Guided Munro Bagging

The Munros are the distinctive mountains of Scotland that exceed 3000 feet above sea level. The number of them varies from time to time as more accurate surveys discover that one peak is higher or lower than first thought. Currently there are 282 of them. (February2014)

Munro bagging is something that is addictive to some hill walkers; they have just got to climb them all. Some do it at any time of year, some do them only in winter.

Corbetts

The Corbetts are the Scottish hills that are between 2,500ft to 3,000ft in height. You may think that these mountains would be much duller than the Munros. That is amatter of personal taste!  However,many of the Corbetts provide a great walk and can be very demanding.   For a top to be classified a Corbett, is must be over 2500 feet but also have at least 500ft of ascent from the surrounding hills - this guarantees that you'll know you've reached the top!. There are some stunning Corbetts around, the Cobbler, Quinag, Beinn Damh, Fionaven and Goatfell to pick out a few.  

Guided Winter Walking

These one, two or mores days winter walking holidays are suitable for those who have summer walking skills but who haven’t had much chance to get out into the hills in winter. Also, they are a great opportunity to brush up on navigation skills and bag a few Munros.We will look at basic navigation skills, including the basic use of the map and compass on the hill. Other techniques are also introduced – using handrails, collecting points and tick-off features, aiming off, timing and pacing and relocation skills. Also, time will be spent considering contour lines and how they relate to the land features we see around us. This intrioduction will give you more confidence to head off on your own
