Date: 27th April 2018
Three days from Friday 27th April 2018 to Sunday 29th April 2018 based in Lairg, Sutherland.
These are level 3 walks on the most Northerly Munros in the country. They are considered remote due to their distance from the Central Belt rather than distance from a road.
We will meet at 9 am on Friday 27th April outside the Spar Convenience Store on the main A836 road through the village, 1 Lochside, Lairg, IV27 4EG where we will organise car share for the days trip.
Day one, Friday - Ben Hope, the most Northerly of them all. We will drive from our base in Lairg, via Altnaharra, a distance of about 35 miles but due to the single track roads, it will take us at least an hour. Ben Hope itself is a short but steep walk which should only take around six hours to complete. The views are amazing in all directions.
Day two, Saturdy - Ben More Assynt and Conival. We will drive from our base in Lairg to Inchnadamph and park at the Hotel. This is a 33 mile drive, taking about 1 hour. The walk begins immediately from this point and takes us on a 17 km round trip across the ridge that links these two Munros. It should take us about 8 hours to complete this walk.
Day three, Sunday - Ben Kilbreck, just a 15 mile drive from our base to Vagastie Bridge where we will pick up the track for the hill. Another relatively short day at only 14 km, the final section is a little steep but we should have this one in the bag within 7 hours.
There is a campsite in Lairg at www.pondside.co.uk and a Hotel (which also has a Bunkhouse) in nearby Invershin www.invershin.com There are also several B&B's in either location to suit all tastes.
Ideally we would organise car share in advance to minimise our environmental impact.
Cost is only £90 per person (maximum group size is 10) Book early to avoid disappointment.
Availability: only 5 places remaining
