West Coast Mountain Guides provide private mountain guides in the Scottish Highlands around Lochaber and the Glencoe Ridges, and on the Isle of Skye. If you’ve been looking for an alternative to an existing mountaineering course or guided mountain walk, hiring a private guide could be for you.
Engaging a private mountain guide provides you with greatest flexibility, as we will arrange an itinerary, date and location that suits you and matches your goals. West Coast Mountain Guides, Scotland will take the time to talk to you about your aspirations, your current level of ability and your previous mountaineering experience and develop a bespoke programme that allows you to develop your skills progressively and at a suitable pace.
All the mountain guides, instructors and leaders that we employ for all of our courses are all very active mountaineers and climbers. All have climbed and walked extensively throughout the UK, and many have been on adventurous expeditions around the world. With such a wealth of experience, we will make sure that we find the right professional for you.
Private mountain guiding and instruction ratios will depend on the type of activity requested. We keep group sizes small, and there will be no more than 4 people on mountaineering and climbing activities involving ropework. These small group sizes ensure that everyone receives the support and instruction they need to reach their goals safely and confidently. We are of course more than happy to private mountain guiding on a one-to-one basis
