30th March to 2nd April 2018

We are going to be based at a recently renovated hostel in the SYHA network for three nights as we explore the area.  We are planning to mainly explore on two feet as there is a great selection of walks in the locality, from bimbles round lochs to full on mountain days for the mountain goats in the group.

Check out the tabs below for more information on how to get up here and what to bring.

What's going to happen?

Friday evening:

We have the ODL buffet and this is also an opportunity to catch up with other ODLers you may have not seen for a while or meet new guys. If this is your first event, don't worry as you will be made very welcome.

There will also be a briefing to let you know what activities are planned for the weekend.

Saturday & Sunday:

We have a full two days exploring the area, the landscape being a mix of rough coastline with occasional beaches contrasting with a couple of large and well known ranges of mountains just inland from where we are staying.

Mountains! To the south is Torridon with Liathach, Beinn Alligin and Beinn Eighe - to the east is the Fisherfield area and An Teallach.

For those of a lower altitude disposition there are walks along various sections of coastline, along Loch Maree and in the Poolewe area.

Inverewe Gardens (£10.50/ free for NTS members)

Glass Bottom sealife boat tours (£18.50)

If the weather turns nasty we could do indoor climbing at the local leisure centre

Or just chill in the Badachro Inn


Time to clean the hostel and head home. There may be a short walk of an hour or two duration in the area for those who are in less of a rush to get away.
