Glen Nevis and Steall Falls Eco Friendly Group Walk @ Steall Waterfall
Jul 11 @ 9:25 am – 5:30 pm

This eco friendly adventure was created to allow for a more sustainable and green way of exploring the magic of Glen Nevis.

Our journey together will begin by catching the bus ran by local company Sheil Buses to the start of our hike at the Lower Falls in Glen Nevis.

Our day will be around 7hrs exploring the wonders of Glen Nevis and Steall Waterfall. The walk takes around 5 hrs at a very leisurely pace so will be plenty snack stops and photo opportunities.

The walk itself is around 13 km long.

Even on a rainy day this place is spectacular and there is plenty to look at from a stunning gorge,native woodland and views to the higher mountains surrounding the glen.

We can even cross the wire bridge if people are feeling brave to get right into the bottom of the waterfall.

The walk is on rocky,wet and rough paths so sturdy footwear should be worn. Waterproof Jacket and Over Trousers with some warm layers should also be taken.Lunch snacks and drinks for the day will also be required.

Price is £39 per person.

Maximum group size 8.

Transport is not included from Fort William by bus £6 return.

The walk will depart from Fort William Bus Station at 930am. Returning 515pm approx

‘The Bothy Run’ – trail running mini-break
Jul 25 @ 8:00 am – 8:00 am
‘The Bothy Run’ - trail running mini-break

If you’re a trail runner then this is THE best wilderness adventure the Scottish Highlands has to offer! Fresh spring air, remote trails, scenic lochs and nothing but mountains all around. ‘The Bothy Run’ is a two-day mini-break that takes runners to a number of rustic MBA bothies enroute to the charming and isolated Loch Ossian Ecohostel on the stunning Corrour Estate: www.hostellingscotland.org.uk/hostels/loch-ossian The hostel is the perfect location to get away from it all and access quiet trails through an area of unspoiled natural beauty.

Your guides will not only show you the way and keep you safe, but will regale you with tales of ‘Bothy nights’, and the history of Scottish bothies. We will also cover the role of the MBA and Bothy Code, so that you’ll not only feel inspired, but will understand what is required to plan your own bothy adventure with friends. We will spend the evening ‘cooking-up’ and enjoying a roaring fire at the hostel – with a wee dram!

In the morning there is an option to visit the charming Corrour Station House (the UK’s most remote restaurant) for coffee or a bacon roll, before hitting the trails once more www.corrour.co.uk/station-house/restaurant/

On day-2 we will run a different trail back to civilisation, making the weekend into the perfect thru-run experience, with a rewarding sense of journeying through Scotland’s wild spaces.

Our 2020 ‘Bothy Run’ will be sponsored by The Gin Bothy, who will provide all our lucky runners with a wee dram or two to enjoy by the fireside! Gin Bothy is a Scottish, eco-aware, and award winning gin distillery, founded by women!

Gin Bothy founder and entrepreneur Kim Cameron says “the principle of respect – for mountain, river and farm – is ingrained in our work, and shines through in the products we’re proud to make. When I first launched Gin Bothy, it was about making the most of what the land had to offer.”

The weekend’s cost covers guiding and instruction with a Summer Mountain Leader qualified and/or Fell Running Association (FRA) accredited guide. It also includes one night of self-catering accommodation in the Loch Ossian hostel (all female bunk-room).

Due to the important role that weather plays in deciding what trails to take, we won’t be able to confirm the exact routes (mostly due to river levels)until the weekend itself. However, you can expect to run 15-17miles each day. The terrain is wild and sometimes rough, but not very hilly!

You will need to be a competent trail runner but don’t need to be concerned about your pace. The journey will be sociable, with plenty of stops enroute for faffs, snacks and snaps! The start and finish location is TBC but will be in the Glencoe/Lochaber area. We will liaise with you in advance of the weekend to arrange car-drops and shuttles if required. Please do not be concerned about getting back to your car/start.
Upon booking you will receive an email which will include information about what to wear and bring with you. We will meet up to check kit and discuss final plans over coffee before we start Day 1.

Upon payment you will receive a set of questions in our confirmation email. TO COMPLETE YOUR BOOKING please reply to Girls on Hills with your answers (email: [email protected]). This information will enable us to plan the perfect weekend for you.

We pride ourselves on being ‘approachable and relatable’ so please please do get in touch with any concerns or queries you might have now or nearer to the event. We look forward to having some fun and showing you some great trail running in the Scottish Highlands!

*Please note that Girls on Hills’ advise taking out your own insurance, as you would for any outdoor activity course or holiday.
