Event description

Winter High Tops Cost £35.00 Starts at 0700

The days will involve a high top, either a Munro or one of our finer Corbetts, so you will need to have previous hill walking experience.

Once the snow gets firm enough for winter tactics to come in to play folk need to have the skills to cope with conditions. Our Intro to Scottish winter skills course is recommended for anyone needing to learn the basics or improve rusty technique. All winter High Tops are weather dependent. If there is a high avalanche risk on the slopes we’re planning to go on to we will change the route or the hill. If storm winds are blowing we may have to take in a shorter, lower hill. Walks in December will include an element of winter skills if conditions allow.

This will be to refresh winter movement technique, it’s not a comprehensive winter skills coaching session. Folk that need that should go on a winter skills course.

18/03/18 – Geal Charn 12.6km + 630 metres of ascent The Moadhliath Geal Charn is a fairly remote Munro for this part of the country. If the road is clear we’ll begin at Garva Bridge and head up and back via Sherramore. We’re almost tempted to go up by Glen Markie instead as the drive is shorter but the walk is a bit longer, by another 5.5km. Either way it’s a grand outing.
