More about us

Life is busy and hectic and boy do we need those couple of holidays; but is it ever enough? Well, here is your 48hr micro adventure to the mountains. It’s incredible what you can achieve in a short space of time in Scotland.

Escaping to the wilderness can bring a whole new perspective and clarity to life. It’s authentic, real and uncluttered. Glen Coe is one of the most magnificent areas of natural wilderness in the whole of Britain. Spend the day hiking up to the summits and ridges through the remnants of a super volcano surrounded by a complex mass of dramatic crags, cliffs and waterfalls. We aim to summit two Munroe’s with Bidean nam Bian at 1150 meters the highest in Glen Coe and Argyle. You can then prepare yourself for probably the most spectacular camp in Britain and remember a mind once stretched never returns to its original dimension.
