- Trip duration:
Glasgow to Fort William
Meet your trip leader outside Glasgow Central Station at 3 pm before being driven to the hotel near Fort William where you settle in, get to know the rest of the group and enjoy a meal together while receiving a briefing from your trip leader about the challenge ahead! Make sure you get a good night’s sleep after dinner as it will be an early start the next morning!
Trekking the Summit
Start the day with a hearty breakfast before beginning your trek at around 9 am. Take your complementary packed lunch provided at the hotel, and bring along any extra snacks to keep you going. Your trek will start off steep, but you will soon join a gentler path before crossing small streams as the trail curves and takes you above the valley of the Red Burn. Beyond this, the slope will ease, and you may even see some snow! Your way will now take you across a beautiful lunar landscape, as your goal draws nearer. Once you summit, don’t forget to snap your celebratory photo before making your descent. At the end of the challenge, you will be transferred back to your hotel for your well-deserved celebration meal and party. Approx duration 5-7 hours
Fort William to Glasgow
You will leave after breakfast, and the coach takes you back to Glasgow Central Station from Fort William for roughly 1:30 pm to say our goodbyes!
