- Professional Mountain Guiding in Scotland's Far North


King Mountaineering has a range of walks planned over the coming year, with a variety of day walks, walking holidays and multi-day backpacking adventures in Scotland’s Far North. These trips aim to take in some of the area’s most spectacular landscapes and many of its wilder corners. Also on offer are a series of Wild Walks, shorter days with no technical difficulty – a great way to explore the wild and remote landscapes of the Far North for those with no prior hillwalking experience.

The table below shows our planned events for 2017. For more details about each trip, click on the link or to make a booking, please get in touch.

In addition to these scheduled walks, throughout the summer King Mountaineering will be offering a Walk and Wildlife collaboration with Caithness Wildlife Tours exploring the flora and fauna on a walk to the summit of Scotland’s most northerly munro.

And remember, bespoke guided trips to other hills and hill areas are also available, so if you see something on this page that you’re interested in but have other dates in mind, or you have a different route you’d like to tackle, just call or email to discuss.
