Near the Enochdu section of the Cateran Trail


We are pleased to announce that we are now taking bookings for the 2018 event.  Once again we have managed to find a range of new walks, from an extended high level trek visiting the peaks of Lochnager, to interesting sections of the Cateran Trail.  From Extremely Strenuous through to Moderate we have a walk for most people.  All are linear, we provide transport with qualified guides and first aiders to look after you.   More information on each of the walks can be found from the booking form.
