One of the finest mountain walks in Britain links the Munros of Càrn Mòr Dearg and Ben Nevis, via the exposed CMD arete. The route throughout is spectacular, with breath-taking views of the Central and West Highlands, and the magnificent cliffs of Ben Nevis' north face.  

We'll be following the route described on WalkHighlands involving some easy scrambling and mild exposure.

Have a look at this video on YouTube for a preview of the route.

We also have another classic ridge walk planned for Sunday 17th July - The Ring of Steall (in reverse) - why not make a weekend of it and join us for both? If doing so you should make your own accommodation arrangements. There are various accommodation options in and around Fort William, including Glen Nevis YH, Independent Hostels and AirBnbs. Nav will be staying at the Alex MacIntyre Memorial Hut in North Ballachulish and there is also the highly recommended Corran Bunkhouse nearby.
