Friday 24th - Sunday 26th June 2022

About the event:

Between Torridon and Affric, the mountains of Monar are grand peaks sitting in a vast and fairly remote area. The mountains all have very different character, some with wide plateaux, others with narrow ridges and summits perched above precipitous drops. Views from the peaks are excellent, with fine vistas northwards to the Coulin Forest and Torridon peaks and westwards to Skye and beyond.

Moruisg and Maoile Lunndaidh have vast plateaus, untypical for western peaks, whereas the peaks of Sgurr Choinnich, Bidean an Eoin Deirg and Sgurr a'Chaorachain have long fine ridges. Bidean a'Choire Sheasgaich is craggy on its northern side and Lurg Mhor has an interesting notched gap leading to its eastern top.

There is good biking in this huge area. Two of the days we'll need to make use of them to access these huge areas!

Day 3 Walking in from the road between Achnasheen and Achnashellach.

The links will take you to the start place on Google Maps in a separate tab

Difficulty:

These are big and challenging hills with some steep descents, long distances, some dodgy "bridges", potential for river crossings and will require good fitness. There is a small section of scrambling off Bidean nam Nian. There are relatively good approach tracks throughout the area and we'll use mountain bikes to get in as far as we can.

Cost:

The three days guiding costs £199 per person with discounts for booking more than one.

16-18 year old's are welcome if accompanied by a parent or guardian.

You will need to provide your own transport to get there, travel insurance, mountain bike (and a lock / helmet) and accommodation.

Numbers:

I can take a maximum of 8 and a minimum of 4 for the trip to proceed. If there are fewer than the minimum numbers you will be offered a full refund.

Equipment:

Please see the All Activities section of the kit list.
