FAST-PACKING KNOYDART

LENGTH: 2-3 days

Make your first fast-packing adventure one to remember! Catch the foot-passenger ferry to Inverie with your guide and spend one or two days running back to civilisation across the Rough Bounds of Knoydart. Cut-off from the mainland road network, we’ll travel by foot over mountains, past lochs, and through remote glens on an itinerary designed around you.

 

Let Girls on Hills take care of the logistics and join us online (via Zoom) for details and support to help you prepare and develop the confidence you need to step off the beaten track with us…

NORTH WEST SAFARI

If you’ve never been to the North West of Scotland then you are missing out on a vision that is truly breath-taking. Dramatic peaks of Torridonian sandstone rear up out of a vast ‘cnoc-n-loch’ landscape littered with wooded glens and intricate lochs. 

The area has been recognised for its wild natural beauty and has recently been awarded UNESCO-endorsed ‘European Geopark’ status in recognition of its outstanding geology and landscape.

Escape the North Coast 500 and run into the wilds with us, experience these iconic summits and mountain panoramas for yourself and discover a Staycation that you’ll want to repeat for years to come.

WEST HIGHLAND WAY ‘HIGH ROUTE’

LENGTH: 1 OR 2 DAYS

The northern half of the 96-mile West Highland Way is the most challenging but also most scenic stretch of Scotland's oldest long-distance route. Why not up-the-ante and try our High Route variation! Climb the summits of Ben Lui, Buachaille Etive Mor and Ben Nevis (at the start, middle and end) of your multi-day itinerary. Your Girls on Hills guide will get you safely to the top (and down) from these three most impressive summits.

 

Then we’ll send you on your way, along this world-famous and waymarked route through the Scottish Highlands. Mountains days can be bolted-on to your existing baggage/accommodation logistics or supplied on our behalf through EasyWays Scotland.
