About this event
In poor visibility, this pair of Munros on the east side of the A9, south of the small village of Dalwhinnie, are notoriously difficult to navigate. In winter conditions, when any paths are obliterated under a thick blanket of snow, steering a course across the featureless plateau becomes particularly testing. Fortunately, your guide, an experienced winter mountain leader, will take care of the navigation, allowing you to enjoy the walk and keep an eye out for Dotterel, Ptarmigan and Mountain Hare which can often be seen in good numbers on these hills. Whilst these Munros themselves may not have the most distinguished appearance, there is a great feeling of space and remoteness and they are a great place to go to 'escape'. Throughout the duration of the day, your guide will take care of steering the course towards the summits and will be on hand to answer any questions and offer tips and advice on 'winterising' your kit and navigation strategies. Whilst not intended as a practical winter skills day per se, being two of the less arduous Munro outings, there will hopefully be time enough to practice some of the skills and techniques required for travelling safely through the mountains in winter conditions.
