Our local hills provide a wide range of options from the ascent of single Munros or Corbetts to more challenging outings such as the Five Sisters of Kintail ridge, the South Glen Shiel/South Cluanie ridge and the Forcan Ridge.

Further afield, the Torridon mountains - Beinn Eighe, Liathach and Beinn Alligin - and the ridges of the Grey Corries and Mamores offer superb ridge walking and stunning mountain scenery.

Sample Guided Hill Walks
The following are just a small sample of the guided walks that we can offer. Times given are approximate and depend upon the fitness and experience of the party and weather conditions.
1. Ciste Dubh (979m) and Am Bathach (798m). 13km; 984m ascent; 5-7 hours. One Munro and one Corbett to the north of the Cluanie Inn provide a steady introduction to hillwalking in this area and, on a clear day, offer good views of the remote hills to the north above Glen Affric.

5. Sgurr an Doire Leathain (1010m), Sgurr an Lochain (1004m) and Creag nan Damh (918m). 12km; 1210m ascent. 6-8 hours.

6. The Saddle (1010m) and Sgurr na Sgine (946m). 13km; 1350m ascent. 6-8 hours.
The ascent of The Saddle by the Forcan Ridge is one of the classic hill days of the Highlands. It has some short sections of exposed scrambling requiring a good head for heights. The maximum party size for this route is 1:2. The Saddle can also be climbed by an easier route that avoids the Forcan Ridge.
