• Day 1 Arrival in Kingshouse

    From your point of arrival, use the public transport information we provide to make the journey to Kingshouse.

  • Day 2 Kingshouse to Kinlochleven

    16 Km 4-6 Hrs 330 Metres

    Today’s hike features a climb known locally as The Devil’s Staircase. With a name like that, it’s safe to assume that your legs are going to get a good work-out! But, here’s a little secret – it’s not that bad. And the views from the top over the Ben Nevis Mountain range more than make up for it.

  • Day 3 Kinlochleven to Lundavra

    12.5 Km 3-5 Hrs 300 Metres

    A steep climb out of Kinlochleven gets the adrenaline flowing pretty quickly but as always, the spectacular scenery is adequate compensation. After the initial climb, an old military road rambles gently through the magnificent Glen Nevis valley. You will be picked up from an information board in Lundavra and brought to your accommodation in Fort William.

  • Day 4 Lundavra to Fort William

    12 Km 3-5 Hrs 200 Metres

    Returning to Lundavra, you set off towards the formidable peak of Ben Nevis which looms before you. But don’t worry, you’re on the Gentle Hike – you can admire it without climbing it! Instead, you follow quiet forest paths which eventually descend into the town of Fort William.

  • Day 5 Departure from Fort William
