Wilderness Treks


Out in the Hills provides a range of 2, 3, and 4 day (and longer) wilderness treks in the Highlands of Scotland. We carry all our equipment, but the walking is at a reasonably leisurely pace - we're there to enjoy ourselves, not for some sort of endurance test! 

Included in the cost: we provide all expedition equipment - tent, sleeping bag and liner, thermal insulating ground mat, cooker, fuel, and expedition food (evening meals and breakfasts) - although everyone carries their fair share. For more details click here to see the Gear Checklist. 

Here is the calendar of the next few events. This is updated regularly, so please check back again to see what's on offer, or contact us to enquire about alternative locations or dates:

Remote Cairngorms - 2, 3 or 4 days treks

Saturday 8th - Sunday 9th June 2019: 2 days (1 overnight)

Saturday 29th - Sunday 30th June 2019: 2 days (1 overnight)

More opportunities to visit the remote wild camping spots of the Cairngorms. Leaving Aviemore after breakfast on day 1 and getting back there late afternoon on the final day. Each afternoon, once we've found a suitable location to camp and pitched our tents, there will be the opportunity to climb to the top of one of the nearby hills such as The Devil's Point, Ben Macdui, Derry Cairngorm, or Beinn Mheadhoin. 


  • 2 day trek: 1 person £250, each additional person £150.
  • 3 day trek: 1 person £350, each additional person £200.
  • 4 day trek: 1 person £450, each additional person £250.

Transport from the Aviemore area is included.

Taster sessions

If you fancy the idea of wild camping somewhere remote, but don't want to commit to 2 or more full days, why not try one of our taster sessions: we set off from Aviemore in late afternoon, walk for just a couple of hours, then pitch the tents. Next morning there's just a couple of hours walk out, and we should be back down by late morning.

All expedition equipment, food, and transport is again included, and there's still the opportunity to climb one of the nearby summits to watch the sunset, once we've pitched the tents.

These are run any time in summer when it's still light until after 10 in the evening - get in touch to check availability.


  • Taster session - short overnight Cairngorm wilderness trek: 1 person £180, each additional person £120.


Elsewhere in the Highlands - multi-day treks

There are plenty of areas in the Highlands which lend themselves to multi-day treks. Some of the more remote Munros are perhaps better climbed in this way; walking in to camp then using this as a base to climb the hills as shorter walks without full packs, rather than a very long day walking all the way in and out. The Ben Alder Munros west of Dalwhinnie, and the Fisherfield Munros north of Kinlochewe are two areas we often visit. Please contact us to chat about the possibilities.
