    Meet up in Aviemore, introductions and sort out kit if needed. Start walking and ascent at least one summit on the first day. Set up camp in the evening.

  2. Day 2 The Longest Day

    After breakfast walk up some more hills and set up camp for the last time.

  3. Day 3 Walk Back

    Try to ascent another hill and then walk off the mountain. Finish sometime in the afternoon.


This expedition is taking you to some of the most magnificent camping spots in the Cairngorms. Both nights are wild camping and we will carry all our own equipment.

Why Us?What we offer beyond the norm!
  • All our high quality 4 season tents will be replaced every 2-3 years
  • Our sleeping mats are lightweight inflatable mattresses (mostly Therm-A-Rest NeoAir)
  • Our instructors are highly qualified and know the area well

Since camping is going to be high up most of the time we would advise a 3 season sleeping bag.

Yes as long as it can stand up some wind. It is in the mountains after all.

The lighter the better. We advise dehydrated food. You can get some pretty good stuff from most outdoor shops now.
