Event description
A remote and stunning walk through mountain scenery which intercepts two checkpoints on the Salomon Glen Coe Skyline® race route.

About this Event

Take this beautiful walk through the 'two lairigs' of Glencoe and share breathtaking mountain scenery with competitors of the Salomon Glen Coe Skyline®

This guided walk is of moderate difficulty and is a brilliant chance to watch the lead runners coming into checkpoint 4, then later to observe the competitors up close as they run towards you from checkpoint 5. The group will need to organise their own transport to the start this walk in Glen Coe.

This guided walk is specifically designed for the friends and family of the competitors who would like to experience the Scottish mountains without climbing up high, and who would prefer to do so as part of a group. Suitable for older children (in the company of their parents only, and no children under 10 years).

For all our guided walks please come prepared for any weather, and a day of mountain walking. This means you will need the following essentials:

A packed lunch and plenty of snacks

Water bottle (and perhaps a thermos flask if it is cold)

Waterproof jacket and waterproof trousers

Warm mid-layer AND a spare warm jacket (it quickly gets cold when you stop to spectate)

Suitable footwear such as walking boots

Hat & gloves

We would also recommend taking a smart phone (perhaps with a powerbank back-up) so that you can follow the GPS tracking live for the races. We will also provide each person with a race map. Our guides will carry emergency equipment for the group such as a first aid kit and group shelter.

Please note, when you meet your guide, there will always be group discussion and decision about the itinerary based on the weather and groups’ ability. It is possible that the group will decide on a different plan. If transport is required, the group will need to organise this with their personal vehicles.

This out-and-back hike is approximately 10km with 450m ascent total. Exact start and finish times TBC upon meeting your guide.
