Remote Glendessary Munro expedition weekend

  • Glen Dessary

    Spean Bridge, PH34 4EL (map)

    0.000000 0.000000

  • Saturday 24th and Sunday 25th June 2017 will be a two day expedition from the end of the single track road into Glen Dessary to tackle some of the roughest and remotest Munros in Scotland.

    These will be level 3 walks with a touch of grade 1 scrambling involved, in some of the remotest yet most beautiful scenery in the West Highlands. You will need to have a good level of fitness for these walks as they are both over 25 km days, often on rough, pathless ground involving river crossings where we will very likely get wet feet, possibly more.

    Day one will be a 28 km circular hike taking in the stunning Sgurr na Ciche (the photograph accompanying this was taken from the summit looking west) Garbh Chioch Mor and Sgurr nan Coireachan. This is a long, strenuous day and not to be underestimated. It is not uncommon for it to take 12 hours to complete. Day two will be a 26 km circular across the remote and mostly pathless Glen Kingie to take in Sgurr Mor and the Corbett of Sgurr an Fhuarain, another potentially 10 hour day.

    These walks are best tackled with a base wild camp setup near the end of the public road in Glen Dessary. There are no facilities at this location. If wild camping, we will meet on the evening of Friday 23rd to set up camp and be ready for an 0800 hours start on Saturday morning. Alternatively, the nearest accommodation can be found at Spean Bridge or the Great Glen Hostel www.greatglenhostel.com both in the region of 35 km away. Staying at these would mean an hours drive each morning\evening if this were preferable to a wild camp. Cost is only £100 for two dyas and nights guiding, book your place now at http://www.kingdomguides.co.uk/product/glendessary

    Get in touch if you have any questions. These are big days with routes and mountains that will leave an impression on even the most hardened walker.
