Guided Monadhliath winter Munro bagging

The Monadhliath ('grey mountain range' from Monadh Liath) range may not be as exciting as Cuillin or Torridon or have deep dramatic corries like the Cairngorms across the Spey. But it has a unique charm - the area is vast and, as no roads penetrate into the area, there's a real sense of wilderness and remoteness with lots of breathing space here. Navigation is tricky to say the least, finely honed skills will be needed to progress even in clear conditions, so let one of our guides lead you over these hills without you worrying about map and compass ! If we keep our eyes peeled, we're likely to see wildlife - deer, ptarmigan, mountain hares and more.
