Weather & Avalanche Forecasts
Understanding the weather - both prior to and during your adventure - can help you to prepare appropriately and understand what conditions you will experience. This is crucial, particularly when planning a winter excursion. Below is a list of weather services we use often, as well as an avalanche forecast which features loads of educational tools and information - worth a read whether you are being guided or not!

Accommodation & Local Information
Although we do not provide accommodation ourselves, we are happy to give guidance and advice on where to stay. Below you will find links to pages dedicated to accommodation in Glen Coe, Fort William, Oban and Aviemore. Click on each to explore.
We are located 2 hours from Glasgow & Inverness airports, and 2½ hours from Edinburgh airport by car. There are daily buses from Glasgow which take slightly longer, and regular trains from Glasgow to Fort William, which on a good day is easily one of the most picturesque train journeys in the world.
We are only 30 minutes away from Fort William, which is the nearest town to our north, and Oban, the Gateway to the Isles, is some 60 minutes south - both along a stunning coastal drive.
Although we specialise in guiding in Lochaber, we are experienced and very knowledgeable of many other areas and are happy to travel to your desired destination.
