The majority of work I do is for private clients on bespoke trips, but developments have meant that below I am now offering one or two organised events onto which you can book via my 'Bookings' page.
Just state the event name and date when you fill out the form.
The rates given are for guiding only, any accommodation or travel is at your expense.
Each event includes rough Scottish terrain, where appropriate gear is vital, (refer to my kit lists), and a fitness/ability to walk for fairly long days in all weathers. Please contact me if you have any questions or concerns about this.
I hope there is something of interest!
East of Etive
Rum Cuillin Expedition
1-3rd Oct '22
A 3 day event whereby we will ascend the Giants of Torridon, sandstone and quartz wonders that soar above the land around. There is some airy scrambling requiring a sure foot, but all of the difficulties can be avoided if necessary
Day 1 - Beinn Alligin, two munros, and the Horns of Alligin.
We usually do a clockwise round, up the newly improved path onto Tom na Gruagaich, where we get a seriously impressive view of the rest of the route. After passing the deep cleft of the Eag Dubh, we summit the highest peak, Sgurr Mor at 986m, before crossing the airy but easy Horns of Alligin
A grand day out, with spectacular views of the what we have in store.
11k, 1190m, 7-8hrs
Day 2 - Beinn Eighe.
We start the day with a walk into the wild country between Liathach and Sail Mor, and discover the breathtaking Loch Coire Mhic Fhearchair and the Triple Buttresses. There is a loose gully to scramble up, and then an easy walk on to Ruadh-Stac Mor, our first munro. Then we pick off a 'top', and onto the main summit, Spidean Coire nan Clach, which again requires some airy but easy scrambling.
The descent is steep and eroded, but straightforward. We will probably have left cars at either end of this route to save a tedious road tramp!
18k, 1116m, 7-9hrs
Day 3 - Liathach, 'The Big Grey One'
The finale, the main event!
Liathach is a magnificent mountain, and looks unassailable from the glen, but an excellent path weaves its way into the primeval atmosphere, and we soon gain the crest with amazing views all around.
Spidean a'Choire Leith takes its name from the grey quartzite which we will scramble over to make the summit, where the views of the rest of the ridge, the Am Fasarinen pinnacles takes the breath away.
We can cross the pinnacles direct, or take an airy but easy bypass path depending on desires, before making our last summit of Mullach na Rathain.
The descent is loose sandstone, but the NTS have been improving the path of late, and have done a great job once we pass the upper section.
Again, we will hopefully have shuffled some cars for a lift back!
