This is my Guided Walks Programme 2023 and bookings are now live for all trips. I have only included walks from April onwards because my winter courses have already been posted.
I’m especially hoping to entice walkers into the wild Corbetts in the Strontian area. Focussing on Sgurr Dhomhnuill, Beinn Resipol and Garbh Bheinn. These are undeniably magnificent hills with excellent walking!
The Coulin Forest hills lie to the south of Glen Torridon and are often overlooked in favour of their northern counterparts. Even specifically made maps for Torridon don’t include them. I feel this may be a particular gripe of mine, but Sgorr Ruadh is one of the finest peaks in the Scottish Highlands.
In the days when I guided for Steven Fallon before he closed his guiding company we did a “Kintail Bookends” trip. I couldn’t bring myself to call it the same. Instead I will be visiting the Sgurr nan Conbhairean group of munros, Beinn Fhada & A’Ghlas-bheinn on my Kintail & Cluanie weekend. These hills offer some wonderful walking and fingers crossed for some spring snow! 🤞
Then to maximise the long daylight hours in June will be a Bike & Hiking long weekend in Braemar. Firstly exploring the remote Carn an Fhidhleir and An Sgarsoch before heading for Glas Tulaichean and Carn an Righ. Finally we will traverse Carn Bhac, Beinn Iutharn Mhor and An Socach. But just when you thought that was it there is a extra day on offer to climb Mount Keen via Glen Tanar.
A long weekend climbing the 5 Bridge of Orchy Munros and enjoy the summer weather. It will split them into 3 days to make life easier and give us options for Beinn Mhanach. I have a day walk up Ben Macdui and Cairngorm as well to for July.
Finally I have a long weekend walking in the Beinn Dearg hills near Ullapool. These are some of my favourite hills and the summer flowers should be looking good in August. While the first and last days access the hills from the A835 to Ullapool the second day will be different. Because Seana Bhraigh is such a wonderful sight from the northern approach we will jouney to Oykel Bridge instead. It’s still a long day, but well worth it in my opinion anyway.
Guided Walks Dates & Links
