Mountain and Loch Adventure - Loch Shiel




Join us on an amazing journey through one of the wildest and most beautiful parts of the Scottish West Coast. During the three days you will go deep into the mountain wilderness and travel by canoe down Loch Shiel. On a clear day the mountains here offer phenomenal views of the Hebrides looking west.

On our journey we will cover some of the key peaks in the area and camp high in the mountain in tents. On route you will learn about mountain navigation and survival and ecoology in this stunning, but potentially hostile environment. By day 3 we will arrive at the centre of Loch Shiel - a Loch steeped in Scottish History and more recently featured in the Harry Potter films. There waiting for us will be some canoes and we can continue our journey to the end of the Loch. Keep your eyes open for eagles, otters and diving birds!

Please note we will aim to run a Coastal Survival Day on the day before this course. Contact us if you are interested in adding on a day of marine survival to make a great 4 day experience!
