  • The specific itinerary is subject to change based on local weather conditions.

    Friday (from 8pm) - Meet outside London Euston train station and board the Caledonian Sleeper train (bed in a single-sex, twin room with one of your fellow adventurers) for an overnight journey to The Scottish Highlands

    Saturday - Meet your guide as you disembark the train for a trip briefing before heading out on your first day of the challenge: The Aonachs!

    Follow the well-defined path as it winds its way up the slopes of Aonach Mor and on to Aonach Beag, offering stunning views of the surrounding mountains and valleys.

    Reaching the summit of Aonach Beag you can soak in the panoramic vistas of the Nevis Range and beyond before retracing your steps back to the awaiting transport.

    At the end of the day you will check-in to your accommodation and head out for a well-earned pub dinner.
