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 or in tents, 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 and evening meal (drinks will not be included in this) and breakfast the following morning.

 

Along the route 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!
