Mountain Walking weekend
We’ve put together a fantastic mountain walking weekend out in the hills of the Scottish Highlands. You’ll be able to blow the cobwebs away; enjoy a blast of fresh air and completely forget about any work related concerns focusing on your well-being and mindfulness. A true slow adventure. By the time you get back home, Friday will seem an eon away. Aim to travel up on Friday in plenty of time to relax, meet the rest of the group and even head out for an aperitif before dinner at 7.30 or so (depending on arrival times of the whole group).
After dinner, over tea and coffee, Andy will chat through the itinerary and a few pointers about how to make the most of your stay and enjoy the hiking.
- 2 nights accommodation at Fraoch Lodge
- all meals included
- transport to the walks
- 2 days of guided hikes
- pick up/drop off at Aviemore station or Inverness airport
- Carn Ban Mor and Sgor Gaoith
- Ben Rinnes
dependent on size of group and available accommodation
Take the opportunity to refresh and rejuvenate on a mountain walking weekend staying in the heart of the Cairngorms National Park. The weekend is fully catered with guiding and accommodation provided in one inclusive package. Saturday is a challenging day tackling one of Britain’s highest peaks while on the Sunday it’s an early start to do a shorter mountain route before you head back home in good time to get organised for your return to the working week.
Sat: Carn Ban Mor & Sgorr Goaith rear up from wooded slopes to form the western flank of the high Cairngorm Massif. Rising from delightful Glen Feshie, with ever expanding views you’re suddenly faced with the astonishing view of Glen Einich & its loch 2000ft directly below. Huge cliffs skirt around its edge to the massive bulk of Braeriach, creating one of the Cairngorms most impressive features.
Sun: Isolated from the main mass of Cairngorm peaks, Ben Rinnes dominates the views across to the Moray Firth coast. We climb along the spine of this bold peak to reach its airy summit and panoramic views of distant peaks. We descend pass rocky tors to complete this circuit in wild and open country. If time allows and the group wants we’ll also try to visit a distillery like The Glenlivet or make a visit to the Whisky Castle to see the World’s Largest Bottle of Whisky.
NB This will mean a late finish to the day and you may want to stay on at Fraoch Lodge for the night
