Fisherfield Wilderness Munro Treks
The Fisherfield Wilderness Treks
Backpacking Trek into 'The Great Wilderness'
Friday 8th - Sunday 10th May 2020
ABOUT THE TRIP
The Fisherfield Forest contains perhaps the remotest Munros in Scotland. They can be done as separate but very long day walks. But the best way to explore them is backpacking in for a few days. One of the famous 6 Munros has been demoted from Munro status to a Corbett but is a majestic hill. Add potentially difficult river crossings, there's no wonder the view from A'Mhaigdean is considered the best in Britain - given the effort to get there! I'll be running this popular trip over the early May bank holiday which is on a Friday in 2020.

If the rivers are impassable, we'll go in from Poolewe which is a much longer walk in and we'll not be able to set up a campsite (in other words - we have to carry everything).
Difficulty: Level 5 walk - Hard and long wilderness mountain days. The approximate total distance & ascent is 45.5km / 28.2 miles distance and 2,955m / 9,695ft ascent. There are some good tracks as well as some pathless sections with short scrambling sections. We may be carrying our camping equipment for two nights and three days walking. It is always hoped that we can get a spot to set up camp and have lighter packs for the three days but this is not always possible due to the infamous river crossings (two of them on the way in and out again plus the worst bog in Scotland. These trips are always an epic - it's not The Great Wilderness for nothing!
Cost: The three days guiding costs £210 per person (with a 10% discount if booking for 2-3 people, and a 15% discount for booking 4 or more). 16-18 year old's are welcome if accompanied by a parent or guardian. You will need to provide your own transport and accommodation.
Numbers: I can take a maximum of 6 and a minimum of 2 in order to run the events. If there are fewer than the minimum numbers booked you'll get a full refund. If you want to book for more than 6 please get in touch.
Here are some pictures from past events to inspire you!

If you don't like the idea of the online booking, that's fine as I can simply raise an invoice.
