Date: 4th August 2018
Saturday 4th until Monday 6th August 2018.
This is a level 4 walk in some of the remotest and beautiful scenery in the West Highlands.
You will need to have a good level of fitness for this walk which is a mixture of estate paths, rough track, and open, boggy, pathless moorland. These are big mountain days in extremely remote countryside and should not be underestimated. If you have any questions or reservations about your fitness and ability to achieve this walk, please contact me beforehand to discuss.
Day one - Meet at Kinlochewe in the Incheril car park at 1200 hours. It's a sharp right hand turn (signposted Incheril Parking) just as you enter the village over the cattle grid, follow the single track road for a mile or so, past the school and you'll come to the car park on the left. From here we will walk into Lochan Fada and setup our base camp either at the Lochside, or up on Bealach Odhar, to give us easy access to the Munros for the coming days. Total distance about 12 km and taking about 4-6 hours.
Day two - From our camp we will head out early to tackle the three Munros, Beinn Tarsuinn, Ruadh Stac Mor and the remotest of them all, A'Mhaighdean, in a circular route bringing us back to base camp. This is a big day of about 22 km with 10-12 hours walking.
Day three - Again, from our base camp, head out early to tackle the two Munros of Mullach Coire Mhic Fhearchair and Sgurr Ban. If we make good time and there's no reason why we shouldn't, we will continue along the ridge to final of the Fisherfield 6, Beinn a'Chlaidheimh, recently demoted from Munro status. Return to camp, pack up and walk out to Kinlochewe. 18 km taking between 7-9 hours.
If you require to borrow some gear for this trip, please contact me beforehand. I have tents, sleeping bags, rucksacks and stoves.
We will meet at Kinlochewe in the Incheril car park at 1200 hours. It's a sharp right hand turn (signposted Incheril Parking) just as you enter the village over the cattle grid, follow the single track road for a mile or so, past the school and you'll come to the car park on the left.
Ideally we would organise car share in advance to minimise our environmental impact.
