2020 AUTUMN MUNROS: guided hillwalking in Scotland

Hillwalking in Scotland during Autumn is a very much under-rated joy. Hillwalking in Scotland brings so many rewards – and in autumn you’ll be delighted by a scenery of fabulous rich colours. The joys of autumn are very much under-rated. Yes, there is a wee bit less daylight but that means you have the exceptional opportunity to observe both sunrise and sunset in a day. The sun is at a lower level in the sky so the light you see across the landscape during the day is exceptionally good for photography. There are also far fewer people around generally than in high summer. More than likely we will have our routes to ourselves.

This holiday includes four days of guided mountain walks to reach 7 Munro summits.

Day 1: Arrival
Day 2: Beinn a Chlachair (Laggan) – Beinn a’ Chlachair is the highest of a group of three Munros in the Ardverikie Forest south of Loch Laggan. Its finest feature is Coire Mor a’Chlachair, a fine corrie on its northern flanks. The mountain has a spacious plateau but presents a forbidding wall to remote An Lairig to the south, whilst on all other sides it is very steep.
Day 3: Stob a Choire Meadhoin & Stob Coire Easain (Laggan) – This fine pair of Munros – commonly known as the Easains – give a fairly long ridgewalk high above the glacial trough of Loch Treig. Stob Coire Easain in particular is a fine peak and offers superb views; it is quite hidden away behind other summits from most roads which perhaps explains why it isn’t better known.

Day 5: Carn Liath, Stob Poite Coire Ardair & Creag Meagaidh (Laggan) – the approach to Creag Meagaidh is along a well maintained path. To begin with it doesn’t look as if there will be much to climb but once you see the magnificent amphitheatre which makes up the horseshoe which includes Creag Meagaidh, you’ll appreciate the grandeur of these giants. It’s a popular venue with winter climbers.
Day 6: Beinn Teallach (Laggan) – this is a somewhat overlooked munro compared with its neighbours in the Creag Meagaidh group to the east. The lower approach may prove to be a little boggy but once the ridge is gained, it will prove to be a very rewarding route.
