Kinloch Hourn

About the event

Knoydart is often referred to as the last great wilderness in the UK. It is certainly some of the remotest, challenging and most beautiful scenery in the West Highlands. To get to these remote mountains you will need to be fit, resilient, and have good movement on often pathless steep ground.

Day 1: Walk from Kinloch Hourn along the rough path beside Loch Beag for 10 km into Barisdale where we will setup base camp. There is a small private bothy run by the estate which has 12 bunk-bed spaces, running water, a flushing toilet and not much else. There is a small area to camp outside and share the facilities of the bothy. There is an honesty box in the bothy for a few pounds per nights stay (£3 last time I visited). It is essential that everyone takes a tent as space in the bothy cannot be guaranteed.

Day 2: From Barisdale we will ascend towards Mam Barrisdale and summit Luinne Bheinn and Meall Bhuidhe before descending back north towards Mam Barrisdale and returning to base camp at Barisdale bothy. This walk is a distance of about 17 km and should take no more than eight hours.

Day 3: Again, from Barisdale, up early, we will take on the quite stunning mountain that is Ladhar Bheinn by ascending via Coire Dhorrcail and up onto the spectacular ridge to the airy summit cairn before returning the same way. This walk is a distance of about 13 km. We will now pack up base camp and return the 10 km back to Kinloch Hourn.

We've graded this a black adventure as these are big mountain days in remote countryside.
