Kintail's Brothers and Sisters
The 7 Munros of Kintail's Brothers and Sisters
Saturday 16th - Sunday 17th April 2022
ABOUT THE TRIP
Glen Shiel is famous for its battles with the Jacobite rising. It's also famous for being the Road to the Isles, absolutely stunning and having no fewer than 22 Munros on offer including the magnificent South Glen Shiel Ridge with 7 Munros baggable in a day. However, the north ridge is no less spectacular - also with 7 Munros on offer. They can be done in a day but are typically split into two days walking and that's what we'll aim to do
The Brothers Munros:
Ciste Dhubh (979m / 3,212ft)
Aonach Meadhoin (1001m / 3,284ft)
Sgurr a'Bhealaich Dheirg (1036m / 3,399ft)
Saileag (956m / 3,137ft)
The Sisters Munros:
Sgurr na Ciste Duibhe (1027m / 3,369ft)
Sgurr na Carnach (1002m / 3,287ft)
Sgurr Fhuaran (1067m / 3,501ft)
09:00am at various sites around the Glen. I'll send out information nearer the time as the weather may dictate which hills we climb on which day. We'll have to do a car shuffle both days as the walks are linear. We'll need to ensure there are vehicles at each end.
Difficulty: Glen Shiel is an 'all or nothing' place. We will be covering long distances with repeated ascent/descent over rough ground. There may be short sections of easy scrambling. It isn't so much about speed but being able to keep going.
Cost: The weekend's Munro Bagging extravaganza costs £129 per person with discounts for booking more than one place. 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 8 and a minimum of 4 in order to run the event. If there are fewer than the minimum numbers booked you'll get a full refund. If you want to book for more than 8, please get in touch.
Please Note: This trip is replacing the same trip that was originally organised by Steven Fallon Mountain Guiding (SFMG). I have kindly been given agreement to replicate the event now as SFMG has ceased operating. I was due to lead the event on behalf of SFMG.
We've had some amazing trips around Glen Shiel in the past in April and here are some of the pictures to inspire you!
Had a fantastic weekend in Scotland around Glen Sheil, an absolutely awe inspiring experience of a few Scottish Munro's, and the weather it can throw at you.
Watching weather systems move in towards you and pass by, pushing through and achieving the spectacular views that open up as you reach the peaks is breathtaking!
Thanks to Fabian AFS Mountaineering, passing on unprecedented knowledge of the region and skills that we can take away giving greater confidence on the hills/mountains/Munro's... and keeping us absolutely motivated when the going was tough!
Had an amazing time while clocking another digit on the old age...
Now to start the list to tick them off...A new Challenge Begins!
