ABOUT THE TRIP
The mighty Glencoe stops tourists with awe and wonder at it's beauty. Buachaille Etive Mor from Rannoch Moor is regularly voted the most picturesque Munro and is a perfect pyramid. We'll do a number of day trips to bag the biggest Munros in the area.
We'll have the big days on the Saturday and Sunday, and have a shorter day Monday to allow everyone to get home.

Guided Trips - Frequently asked questions
Is this suitable for me?
You will need to be fit and have some walking experience.
What do I need to bring?
You will need walking clothes (not cotton or jeans!), some extra layers, waterproofs, hat and gloves. You'll want to bring some food/lunch which you can easily eat. Plus some water or a thermos of tea/coffee/hot ribena.
I'm coming from further afield, where can I stay nearby?
This is up to you depending on your budget. This is a popular area in summer so advance booking is advised.

What are the Terms & Conditions?
I've got some more general questions...
How do I get there?
If you're not driving, there are Citylink buses from Inverness, Glasgow and Edinburgh.
If you want to chat to me about the adventure feel free to do so - email is a good start as I'm often out and about with limited phone reception.
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.
Or 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 trip.
Please ensure you've read the Terms and Conditions and you are aware of what you need to bring by downloading the gear list.
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...
Any problems then please get in touch
