North West Highlands – Winter Mountaineering or Winter Walking
We’ve not been up this far north in winter for a while so we thought we’d base ourselves in the Ullapool area and seek out some winter adventures in Assynt or Wester Ross depending on the weather.
Winter Walkers: cost: £227
We’ll head north into Assynt and do a traverse of Quinag, which will be an unforgettable experience culminating in ticking three Corbetts. There’re also winter ascents or Canisp or Cul Mor or Cul Beag to entice us.
If we have to head east we have the Beinn Dearg group of Munros or Ben More Assynt and Conival. It’ll be a memorable trip with guaranteed memories for a lifetime regardless..

Winter Mountaineering cost: £284
We’re planning to be mountaineering on the classic hills north of Ullapool if they’re in condition: a traverse of Stac Pollaidh, Pinnacle Ridge on Cul Mor, V Gully on Quinag. If it’s better further east we have options on Beinn Dearg or some of the bigger Assynt hills like Conival.
