Guided walks – summer 2021

Saturday 4 September

Join the National Trust for Scotland ranger on one of Scotland’s finest hill walks over the magnificent Five Sisters of Kintail ridge.

This is a strenuous walk over challenging terrain but one that offers unsurpassed views over the North West Highlands and coast. A good level of fitness is essential to summit all five peaks, three of which are Munros. Look out for wildlife including ptarmigan, golden eagles and red deer, and learn about the National Trust for Scotland’s work managing this landscape.
