Do I need to be able to read maps?
No, we’ve got all that covered. There will be a qualified mountain guide with you at all stages on the walk.
Where do we meet each day if I’m only doing it for one or two days?
This obviously depends on which day/days you’re doing but all the information will be included in the pack which we’ll send you in plenty of time.
At what time each day will the walk begin and end?
The walk will start at 8am each day and end by 5 pm.

You’ll need to be reasonably fit. You’ll be covering around 18 miles in 8 hours with a rucksack and the terrain will be hilly in places.
