Fitness Levels Scottish wild and remote expeditions

Due to the remote nature of the expeditions and lack of easy escape routes, you as a participant should ensure that you have an appropriate level of fitness to manage the expeditions. The distances are not long and we have all day to enjoy and savour the surroundings and route. Participants need to have the ability to carry 30lbs (ish) on a daily basis. Though this is not impossible some practice is advised if you have not experienced this weight. The terrain covered is mainly on paths and tracks, which may be rough, rocky and wet at times plus there is some un-pathed terrain.
