These are walks which will take a full day and will require a good level of fitness they take 8-9 hours and we meet at the start, if they are one way transport will be provided back to the start. All these walks include morning and afternoon tea and a full picnic lunch.
This long day will take you into an area rarely visited nowadays. Some 200 years ago, communities would leave the lower glens and take their stock up on to the high moors to spend the summers at the shielings.
The walk starts near Stronmilchan and follows the Glen and River Strae. as we approach the Bealach eas nan Cabar we start to see the clusters of shielings which belonged to the McGregors and then the Campbell until they were driven out during the highland clearances.
We climb over the Bealach and then make our way down to toward Loch Tulla, passing more shielings on the way. It’s hard to imagine, in this day and age, what it might have been like to spend the summers in these remote places, but on a warm and quiet day, you find yourself wishing you could!
We shoud see red deer on this walk and many of the high moor dwelling birds as well as the possibility of an occasional eagle.
The walk is around 12 miles along some landrover tracks and untracked moors. There are many streams to cross. It shoud take around 8 -9 hours.
Crenan an glen ure
This is a long day of remote mountains and wooded glens.
We start the day from Druimabhuic by making the long climb up to Corie Buidhe which is a climb of 1800 feet. This takes you round the base of Beinn Sgulaird and from here we head north over the watershed to the dramatic cleft of Glen Ure where we start a long staedy downhill track towards Glen Creran. The last 5 miles is relatively flat through a wooded river valley
This walk takes you into the midst of the Argyll hills without actually climbing a mountain. The hills usually have plenty of red deer grazing and goats, whilst in the woodland you are more likely to see roe deer. Bird life is quite diverse from the small woodland birds through to raptors. We may be lucky and even see a red squirrel.
This walk is around 13 miles over landrover tracks and hill paths – it will take about 8-9 hours.
