Fisherfield Raid Backpacking holiday
About the Fisherfield Raid
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.
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.
