About this Adventure

Based in the remote north of the Knoydart Wilderness for five days, you will learn to use the land to your advantage. You will sleep in hammocks, collect water from the land, learn to make fire and shelter, and find food from the sea. You will also experience the majestic mountains of Knoydart, with two mountain days led by experience mountain leaders.


Knoydart is found in the west of Scotland, a little way up from Fort William. It is a peninsula which is surrounded by Loch Nevis to the south, Loch Hourn to the north, the Atlantic to the west, and an unbroken range of mountains to the east. There are only two ways to reach Knoydart - either by foot over the mountains (a two day hike), or by boat. We usually choose the boat when we want to get there quickly.

Unless we make other arrangements, we will meet you at the harbour in Mallaig on the morning of your adventure. There may also be an evening briefing the night before, depending on the adventure you are embarking on. Most clients will want to arrive the evening before and stay overnight in one of Mallaig's bed and breakfasts or bunkhouses. We recommend this as a way to ensure that you are on time for the boat trip the next morning, and that you are refreshed and ready to make the most of your adventure!

There are a number of parking places at Mallaig. There is a large long-stay car park as you reach Mallaig, which is where we recommend. There are also a number of small on-street parking lots in Mallaig itself.
