Introduction to Munros Week
Do you like the idea of climbing mountains, but don’t think you have the skills or knowledge to do it on your own? This is an opportunity for you to climb a minimum of three Munros during a week with a qualified Mountain Leader who will both guide and teach you.
Over the week you can learn basic hill walking skills including navigation and river crossings. You will also learn much about the flora and fauna and maybe a little history of the area you are in.
Time permitting we will meet up on Sunday evening to talk about what we will do and where we will go during your week.
On Monday we head for our first munro, with Tuesday as a rest day for you to recover and take in the memories of the previous day.
Wednesday we will tackle the second hill of the week – the choice of hill will depend on how you feel and what the weather will be doing. Thursday is another rest day for you to recover and reflect.
On Friday we will aim for one of the classic routes perhaps Glencoe, or the Cruachan horseshoe. Both of these routes include more than one munro.
This is a walking week, there is no rock climbing involved and although I do carry a rope it is not my intention to have to use it. You must have a good level of fitness for this trip.
I supply all food and drinks on the day, and you need to bring good boots, warm clothing and waterproofs.
Accommodation is not included.
Cost £120 per person (Maximum 5 people)

Remote Munros Camping trip
Remote Munros Camping Trip
This is a four day, three night trip to climb four of the more remote of Argyll’s mountains. On day one we walk in to our camping spot by Loch Dochart where we will be based for the three nights, and the afternoon can then be spent planning our routes and making ready.
On day two, we will make an early start with a good breakfast and then climb to the summit of Stob Coir an Albannaich and on to the rounded summit of Meall nan Eun this is a relative easy day so we can linger on the tops and enjoy the views (subject to the weather!).
After our evening meal, the time is yours to fish, explore or rest with a dram before we retire for the night.
The next day we climb up to the ridge of Beinn nan Aighenan and on to the summit. From there we follow the high ridges to Glas Bheinn Mhor, eventually coming back down to the camp site. This is a demanding day with steep rocky slopes and high tops, and if the group are feeling good we can also include Ben Starav. This is a mountain which gives the feeling of being on the top of the world with its views down Loch Etive, out to sea, and over the mountains. You will certainly need the evening to recover!
On our last morning we pack up the tents and head out back to the cars and home.
This trip requires a good level of fitness and you will be required to carry camping equipment in to the campsite, and your own personal gear on the hill days.
Cost £195 per person Max 5 people
