Aonach Eagach & Gearr Aonach Itinerary

Day 1 - Arrive in Fort William
This is your chance to get to the start of the holiday by making your way to Fort William. We will have accommodation arranged for you so you just need to turn up and tell them your name. Before your trip you will receive some information about the town as well as some ideas of where you may wish to eat.

Day 2 Gearr Aonach
While the order of these two days will be somewhat weather dependant, your first day of scrambling will usually be the zigzags of Gearr Aonach. First, you will be collected from your accommodation by your instructor, giving you the chance to talk through what the weekend will have in store. This grade 1 scramble will be your introduction to scrambling in Glencoe by reaching the summit of Gearr Aonach, one of the most iconic peaks in the area.
