UKs 9 highest mountains
There are 9 Munro’s in Scotland that are over 4000 feet. These 9 Mountains are all contained within 2 mountain ranges, 5 in the Cairngorms and 4 in the Ben Nevis range.
This 4 day trip will mean that we will climb them all. We spend 2 days in the Cairngorms (one night wild camping) climbing Cairn Gorm, Ben Macdui, then Braeriach, Cairn Toul and Sgor an Lochain Uaine (Angel’s Peak).
Having completed the first two days, we will travel onwards to Fort William, with an overnight stay preparing for the next event which will be the ascent of Aonach Mor and Aonach Beag. The final day will be spent climbing Carn Mor Dearg with a traverse along the CMD arete to the final summit, Ben Nevis.
