Itinerary

3 days (2 nights)

DAY 1:
Glasgow to Fort William. You will be driven to the hotel near Fort William where you can get settled in, get to know the rest of the group and enjoy a meal together while receiving a briefing from the trip leader about the challenge ahead! 

DAY 2:
The day will start with a hearty breakfast before beginning the trek at around 9am. A packed lunch will be provided at the hotel to take with you and you can also bring along any extra snacks to keep you going too! The trek will start off steep but will soon join a gentler path before crossing small streams as the path curves and takes you above the valley of the Red Burn, beyond this the slope will ease and you may even see some snow! 

The path will also take you across a beautiful lunar landscape and once your at the summit you can have the chance to take plenty of celebratory photos before your descent. At the end of the challenge you will be transferred back to your hotel for your well-deserved celebration meal and party.


(Approx. 5-7 hours trekking)

DAY 3:
After breakfast, you will set off from Fort William to Glasgow, followed by your coach journey home!
