Šta ćete raditi

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 went up the mountain with Stuart, who was very experienced and walks up Ben Nevis often. He gave a helpful overview of what the walk would be like, with useful breakdowns going up saying how far through we’d made it, and made good conversation with everyone in the group. He gave interesting bits of information about the local area, wildlife, and plants, and practical walking advice. He also planned regular stops for food, drink, and adding or removing layers of clothing. Despite the poor weather, we had an enjoyable trip. As someone who is new to hill walking, being guided up Ben Nevis boosted my confidence and made the trip enjoyable. However, the path is clearly marked and easily manageable for those with more outdoor experience.

Reach was absolutely amazing! He’s not only full of knowledge and experience but also fun and interesting to be around. I thoroughly enjoyed our hike to Ben Nevis with Reach who is very attentive to everyone in his group. Thank you Richard for starting me on the map reading track! :D Can’t wait to get my hands on some maps to practice and feel more confident when planing next loan adventures. Great guide and a mentor!

This has been the best thing I’ve done this year, what a privilege to climb Ben Nevis with great support, and safety. Richard was an exceptional guide, who cared for everyone’s welfare. He also provided us with his knowledge of local history, the general landscape, names of other mountains and wild flowers. He m made sure that everyone was safe, and encouraged us to keep going. I would recommend this trip to everyone. I will never forget this trip.

The guide was so lovely and so helpful, especially with the long descent. Very reassuring to be with someone who knows the tracks. I loved being shown the West Highland Way from the summit view.

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.
