Back packing trip Glen Carron area Scottish Highlands 8th – 12th May

The plan is to catch a fairly early train from Nuneaton on the Thursday arriving at Achnashellach station at approx 8 pm. From here we will walk to Gerry’s hostel at Craig for the night. Alternatively we may decide to walk in further and camp somewhere on the track if the weather is good. The following day we will walk in to GR 095 465, or thereabouts, set up camp and maybe go for a walk. There is a possibility to do four or five Munro’s from here, or you could just come for the wilderness experience. We will spend Friday and Saturday night wild camping, so again a decent tent, sleeping bag and some camping equipment will be necessary. Sunday we will walk out to Gerry’s hostel for the night, returning to the station Monday morning for an early train home. According to Colin Gerry’s hostel is a bit rough and ready so don’t expect another Corran bunk house. Don’t watch any Quentin Tarrantino films before you go! The cost for Gerry’s hostel is £12.00 per night. We will be booking train tickets in the next two weeks and expect them to be around  £56.00 return. If you are interested let me or David know ASAP (you will need OS sheet 25 Glen Carron and Glen Affric)
