Friday - Breakfast at Dobbies, Inverness and then say hello to Ben Hope again.
Saturday - Fionavon, ideally would like a bit of company with wheels plan to walk the full length :wink:
Sunday - nothing planned, probably something quick and easy on the way home.


FF, we are hoping for Foinaven on Sat - but only if weather is good. No point doing it in rain and wind, it's such a splendid hill that one has to enjoy it :D. We had to turn back from the first top last year due to horrible winds, maybe second time lucky!
We will only arrive on Sat morning as Kevin works Fri till late, all plans are still flexible at the moment. TBH we have climbed everything in this area apart from Foinaven and a few Subs so if weather not good enough for the biggie, we will be happy to repeat any hill just for the company :D

I too won't be tackling it if the weather is inclement, fingers crossed. Am sure there will be plenty of other volunteers :wink:

I wasn't planning on doing Arkle, although if the forecast is favourable that could be an option, was up there a couple of years ago and it is definitely a hill to re-visit :wink:

Hey all,
New member here. I'm looking for a walking weekend in Scotland that's fairly challenging with a couple of longish walking days and of course some decent relaxing with a beer in the evening. Can anyone advise if this trip may be suitable? I presume groups of people are arranging their own trips while there?
Many thanks,
James

Sadly, I won't be able to make it either. I have to open/close the shop on Fri and Mon and Tongue is just too far to get to and back from in a weekend. Hope everyone has fun :) .
