FOINAVEN TRAVERSE

Foinaven is one of the great ridges of far north Scotland. It is more a mountain range than a single peak and towers over the surrounding summits almost to Munro height. This day will aim to traverse the ridge from Achfary in the southeast to Gualin in the northwest.

This will be a full day out in the mountains along a fairly narrow ridge with rough, rocky going underfoot requiring some care and a good level of fitness.

FISHERFIELD FIVE

7th – 9th July 2019 | £160/person | Spaces Available

This trip will be a 3-day wild-camping trip taking in all five of the Fisherfield Munros, considered to be the remotest Munros, and a sixth top, Beinn a’ Chlaidheimh (formerly a Munro, but now a Corbett). These are mountains of real character in a wild setting and offer one of Scotland’s best mountain journeys.

Good paths lead into the hills, followed by rough, mostly pathless ground on the hill with some steep ascents over rocky ground. There are at least three major river crossings. A good level of fitness will be required to undertake the long distances covered in this expedition and extra kit and food will need to be carried for the overnight stops.
