Guided Nevis Sea to Summit walking holiday New

Nevis Sea to Summit walking holiday

Between relatively inaccessible Loch Nevis and Ben Nevis the highest mountain in the UK, lies a string of interlinking wild routes that makes a perfect walking challenge.

We’ll take a boat to near the head of Loch Nevis to get started, and then cross wild passes day by day, reaching Loch Arkaig, Glenfinnan, Loch Linnhe and Glen Nevis (with the help of another boat), before making our mountain ascent to ‘Big Ben’, Ben Nevis itself.

This will be an unforgettable experience made possible by the renowned C-N-Do planning and support system.

Ferry Journeys

There is always a slight possibility on trips involving ferries, that severe weather conditions or other reasons will prevent a scheduled sailing. However unlikely this may be on this trip, it may not be possible to keep to the planned timings. Any additional expenses incurred through changes in the ferry schedule will not be met by C-N-Do Scotland.
