Getting out into the mountains for several days can be one of the best ways to experience the mountains. Being out in the hills at dawn and dusk gives you the chance to experience sights and sounds that are usually missed on day walks. Camping really gives the chance to connect with the environment you’re walking through and be out at the times when the hills are quieter. It can also open up opportunities to do longer, more ambitious routes, or add a few extra summits that might be beyond the scope of your average day hike. Being self-sufficient in remote country for many days is also highly rewarding and can add an extra element of adventure to your trip.
I offer bespoke adventures to fit with your personal ambitions. Some of my favourite areas to go backpacking include Fisherfield, the Cairngorms, Glen Affric and Knoydart. These trips can either be aimed at climbing the mountains or walking through them. To find out more, check out some previous trips over on the Blog. If you’d like to book a trip, please head over to the Booking Info page.
I also cater for trips in other parts of Scotland, so if you have a particular area that you want to visit, please get in touch to discuss. April – October is often the best time of the year for camping in Scotland. During these months the hills are mainly snow-free and the temperatures are a little warmer! However, if you’d like to do a trip during the winter months, do get in touch and we can discuss a suitable itinerary.
