Glen Coe is a place of high drama and majestic splendour. The mountains rise sharply out of the glen and offer a classic Scottish Highlands landscape. Our walks will take in some of the highest peaks, including a number of Munroes. Our adventures may include the Mamores, the Pap of Glen Coe , Buachaille Etive Beag and Ben Nevis, the highest mountain in the UK.  The choice of walks will very much depend on the weather with lower level walks available where necessary.

If you haven’t walked in the Scottish mountains before, please be aware that they can be more challenging than other mountain areas in the UK, particularly in the amount of ascent, descent and roughness of terrain. Confidence on steep rocky slopes with easy scrambling is needed. A typical mountain day would include steep slopes on ascent and descent with loose rocks or scree and broad mountain ridges. Walks will generally be circular of 10 miles ( 17 km ) or less, with approximately 3000 feet ( 914 m ) to 4000 feet ( 1219 m ) of climbing. To have full flexibility in terms of timing, we will need to share transport to the start of each walk.

We stay at Inchree chalets, set in a beautiful location with easy access to the stunning mountains of Fort William and Glencoe. The chalets have 3 bedrooms and share a bathroom and kitchen. There will be a maximum of 4 women per chalet.

Special offer: extra night available on Mon 27 June, departing Tues 28 June. There is no walk or guide available on the last day of the holiday, Mon 27 but you are welcome to stay on at the chalet until Tuesday morning. This will provide an opportunity to relax, visit Fort William or enjoy the chalet and surroundings before heading home. This extra night is free of charge.
