Woodland Stalks

Woodland stalks call for an early start – around daybreak – and last three to four hours. Going into the heart of the forest can be challenging, at the fringes is easier and often more productive, but a good level of fitness is required. Evenings are also a good time to stalk (three-four hours).

Hill Stalking

When available, these stalks take place around the Cuillin Mountain range, offering some incredible views over Skye. Requiring a very good level of fitness hill stalks last all day.
