A long and arduous, but not technically difficult, walk taking in no less than seven Munros!

Yes, with minimal descent between the peaks the South Glen Shiel Ridge it is possible, with an early start, to bag all seven peaks in a day: -

  • Creag a' Mhaim (947m)
  • Druim Shionnach (987m)
  • Aonach Air Chrith (1021m)
  • Maol Chinn-dearg (981m)
  • Sgùrr an Doire Leathain (1010m)
  • Sgùrr an Lochain (1004m)
  • Creag nan Dàmh (918m)

We'll be following the route described on WalkHighlands.

We also have another classic ridge walk planned for Sunday 28th August - The Saddle, Forcan Ridge and Sgùrr na Sgìne - why not make a weekend of it and join us for both? If doing so you should make your own accommodation arrangements. There are various accommodation options in and around the area, including Ratagan Youth Hostel, The Cluanie Inn, Kintail Lodge Hotel, Glen Shiel Campsite or various AirBnBs nearby.
