Fisherfield Mountain Expedition Summer 2012

The Fisherfield mountains, near Ullapool, are much revered in walking circles, especially among Munro baggers. Anyone who has hiked the epic tour of six of Scotland’s famous Munros will recount stories of a huge adventure and fabulous views.

While the latest news does suggest that one of the six Munros will be changed to Corbett after recent remeasuring, it is still kind of necessary to summit all six mountain tops to tick off the five (or possible six) Munros.

In any case, one Munro bagger, aka the G-Force, reckons that the Munro in question, Beinn a Chlaidheimh, is well worth summitting whatever its title. He said: “It doesn’t matter whether Beinn a Chlaidheimh is officially a Munro or a Corbett, it’s a fabulous peak and it is on the main route of the Fisherfield Munro circuit anyway. I can't imagine missing it out!”

But this Fisherfield trek is no easy undertaking. Walkers need to be fit and up for a challenge. Joing a guided trek takes away a lot of the worries about navigation and will lead to a much greater chance of walking all these summits in three days.

On Fri June 29 to Mon July 2, 2012, inclusive, Glentrek is offering a fantastic three-day walking package giving you the chance to “bag” all of the Fisherfield Munros in a single guided trip.

This is a strenuous walking trip with remote camping and will therefore incorporate a mountain training day three or four weeks prior to the expedition.

Departing from the Dundee area, all you will need to bring is a high level of fitness, full hillwalking gear and a sleeping bag.

The price of £375 for the expedition includes:

* One night B/B in a hotel

* Two nights of high-level camping

* One mountain training day with a Mountain Leader

* Guiding with a Mountain Leader

* Expedition rucksack, camping equipment and camping rations.

Book your place now and for more information please give Glentrek a call on: 01307 469536
