Guided weekend on Kintail's Brother and Sisters

Kintail is a magical area full of impressive mountain ridges that rise steeply from shores and glens. Crags, corries and cliffs, often hidden well from roadside view, tempt hillwalkers and climbers to the ridge summits.

Over a weekend at the end of September, we're here discovering Kintail's famed Five Sisters and their easterly neighbours, often referred to as the Brothers of Kintail.
