  • 14-18 October 2020

The meet up time and place for this expedition is Aviemore Youth Hostel  is 5pm on 14 October 2020. Meeting up on the 14th gives you time to meet the other participants, superviser and assessor. You will also have time to do some final route planning and preperation before the expedition starts on 15 October.

As part of the planning participants will be expected to work together to decide an expedition aim and to plan their route. The rough outline of the route is as follows: begin at Aviemore, go south past Feshiebridge, then through Glen Tromie with its beautiful Caledonian pine forst, then south again through Gaick Estate with its lochs and broad glens, ending on the A9 at Dalnacardoh Lodge.

Transport will be arranged for participants at the end so they can get to the nearest train station so they can journey home.

All of the camps will be wild camps.

Total cost is £200 per participant (inclusive of tent and stove hire and gas canisters).
