Fort William Highlands mountain
Based in Fort William The Highland Mountain business provides and delivers bespoke training, mentoring and guiding in the Scottish Highlands for individuals, teams and people.
Our goals tend to be to produce a specialist and total solution that offers you confidence and reassurance in our ability both on and off the slope. We aim to offer more than simply helpful information whom gets you safely from A to B, for all of us that is the absolute minimal requirement.
Our targets tend to be to offer a pleasurable but unforgettable knowledge which is both safe and interesting. With your guidance we tailor our solution to fulfil your unique requirements and desires, ranging from a quick interesting abseil to a multi time walking trip. We make an effort to share our understanding and knowledge of the outside environment so that your future excursions take advantage of our experience.
Our teachers tend to be highly experienced and technically skilled in the mountain environment, with years of additional experience coaching individuals through challenging circumstances on private development courses in in the open air. These are generally always keen to give their understanding, whether it is towards flora and fauna, location, geology, the ever changing landscape or perhaps the best spot for eating and take in, camp or locations to have your after that mountain time.
