Glen Affric and Strath Cannich are in a remote area in the north of Scotland. These 2 Highland valleys have some magnificent hills and some of them are hard to get to. They are very much calling out to be climbed together. Glen Affric is well known for its hills and the surrounding forests. On this trip you will climb up all 8 Munros to the north of the glen. Since this is quite some undertaking it will be done in 2 days. The First day we will spend the time to walk up the less known hills of Strath Cannich. However they are just as great.
All in all you will be able to bag in 12 Munros in just 3 days. This will be something to be proud of. No easy feat though.
Due to stalking at the estates in the area it is only possible to do this walk till mid July.

Start walking at the end of the road of Strath Cannich and walk up Carn nan Gobhar. The second hill, Sgurr na Lapaich is with 1150m the highest and certainly the most magnificent hill in this group. We will finish of the day with another 2 hills and camp at the far end of Loch Mullardoch.
The Longest Day
This will be the longest and toughest day of the 3 by walking up a maximum of 6 Munros. The Highlight of the Glen Affric north ridge is Garn Eige with 1183m. This night we will camp high up. Where depends on how far we will get on this day. It’s all a bit of an adventure.
On the last day we will finish the Glen Affric hills by walking up Tom a’Choinich and Toll Creagach. Then we will pick an easy way back down to Glen Cannich.
This expedition is taking you to some of the most magnificent camping spots at Glen Affric. Both nights are wild camping and we will carry all our own equipment.
- 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.
