Rob Roy and William Wallace event at the Braveheart at Nevis Range

 

Event - Tachartas

We plan to ski in the Aonach Mor and Aonach Beag area and then bivvy close to the bottom of the Braveheart Chairlift in honor of William Wallace. 

Feel free to dress up as Rob Roy, William Wallace or Dòmhnall MacFhionnlaigh nan Dàn.  

You are welcome to ski for the day without the bivvy of course. 

The long held ambition of transporting beer to the Braveheart is a driving force behind this expedition. 

Tonnes of skiing in the huge corries of Aonach Mor and Aonach Beag.

Information - Fiosrachadh

Essentials:

a) meet at Highland Council carpark in Inverness at 0930 to car-pool, or at the Nevis Range base station at 1100;

 

b) take camping gear, which means tent/bivi, sleeping bag, camping mat;

 

c) take whatever food and drink you want up there on Saturday night;

 

d) if you have a dry-bag to leave stuff in through the day, take it!  If not, ask around and likely someone can lend you one;

 

e) bring a head-torch if you want to go night-skiing in the Back Corries (highly recommended);

 

f) bring a big backpack to be able to take all of the above up the lifts with you.

 

Details:

Ideally, after dinner we will head for a wee night-ski up the corrie behind, perhaps to the col below Summit Gully, for those who have head-torches.  

On Sunday, we may go for a ski-tour early in the morning, then pack up the tents and "leave no trace" at the camp-ground, and if the weather is decent and it's running we may be able to get the camping gear out using Braveheart, which is the lazy option.  If it's not, we will ski it all down the valley a bit and then hike up to the Rob Roy lift to get back out.  Less than 1h's walking equals the easiest high-camp you've ever had in the Highlands!
