Some classic areas include:

  • Snowdonia and the Lake District National Parks offer some superb high-level wild camping.
  • The North Pennines circuit of Meldon Hill and Cow Green reservoir takes in High Cup Nick and the highest summit of the Pennines - Crossfell at 893m / 2,930ft.
  • The Cairngorms offer an almost unsurpassed area of spectacular scenery in a vast area.
  • The Fisherfields have a classic 5 Munro circuit to the south of Ullapool in the North West. Nearby is the mighty An Teallach and the 9 Fannaich Munros - also worthy of a trek.
  • From Corrour railway station (famous from the film Trainspotting) it is possible to trek back to Fort William over 2-3 nights over the Grey Corries, Aonnachs and Ben Nevis or the Mammores.
  • Glen Affric is perhaps one of the most spectacular glens in Scotland with some of the oldest Caledonian Pine Forests - with Glen Shiel, Knoydart and Loch Mullardoch nearby.
  • And many, many more...

 

Whatever your goal, we can see if we can help you achieve it. If we can't - we'll recommend someone who can!

We can offer a number of bespoke hill and mountain walking activities such as guided walks, treks and wilderness camping in the British hills and mountains. We can recommend options depending on where you might be staying if you are visiting Britain or have never been to the area before. We don't have any of the great mountain ranges such as the Alps or Andes, but being on the Atlantic we certainly do get the weather. It's not unheard of to experience blizzards on the summer solstice so a lot will depend on the weather, your level of experience, fitness and your aims so please get in touch to discuss if you're not sure.


We can make good suggestions as to a great experience and day(s) out or if you have a particular goal or challenge in mind.


The Scottish Highlands are an enormous area, but let us know where you are intending to stay and we can look at options with you.
