The Lochaber and Lorn Ramblers area  is probably the best walking area in the whole of the British Isles. It includes Ben Nevis, the highest peak in the UK, the spectacular Glen Coe and the  islands of Skye, Mull, Rum and Eigg.  

We extend a warm welcome to all new walkers, visitors and guests. Pllease have a look at our list of walks, choose a walk, get in touch with the relevant walk leader and come along!

Our day-trips include scrambles such as the Aonach Eagach ridge in Glencoe and hill-walks to  Munros in our local ranges such as Glen Nevis, the Mamores, Glen Shiel  or in more distant areas such as Kintail or Knoydart. The Corbetts, over the Corran Ferry, in Ardgour and Ardnamurchan are also favourite days out.

Not all our outings demand super fitness, we also enjoy low-level  walks in the area. Gentler walks can be found along the West Highland Way, Great Glen Way, Caledonian canal etc. While the islands of Kerrera and Lismore in Loch Linnhe are within easy reach by ferry. Another spectacular low-level walk is along the fjord-like Loch Hourn. Interesting days out combine a cruise along Loch Shiel or Loch Nevis with a walk.  Another is a ramble up Glen Stockdale, in Appin, with a chance to visit some of  the deepest caves in Scotland.

Special-interest walks are  organised and include hunting for rare orchids or butterflies, watching eagles and bats and deer rutting and, in the autumn, collecting edible fungi. Other walks include archaelogical sites such as standing stones, hill forts, clan fortresses, such as Castle Tioram in Moidart, and  19th Century Clearance villages.

We also have a programme of training courses which invariably includes courses on Navigation, Winter Skills, Leaders' Skills and Scrambling.
