Glen Coe Mountaineering Experience
We are passionate about the natural world and its beautiful wild places.
We have a deep respect and appreciation for the environment and a love for adventure and silent human-powered sports.
These wild mountains are the remains of a super volcano and sit within a designated national nature reserve.
We hike up through the Three Sisters on mountain paths crossing rivers via waterfalls and clear mountain pools all the while surrounded by a complex mass of dramatic crags, ridges and summits.
We aim to summit Munros such as Buachaille Etive Beag, Stop Coire nan Lochan and Bidean nam Bian, which at 1150 meters is the highest in Glen Coe and Argyle.
The views from the top are breathtaking and on a clear day you can see out to the Isle of Skye in the Inner Hebrides.
Recent Glen Coe Mountaineering Trips
Lucky enough this year to go out with Ocean Vertical winter mountaineering in Glen Coe, paddle boarding in East Lothian and just recently rock climbing outdoors in Northumberland. Each experience has been an awesome day! Learning valuable skills like navigation in the winter to learning how to safely climb on rock from Stevie and Adrian who are both great at what they do. Loads of experience and knowledge in the outdoors. Looking forward to hopefully more adventure in Scotland soon.
Thoroughly enjoyed another trip mountaineering to stunning Glen Coe with the highly experienced team at Ocean Vertical. With transparent and on-going risk assessment, Stevie and Adrian strive to provide their adventurers with the best experience in the conditions available – adapting where necessary with their extensive knowledge of the area. Whether it’s been paddle boarding, climbing or mountaineering in Scotland, I have always had a safe and truly rewarding experience. Can’t wait to get out with them again!
