Fisherfield Raid Backpacking holiday

About the Fisherfield Raid

Fisherfield Raid Backpacking holiday

Our expedition to these wild mountains allows a chance to experience one of Scotland’s most dramatic wilderness areas.

The aim is to explore the tops of "the big six" whilst camping in this mountain fastness.

Please note: Backpacking and wild camping are required on this walking holiday.

What customers said about this holiday

“Scotland was wonderful and to be in such a wilderness area a real privilege. The wild flowers and birds – amazing!”

“The perfect expedition - everything I had hoped for.”

Fitness Levels

Due to the remote nature of the trip and lack of easy escape routes, participants should ensure that they have a high enough level of fitness to enable them to complete at least the linear parts of this holiday in full.

Although the distances are not long and we have all day to enjoy the route folk do have to have the ability to carry 30lbs or so on a daily basis - not impossible but some practice is advised. The terrain covered is mainly on paths and tracks, which may be rough, rocky and wet at times plus there is some un-pathed terrain.

3 nights wild camping in two or three person tents provided by C~N~Do.

Stoves, gas and pots are also provided. You need to bring your own sleeping bag and sleeping mat.


Food for all meals, from picnic lunch day 1 to picnic lunch day 4, is included. Meals are prepared by participants in tent groups. Special diets can be catered for if notified in advance.
