Wilderness Mountains

The Highland region is one of Europe’s most unspoilt scenic regions, a rugged landscape of imposing mountain ranges, sheltered fertile glens and scattered offshore islands.

Shaped over aeons by geological faults, scouring glaciers and Atlantic weather, the area offers an unsurpassed variety for walkers of all levels.

For peace and tranquility amidst a breathtaking setting this is beyond equal anywhere in the UK.


These walks have been selected for their majestic scenery, quality and wide-ranging diversity and are included in 'The Great British Ridge Walks' book - 50 stunning walks in The Lake District, Snowdonia and Scotland by Bill Birkett.

The routes have been chosen for their outstanding quality and manageability within a single day or less and these are amongst the finest mountain walks to be had anywhere in the world.

  Binnein Beag and Binnein Mor

Each walk is unique, and although the nature and difficulty of some routes are aimed at the 'average hill walker' there are outings here which range through all degrees of difficulty.

At the top end of the scale the Buachaille Etive Mor and An Teallach offers Scrambling Grade 3 with considerable exposure and requirement for basic climbing and ropework skills.


  Beinn Alligin

At the easier end, The Three Sisters of Kintail and Arkle/Foinaven Traverse provide a straightforward though infinitely more sublime experience.

All of the walks can be done individually in a single day; however, given their isolation and logistics, the option to combine several over an extended period offers a more rewarding experience.

Information provided will enable you to make a quick appraisal of the walk and its difficulty.

  Fisherfield and An Teallach

The text on each route includes details of location, length and duration, the ascent, seasonal considerations, geology, flora and fauna and a comment on the reason for the walk's inclusion.

Time: Based on average fitness and includes rest and refreshment stops.

Difficulty: Summer conditions from non-technical to Scrambling Grades 1, 2 or 3.
