Ben Nevis North Face

From the CIC Hut

At Omega Guiding we are all about offering the best adventure experiences in Scotland.  Mountain Bike Guiding and Coaching, Ben Nevis Winter Guides, Scrambling, Ice Climbing and Winter Skills courses!

Omega Guiding was established to offer great experiences in the Scottish mountains. Based at the foot of Ben Nevis on the stunning West Coast of Scotland we are experts in all things mountain related. Tower Ridge and Ledge Route on Ben Nevis are some of our favourite days out!

Throughout the winter we run winter mountaineering, ice climbing and winter skills courses. Ben Nevis, Glencoe, Torridon and the Cairngorms are all amazing places to learn and progress your skills and we will use the venue best suited to your course and aims.

Fort William is where we are based but there is too much of Scotland to limit ourselves to one place. Cuillin Ridge traverses, a guided An Teallach scrambling day, Liathach or Ben Alligin in Torridon on foot or experience the phenomenal mountain biking there is to offer in the North West instead. The Achanashellach descent is one you won't forget in a hurry!
