South Glen Shiel Ridge

Guided hillwalking days in the Western Highlands

The South Glen Shiel ridge is one of the finest moutain ranges in Scotland. A varied range of peaks stretch for 13km in one continuous, well-defined chain, with 7 Munros scattered along the length. The drops between the peaks are not great and only once does the ridge fall below 800m. We're here for two days, splitting the ridge into bite-size chunks, ideal for hiking at a relaxed pace !
