Suilven

This iconic mountain is probably the most distinctive mountains in the UK and also one of the longest walk ins (25K +). So why walk? Canoe for a day and a half then make camp at the foot of the mountain. Ascend at a leisurely pace the next day and return to camp for early evening fishing or enjoying this remote area .

  • A 4 day Scotland Wilderness journey, within the Inverpolly National Nature Reserve
  • This Wilderness voyage encompasses the true nature of a canoe expedition, and takes us on 3 Lochs ( Cam Loch, Loch Veyatie and Fionn Loch)  down rivers and a couple of portages
  • Camping is remote and wild. We will make camp alongside the lochs, cook on the open fire and sleep under tarps, in tents or simply under the stars.
  • Guided ascent of a truly remarkable and dramatic mountain – Suilven
  • Fishing is also allowed on the expedition!

Included in cost: All specialist equipment and instruction. On the expedition all food and drinks will be provided. Also included – your last night’s accommodation in private rooms in Ullapool YHA and evening meal (drinks will not be included in this) and breakfast the following morning.

Along the route there are portages to be done around waterfalls and a fish farm and if the water levels are good  descending some  river sections.There is usually an opportunity to make progress under sail, fish for your supper and also a chance to see absolutely nobody else!
