Rough Bounds of Knoydart

Guided hillwalking days in the Western Highlands

Rising high above Loch Arkaig and Loch Quoich, the mountains on the eastern fringes of the 'Rough Bounds of Knoydart' are rugged and wild. These majestic peaks are remote from civilisation giving a real sense of wilderness to anyone hiking here. We're here for 3 days of guided hiking aiming up the high Munro summits including Sgurr na Ciche, Sgurr Mor and Gairich.
