About Alba Ascents 

Alba is the Gaelic word for Scotland, our job is to guide and educate people on the Scottish mountains during their ascent to the summit. We are a mountain guiding business based in Fort William which gives us a good central location in the Scottish highlands, we operate all over Scotland taking people up popular mountains such as Ben Nevis, and less known ones in areas such as Skye upon request.

All of our guides are qualified and insured by the Mountain Training Association, which is the collection of awarding bodies for skills courses and qualifications in walking, climbing and mountaineering in the UK. There are no legal requirements for guides to be qualified or insured in the UK but Alba Ascents does not believe this is safe practice, hence why all of our guides are qualified and insured.






Climb the mountain not to plant your flag, but to embrace the challenge, enjoy the air and behold the view. Climb it so you can see the world, not so the world can see you.
