The South Glen Shiel Ridge is a massive pointy wall of rock and grass which is high on most hill walker's bucket lists. Over three days we will tick eleven Munros, ten on the ridge and an outlier down in Glen Elg. The plan is to do the whole ridge over two days, camping high on the hill. On the second night we will stay at Shiel Bridge campsite before finishing off our visit with an ascent of Beinn Sgritheall. The cost of staying on the campsite is not included in the course fee.
Day One - 13.9km with 1660m of ascent. Beginning at Shiel Bridge we head for The Saddle, our first Munro, via Loch a' Choire Uaine. Then it's over to Sgurr na Sgine, our second Munro, before setting up camp near Bealach Duibh Leac.
Day Two - 22.7km with 1880m of ascent. A long day with lots of fine ridge walking is ahead of us here. Munros keep coming - Creag nan Danh, Sgurr an Lochain, Sgurr an Doire Leathain, Maol Chinn-dearg, Aonach Air Chirth, Druim Shionnach and Creag a'Mhaim - before we descend and take the old road round to the Clunie Inn. We will stay at Sheil Bridge campsite.
Day Three - 7km with 1000m of ascent. After packing up our tents we'll drive round to Loch Hourn and ascend Beinn Sgritheall, a shortish walk but with a sea level start and finish. If we have the legs and the time we may head over and do the neighbouring Corbett before heading back down the road.
