Ben Nevis Guides - a guided walk up Ben Nevis

Over 150,000 people walk or climb Ben Nevis every year, and many of these do so either on their own or in small groups. The highest mountain in the United Kingdom is a very accessible mountain and people can be caught out near the summit when the weather changes for the worse. During periods of heavy rain and bad visibility, navigation skills using a map and compass are very important to safely descend from the summit.

A simple solution to this problem is to hire the services of an experienced and friendly Ben Nevis mountain guide - and enjoy a guided walk up Ben Nevis in the company of someone who will know almost every foot of the way, and be able to add an extra dimension to your day out by offering tips and hints, and pointing out landmarks and interesting things on the route. A Ben Nevis guide will have a first-aid certificate, mountain guiding qualifications, and most important of all - experience - so you can enjoy your day without having to worry about anything. A guided walk up Ben Nevis on a good day will be a memory to last forever...
