Our route up Slioch is unique. Included in the fee to climb the Munro we will supply canoes or kayaks to give you a paddle on Loch Maree, rich in wildlife, which will also reduce the long walk in and walk out to this peak. We will provide safety equipmnt for the 1km crossing of Loch Maree curtous of our sister company Gairloch Kayak Centre.

This is a fortress of a mountain inaccessible on three sides, our route takes into the great corrie basin and on to the summit. Those feeling like extending the adventure dont need to return the same way but can walk the rim of the fortress along a friendly ridgeline.
