One Wild Night: Making Mountains
Join us for our first partnership event with Wild Roots Guiding!
This overnight walking and wild camping journey is the perfect opportunity to immerse yourself in a landscape and spend a night under the stars in a supportive and welcoming environment. You will learn some of the skills needed and get to try out the equipment required to enjoy this sort of activity. The aim is that by the time you return home you will be feeling confident enough to give this a go independently next time around.
This route explores Stob Ban at the western end of the Mamores and incorporates aspects of the Making Mountains day journey. It includes a high camp in a stunning location and the Munros Stob Ban and Mullach Nan Coirean. As such it requires a good level of mountain fitness.
Maximum distance and ascent covered over the two days: 14km and 1250m
This experience will combine a mixture of walking, landscape storytelling and wild camping. It is as much about being in a landscape as it is moving through it. We will take our time to walk to our camp spot, exploring along the way and discovering the human and natural history of the area.
When we reach our place for the night we will set up the tents together and have the opportunity to learn about various aspects of camp craft e.g. where to get water, how to choose a comfy spot, cooking arrangements and even how to go to the toilet! There will be plenty of free time to relax in this place as well as other options such as; a workshop on navigation and map skills, an evening stroll or wild swim.
