A’Mhaighdean – The Great Wilderness – Bothy trip

Date / Time
Date(s) - 26 Apr 2018 until 30 Apr 2018 12:00 pm

A trip with the aim of bagging what is often referred to as the remotest munro, A’Mhaighdean. The plan is to drive up to Scotland on the Thursday afternoon, and Friday walk to the bothy at Shenavall & then have Saturday and Sunday to climb A’Maighdean and the surrounding hills.

The classic route from Shenavall is the Fisherfield Six, described on the walking highlands website as follows – “The Fishfield Forest – contains the remotest Munros in all of Scotland. The effort required is fully repaid, however as this is a spectacular region of dramatic peaks and ridges, the views from the summits are often claimed to be the finest in Scotland. The route is an epic round of all five munro and one Corbett, starting and finishing at Shenavall bothy or a nearby wild camp. Steep weatherly hillsides, scree, bobulderfields, narrow ridges, broad grass slopes, some easy scrambling, serious river crossings, and one of the worst sections of bog that you can imagine.”
