Experience Via Ferrata - One of Scotland’s Most Thrilling Outdoor Activities.

Outdoor Adventure Scotland

Welcome to the wonderful world of Via Ferrata or literally  “Iron Way”. Via Ferratas were metal supported climbing routes used in Northern Italy traveling over the Alps by soldiers during the war. Today they’re best known as an outdoor leisure sport enjoyed over Italy and the Alps, and now – Scotland!

Vertical descents are extremely proud to be the first Scottish organisation to build our very own Via Ferrata right here in Fort William. Set next to the third biggest waterfall in Scotland, the Grey Mairs Tail, the view is truly spectacular. If you’re looking for what to do in Fort William – look no further than this one of a kind activity. What’s more it’ perfectly safe and you don’t have to be a trained mountaineer to get involved!
