The Mighty Fisherfield Wilderness

Saturday 3rd - Monday 5th September

About the event:

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!


The aim is to head in and set up a base camp, and head up to Ruadh Stac Mor and A' Mhaighdean. On the following day, we'll tackle the remaining three Munros and possibly the Corbett. On the third day we'll pack up and head out!

Munros:

Sgurr Ban (989m / 3,245ft)

Mullach Coire Mhic Fhearchair (1,019m / 3,343ft)

Beinn Tarsuinn (937m / 3,074ft)

A’ Mhaighdean (967m / 3,173ft)

Ruadh Stac Mor (918m / 3,012ft)


Corbett:

Beinn a’ Chlaidheimh (913.96m / 2,999ft)

Meeting Point:

09:00am Corrie Halley Park

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:

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 trip costs £269 per person with discounts for booking more than one space.

Numbers:

I can take a maximum of 6

Equipment:

Please see the All Activities section of the kit list as well as the wildcamping additional.
