Private Guiding Lochaber and Glencoe

Glencoe and Lochaber are situated in the West Highlands. 

Fort William is a good base for exploring the area. 

Lying in the shadow of Ben Nevis it has a large variety of accommodation, bars and restaurants to suit your budget. 

It is also accessible via a very good bus and railway network. 

Ideal for the environmental conscious traveller. 

The town itself is a junction to different areas in the Highlands. 

Indeed its possible to visit quite a variety of landscapes within a short bus, train or car journey. 

From the big skies of Rannoch Moor and Loch Ossian to the mountain grandeur of Glencoe. 

Pristine beaches and seldom climbed mountains lie to the West.

Steeped in history this area of the Highlands deserves more than the mandatory photo stops. 

Suggestions for family guided walks are my Steall Falls and Glen Nevis Walk or my Glenfinnan Eco Tour

Another option is to visit one of the numerous bothies in the area for a picnic lunch and a wee tidy up. Learning about the valuable work the Mountain Bothy Association do while we are there. 

Fort William is also the end and start of quite a few long distance routes. Whether you want to do the West Highland Way, Great Glen Way or Cape Wrath Trail. 

We can discover these routes together on our guided walk. We can hike a section for the day or do the whole thing. 

Its also possible to hire me for vehicle support, logistics and transportation of luggage. 

Introductory hikes for the more adventurous in Glencoe are the Pap of Glencoe and Buachaille Etive Beag. 

For moderate hikes check out Buachaille Etive Mor. 

For the more experienced and fit hikers Bidean Nam Bian and Buachaille Etive Mor make a excellent day out. 

The Mamores and the classic Ring of Steall are well worthy of a explore and some Munro bagging. 

Please get in touch with me directly to arrange your trip. 

Transport is not included in the price. However to reduce environmental and traffic impact in the area. I am happy to provide a lift from Fort William. 

Giving you the chance to sit back and enjoy the scenery.
