Hike The Highlands

The Loch Lomonds & Trossachs National Park is a popular, easy to access area that offers a classic wild Scottish mountain experience. Over the four days we plan to take you on several big mountain days.  

On the east shore of Loch Lomond we have the imposing mountain Ben Lomond which stands at 974m and offers some stunning views across the loch. In Crianlarch there is the 1174m Ben More, a big challenge for anyone. In Arrochar we have Ben Arthur (known as the Cobbler) at 881m and Beinn Narnain at 926m, both offering a true mountaineering experience with its mix of walking and scrambling.

As part of our commitment to minimal impact this group is limited to 6 people, which also ensures you get the best experience and learning outcomes.

Mountain Skills

Snowdonia National Park has a number of incredible mountain ranges in a relatively small area. The northern area is popular and includes the Snowdon massif, the Glyderau and the Carneddau. The second includes Moel Siabod, Cnicht, the Moelwynion and mountains around Blaenau Ffestiniog. The third includes the Rhinogs, in the west as well as the Arenig and the Migneint, and finally the southern area including Cadair Idris, Tarren range, the Dyfi hills and the Aran group.

If you’ve never walked in this National Park, or have but want to build up more confidence in your abilities, then Lightfoot Adventures have developed this trip to introduce you to navigating in more remote areas, mountain safety and moving on more technical terrain.

Over three days we’ll introduce mountain navigation & route finding, offering the opportunity to practice map reading, as well as showing you what technical terrain you might encounter. We will lead you on scramble routes so you can build on your existing experience and give you confidence to tackle more interesting routes yourself.

Wild Camping

Whether you want to learn new skills or simply to camp out in the wilds and have an adventure, this weekend is for you. As experienced Mountain Leaders, adventurers and eager campers, Lightfoot Adventures aim to encourage others to plan and engage in their own expeditions safely and responsibly. 

The weekend starts in a bunkhouse where we discuss kit choice, packing, food options and decide on a route for Saturday with a suitable spot to wild camp. On Saturday morning we leave to navigate to our evenings destination where we set up tents, discuss what makes a good camp spot, wild camp rules and leave no trace etiquette. On Sunday we break camp and return back to the bunkhouse.

We will provide comprehensive kit lists and we have some kit that can be lent out so feel free to ask when booking.
