Date: 19th April 2019
Three days across the Easter weekend from Friday 19th April 2019 to Sunday 21st April 2019 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 9am on Friday 19th 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, Saturday - 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 linear trek across the ridge that links these two Munros. It should take us about 8-9 hours to complete.
Day three, Sunday - Ben Klibreck (Meall Nam Con), 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 200m 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 £120 per person (maximum group size is 8) Book early to avoid disappointment.
Availability: only 3 places remaining
