Race Description

A small group adventure on foot and using packrafts to journey sea to sea across the wildest terrain in the British Isles, including traverses of Knoydart, Kintail, Glen Affric and Loch Ness.
Take on a true Monster! Our totally unique 4-day packrafting and trekking adventure is a real wilderness undertaking, balancing self-sufficient sections with high levels of support throughout. Our specially designed route takes in the most superlative mountain, forest, loch and river terrain in the British Isles – including the ‘Wild Bounds’ of Knoydart, stunning Kintail and Glen Affric plus the legendary Loch Ness.
It is also a sea to sea journey across Scotland, giving a really tangible objective to this classic format. The trekking is generally on good trails, interspersed and with short and rather stern trail-less sections, some of which feature some exciting yet achievable river crossings. The packrafting is an unprecedented
addition to such a journey. It is really quite ground-breaking for these craft to be used in such a format, in Scotland. Our super-portable single-person rafts allow us to access some truly off-grid Highland water and the paddling is often idyllic, sometimes exciting and always a welcome change from the trekking.
