Fisherfield 'Big 6'

Guided hillwalking and backpacking in the Northern Highlands

In the north-west of Scotland, the areas of Fisherfield and Letterewe are reckoned to be one of Europe's last wildernesses. This is a quiet area tucked behind Slioch and An Teallach and for the most part hidden well from roadside view. The mountains contained are very inaccessible and their isolation necessitates a long walk in, with careful planning and overnight camping.

We suspect that social distancing will still be required by the time of our October'20 event. To accommodate this, we'll be splitting into two smaller groups, with one group heading in from Coire Haillie to camp by Achnegie and the other hiking in via Loch a'Bhroin and camping south of Loch an Nid. The distances and ascents for these routes are similar. If you are booking onto this event and have a route preference, please let us know.
