the walk is never dull. On this quieter side of Ben Nevis there is also the chance that we might see some Deer or even the endangered Golden Eagle or Sea Eagle. The walk will be at a chilled out pace so plenty time for photo stops along the way. The walk is on good paths and is a good option for people who don’t want to reach the summit of Ben Nevis. Up and Doon also offers a private guiding service.Please do feel free to get in touch regarding availability and pricing. Family and group discount available.
