The Cairngorms 4000s Wilderness Wildcamping Trek

Saturday 23rd - Sunday 24th April 2022
Saturday 6th - Sunday 7th August 2022

ABOUT THE TRIP

This is a wilderness excursion wildcamping into the heart of the Cairngorms to take in the 5 Munros over 4000ft. It is a perfect trip to consider joining if you want to experience wild camping for the first time and learn about the 'leave no trace' practice.

There are only 4 other 4000ers in Britain, all in Scotland across in Lochaber: Ben Nevis, Carn Mor Dearg, Aonach Mor and Aonach Beag. Despite taking in such huge hills, this is a perfect trip for those with some good hill fitness keen to try out wild camping for the first time!

These are the best times to also avoid the midges!

It is an absolutely wonderful place. I'll aim to meet everyone the evening beforehand in Aviemore to run through the plans. We'll take in the Braeriach - Devil's Point ridge with a wild camp near Corrour Bothy, then take in Ben MacDui and Cairngorm.

Munros (We may do this in reverse depending on prevailing conditions):

1. Braeriach (1,296m / 4,252ft)
2. Sgor Lochain Uaine (Angels Peak) (1,258m / 4,127ft)
3. Cairn Toul (1,291m / 4,127ft)
4. (Carn a' Mhaim - a Munro under 4,000ft) & Ben Macdui (1,309m / 4,295ft)
5. Cairn Gorm (1,244m / 4,081ft)

If you don't like the idea of the online booking or would prefer to pay a 10% deposit for now, that's fine as I can simply raise an invoice. Please note that this has an additional £5 non-refundable administration fee.
Simply click 'Book Now' and follow the instructions. You'll get an automated confirmation reply but I'll follow that up when I get back to civilisation to say thanks and with more detail about the event.

A quirk of the website hosting system means there are a range of ticket options (apologies about that). Please check the number you are booking for on the ticket options and ensure you request that number of tickets...
