About the Ben Alder Raid

Ben Alder Raid Private guided walking holiday

A pleasant undulating trek in and out of a fine wild area, with 2 days in between to capture Carn Dearg, Aonach Beag, Beinn Eibhinn, Beinn Bheoil and Ben Alder.

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

What customers said about this holiday

“Wonderful weather and stunning scenery - thank you for a great experience.”

“Small group, excellent food - a great holiday all round.”

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.
