Ben Alder Paddle and Trek

General Wade's Military Rd, Dalwhinnie PH19 1AA, UK

This is a fully guided expedition. Ben Alder is the highest mountain in the remote area of the Scottish Highlands between Loch Ericht and Glen Spean. The vast summit plateau is home of one of Britain’s highest bodies of standing water, Lochan a’ Garbh Coire. It is the 25th highest Munro, and due to its remote location, one of the less frequently visited. The expedition will approach Ben Alder by open canoe up Loch Ericht from Dalwhinnie to Ben Alder cottage; a Bothe at the southern end of the loch. Ben Alder Cottage is reputed to be haunted by the ghost of a ghillie who hung himself from the rafters. The expedition will walk to the summit of Ben Alder then back to the canoes to paddle out the following day. This is a fully catered expedition. You will need good walking equipment, a sleeping bag and a tent (tents can be hired). This expedition starts and finishes in Dalwhinnie.

This is a hard expedition! Led by experienced paddlers and mountain professionals
