  • Day 2 Kingshouse to Kinlochleven

    16 Km 4-6 Hrs 550 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 Fort William

    25 Km 6-8 Hrs 500 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. Eventually, you turn a corner and the formidable peak of Ben Nevis lies ahead of you. But that’s for another day – you descend instead along forest paths towards the town of Fort William.

  • Day 4 Departure from Fort William
