About the event

The Strathfarrar four Munros are a challenging walk in some of the remotest and most beautiful scenery in the West Highlands where you will need to be fit and capable of potentially 10 hours of walking and 25 km distance with about 1,500m of ascent. The Glen Affric Munros are an easier day, of about 17 km and 1,100m of ascent, a nice way to round of the weekend.

We've graded this as a red adventure as you will need to have a good level of fitness to manage the varied and challenging terrain. These are big mountain days in extremely remote countryside.

The Strathfarrar four are our main priority and we will choose the best weather day for these. Vehicular access to the glen is controlled by the estate and we will want to be at the head of the queue first thing in the morning to ensure we can get in. We will want to be there for 0845, leaving Cannich at 0815. This will give us the maximum time to complete this circular route of 25 km with over 1,500m of ascent.

The second day of the trip will be spent on Tom a' Choinich and Toll Creagach, the eastern two Munros on the ridge of eight along the northern edge of Glen Affric, one of Scotland's most beautiful Glens. These two have vehicle access with a new car park and access path having been built recently. They are still very wet and boggy in the lower reaches with some streams to be crossed that can be tricky in spate. The views are wonderful in all directions, especially North over the Mullardochs.

We will meet at 0800 at the Bogcotton Cafe, Cannich Caravan and Camping Park, Beauly, IV4 7LN on each morning. The campsite here has a lovely feel to it and is where many of our leaders and adventurers have stayed previously.
