You will carry a full pack in and out, for 8 miles. In between, there will be 3 days of challenging mountain (Munro) walks

This is a challenging event, requiring a good level of fitness and stamina. We will be a long way from civilisation, so you need to be comfortable in a remote location and out of phone signal for the best part of 5 days. 

This is a series of three consecutive mountain day walks, but the walk in and out are both 8 miles, effectively making it a five day trip. 

Nestled in the North West Highlands of Scotland lies a remote hostel which will be our home for 4 nights and 3 full days. There are loads of mountains to explore, we'll be spoilt for choice. Each day's activities will be determined on weather conditions. As you see from the event page photos, the location is stunning.

This is not a catered event. Although the hostel sells some very limited supplies, you will be expected to carry all the food and drink you need for the whole trip. 

This event is only for people who are comfortable carrying a full pack in and out, and being off grid the whole time. You may get a signal on mountain tops! A good level of fitness and stamina is essential.

What's the deal? Book yourself on! We have a dorm of 10 beds to ourselves, but the other rooms are open to other guests, so we will not be alone!! 

Which munros might we climb? There are no fewer than 32 munros on the OS sheet for this corner of Scotland, the most on any sheet!! Don't worry, we're not going to do them all. We'll save some for another visit! 

What's the plan re food for the duration of our stay? You need to bring in all you need: breakfasts, lunches, dinners, snacks, tea, coffee, alcohol. See later for a link to the hostel's Web page for some information about what the hostel sells. You will have to carry out all your rubbish at the end of our stay. There are no bin lorries out here. 

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.
