Slioch Horseshoe

From Kinlochewe, initially following the calm shores of Loch Maree, a relatively straightforward route up climbs up majestic Slioch via its less intimidating south-eastern face.

Peaks : 1 Munro

Ascent : 1075m (3530ft)
Distance : 19km (12m)
Time : 6:30hr

Fisherfield Big 6

The 5 Munros in Fisherfield, along with the Corbett Beinn a'Chlaidheimh (which used to be a Munro), are affectionately known as the 'Fisherfield Big 6'. Although most hikers backpack in and bag the peaks over two or three days, it is quite feasable to bag them in a day, particularly with the help of a bike on the track in.

Peaks : 5 Munros, 1 Corbett, plus option of more !

Ascent : 2905m (9530ft)
Distance : 44km (27m)
Time : 12:15hr

Meall a' Ghiubhais and Ruadh-stac Beag

Some fine hillwalking with some challenging navigation and route selection to gain the summits of two rugged Corbett peaks behind Beinn Eighe in Torridon.

Peaks : 2 Corbetts

Ascent : 1430m (4690ft)
Distance : 18km (11m)
Time : 6:55hr

Beinn an Eoin and Baosbheinn

A fine track heads in from near Gairloch to the foot of Baosbheinn and Beinn an Eoin, from where a circular hiking route over long wide ridges gains superb vantage points for stunning views of Torridon and the north-west coast.

Peaks : 2 Corbetts

Ascent : 1575m (5170ft)
Distance : 23km (14m)
Time : 8:25hr
