The high level walks are aimed at people that are used to the mountain environment and as such will have a reasonable level of fitness. The walks will be visiting wild places and will not necessarily follow footpaths. Conditions underfoot, coupled with the terrain; dictate that these walks are of a medium to strenuous nature. All activities involve a degree of physical input and as such any aches, pains weaknesses or concerns need to be advised to the guide at the start of the day and to The Torridon before the festival.

Low level walks will follow estate roads and footpaths with easy height gain but a reasonable level of fitness is still recommended. 

Bring your walking shoes!
