C-N-Do Scotland Guided Day walks & activities

Daywalk Equipment List:

You need to bring your own walking equipment (hiring from us is usually possible if you are short of any item) and packed lunch/drinks for the day. The success of the day may depend upon how well equipped you and other members of the group are, so please do ensure you have all the essential items listed below.

During the winter months we are able to supply ice-axe and crampons for the mountain walks (grade 4 and some grade 3) if you do not have your own. Let us know your height and details of your boots when you make your booking.

Please wear several layers of clothing for ease of adapting. Choose garments which are easy to move in (NO jeans) and try to wear a wicking layer next to the skin. Boots in good condition will provide the best protection and security.

If you are short of any of the items below it is possible to hire from us for the day. Please contact us for more information.
