Guided walk up the mountains west of Etive
Spend a day in early August hillwalking up the Munros west of Glen Etive including Beinn Fhionnlaidh and Sgor na h-Ulaidh
Bike in and up Beinn Fhionnlaidh and Sgor na h-Ulaidh
Hidden behind the dominating peaks of Glencoe, peace can be found on these shy mountains. Above forests, fine ridges lead to the Munro summits with their rewarding views far out over Mull and beyond. We're here to bag the twins of Beinn Fhionnlaidh (Finlay's hill) and Sgor na h-Ulaidh, with the option of cycling in on fine forestry tracks.
General outline of trip :
17km/1550m, 7-9 hoursFrom the road-side, 12km down Glen Etive, we'll walk or bike for 3km along a fine track. We'll then walk up Beinn Fhionnlaidh (Finlay's Hill) and hopefully be rewarded with views over to Mull and beyond. Some tricky route-finding takes us down to the col below, from where we'll follow fence-posts for the most part up Sgor na h-Ulaidh. For those who have cycled in, we'll end the day with a free-whell back to the road.
Cost of the guided day is £50 per person. You'll need general hillwalking equipment for the days - a list is here. If you would like to cycle in and need to hire a bike, this can be arranged with Killin Outdoor Centre at cost.
For this day, we can offer transport from Edinburgh or Stirling for shared cost of fuel.
