3 consecutive days of mountain walks

This is a challenging event, requiring a good level of fitness and stamina.

This is a series of three consecutive mountain day walks, and 4 nights self catering accommodation in a hostel that normally sleeps 30, but we have sole use! 

Which munros might we climb? There are loads of munros in this corner of Scotland. Some require a long walk in from the nearest road access. Some circuits can see us visit two or more in one day. Names such as An Teallach, Sgurr Mor, Beinn Dearg stir the mind. You don't have to reach the heights of munro status to have a stunning day as one of Scotland's most iconic mountains is well short of munro status but will stay in your memory for ever. This is Suilven. 

Our location gives us options for alternative days out if weather conditions are against us. 

One thing to bear in mind is we will almost certainly need to use cars each day so we shiuld be mindful of guidance on car sharing and chipping in for fuel if using others' cars. 

What's the plan? We have sole use of the hostel which is located in a small town with access to food stores, cafes, restaurants etc. We'll gather on the Saturday and have a welcome briefing and discuss options based on the weather and our abilities in the group. 

Great opportunity to sharpen your hill and mountain nav skills. If you're thinking of becoming a mountain leader, or just want to sharpen your navigation skills, there will be loads of chances.
