The ultimate way of seeing and experiencing Argyll is to immerse yourself in it for several days. There are many overnight trips you can do and below are a couple of suggestions. However, as with shorter trips, if there is something you would particularly like to do, let me know and I can plan a trip for you.

This is a two day trip which will take you by sea loch, salmon river and mountain pass.
We begin the journey at Inverawe and head north-west along side Loch Etive. The view of the mountains as we walk is spectacular with Ben Starav dominating the skyline. We pass several remote homesteads along the way and when we reach a small bay at Ardmaddy, we will camp for the night on the shores of Loch Etive.
In the morning we head inland following the pretty Kinglass River and its salmon pools for about five miles and then leave it to head south over the Lairig Dhoireann. We climb to around 2000 feet through this pass giving us the highest point of the trip before we finally descend to Glen Orchy.
Although only two days, this trip does give you an enormous variety of habitats and the chance to glimpse some of their occupants.
This walk is around 16 miles over landrover tracks and hill paths.
The walk can be made into a three-day, two-night walk averaging 5-6 miles per day.
The Mountains of Lorn
Covering some of the most iconic and spectacular views of Scotland, this four-day, three-night trip involves wild camping in remote locations with no facilities.
Day one - 8 miles
Starting at the Glencoe Ski Centre, our trip follows the famous West Highland Way for a time. This is by far the most dramatic and wildest part of the Way with the Black Mount mountains on once side and the wild and desolate Rannoch Moor on the other. The walking is very easy on this day and we spend our first night on the high moors beneath the shadow of Stob a’Choire Odhair.
Day two - 11 miles
Following the Abhainn Shira to the shores of Loch Dochard, we then meet up with the River Kinglass. This river has its origins in the high mountains and we will be following its descent into the glen, where we will spend our second night.
Day three - 11 miles
We continue down the Kinglass to Loch Etive and back out into the open. This really is a beautiful loch with panoramic views north to the Glencoe hills and south to Ben Cruachan. We walk alongside the loch to its head for our third night’s camp.
Day four - 11 miles
This is the hardest day with a lot of climbing. We start the day on the Glen Etive road which we than leave to climb through the Lairig Gartain which is the pass between the big and little shepherds of Glen Etive. The top of the climb is at 1600 feet after which we descend to Glencoe where we have an easy walk to the Kingshouse hotel for a well earned drink!
The walk in total is around 40 miles and although this is on good tracks most of the time, a good level of fitness is required and you will be required to carry some equipment and food. We supply all camping equipment and food.
This walk can be made into an easier walk over 5 days and 4 nights averaging 8 miles a day.
