Restarting Events

We are restarting some events with the easing of lockdown restrictions.

Walks can once again take place in England, Scotland and Wales, and will be run in accordance with local regulations.   In most cases our walks will allow for a maximum of 30 participants, although a lower limit may be in place following an event's risk assessment.   All walks require every participant to pre-book via the website.

General information

Carn Mairg Circuit from Invervar

The four munros of Càrn Gorm, Meall Garbh, Càrn Mairg and Creag Mhòr (also known as Meall na Aighean) on the north side of Glen Lyon can be combined in a circuit providing beautiful views on a clear day. They lie on a very broad and undulating ridge looking northerly towards Loch Rannoch and southerly across the Lawyers range.

The route is straightforward and involves a mix of well trodden paths as well as pathless sections and is not expected to be boggy in dry conditions. 11 mile (18km) circuit with c1300 metres of climbing, about 7-8 hours.  There are options to cut the walk short at a couple of points (for example after Meall Garbh) if necessary.

People intending to take part in this event should read GOC's document Safety in the Hills.

Terrain / Difficulty

A mountain walk, a mix of paths and sections of rough trackless moorland. Once up on the broad ridge the route is undulating with a maximum drop of 150m in altitude between the munros. There are a couple of steeper sections including the last kilometre of the final descent back down towards the river towards the end of the day.

Approximate Distance

11 miles
