The Scottish Three Peaks

What to Expect

The Scottish Three Peaks is a serious undertaking that needs a very good level of physical fitness and mental strength to achieve. After all, we are climbing the three highest mountains in the UK, back to back. It is also important to prepare yourself for ascending and descending steep terrain as much of this challenge is not on a trail or path.

People pitching themselves against this challenge will need to ensure that they have a solid foundation of fitness and confidence on their feet in the hills. This will give you and your team the very best chance of success. The Scottish Three Peaks is an incredible adventure but not for beginers!

If you have any other question about the Scottish Three Peaks or how to prepare, don’t hesitate to get in touch.


The Three Peaks Plan

 Day 1 –Meet your group and your guide at Edinburgh Waverly Train Station and transfer up to Aviemore. Check in to your accommodation, listen to the evening briefing, and go through the equipment checks with your mountain leader.

Day 2 {Part 1} –  Breakfast and then the short drive to Cairngorm Mountain (aiming for a 7am start).  Now the adventure begins! The back to back ascent of Ben Macdui and Braeriach which includes navigating some serious terrain. We will head off Braeriach through the Chalamain Gap and back to the bus. We will then make the drive across Scotland to Ben Nevis.

Day 2 {Part 2} –

We will undertake a night ascent of Ben Nevis, which takes around 6-8 hours. For those of you that have hiked Ben Nevis before, you know it is not an easy task. We leave the car park that is almost sea level and head all the way up to the UK’s tallest mountain.

Day 3 – We will be off Ben Nevis in the early hours of the third day. We can drop groups either at Perth or back in Edinburgh.

Outdoor and Adventurous Activities Edinburgh

Intrepidus Outdoors is an adventure tourism and outdoor education provider based in Edinburgh. We specialise in canyoning, coasteering, mountain biking and mountaineering, and deliver these adventurous experiences across Scotland and the North of England. The experiences that we provide take clients into some of the most exquisite, incredible and extreme environments the UK has to offer.

Our values as a adventure tourism provider and a business

Our values reflect those of a business started by a small group of rock climbers and mountain bikers. The experiences that we have had adventuring, and our passion for the outdoors, has led us to choose a lifestyle dedicated to sharing our love for the outdoors with others. The approach that we take to the experiences that we provide, and the business that we run, is that of sustainability, and an unapologetic quest for quality.

For us at Intrepidus Outdoors, we recognise that our experiences kayaking in clean rivers, surfing on unpolluted beaches and climbing frozen waterfalls have contributed to who we are as people. Therefore, protecting the planet so that the next generation of adventurers can have their own experiences, is hugely important for us. We believe that for people, communities and businesses to make the choice to minimise their impact on our planet, they must first value the planet that we have. We feel that the best way for people to value our blue planet, is to have first hand quality experiences in nature. They can then see the beauty of a forest, feel the power of an ocean and learn to love what is outside our towns and cities, so that they then fight to protect them. We strive to through the products that we deliver make a small difference to peoples understanding of the impact that they have on our world.

Our experiences adventuring have made us who we are and Intrepidus Outdoors is a reflection of us. We provide real adventurous experience that we hope you will cherish.
