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 both pre-arranged trips (see our Upcoming Walks page) and 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 of my previous adventures over on the Blog or have a look at my FAQ’s. 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 don’t see a pre-arranged walk in the area you want to visit, please get in touch to discuss. I mostly advertise trips from April – October as this is 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.
