You should be a fit, agile and experienced hillwalker with preferably some experience of mountain scrambling, although if you have a good head for heights this is not so vital. For some of the harder Munros, helmets and harnesses will be provided and instruction given as to their use. The Skye Munros are some of the hardest mountains in Scotland. However if you are reasonably fit and determined, they can provide a challenging and rewarding experience. One of George's oldest clients was 82 years of age when he climbed the Inaccessible Pinnacle and he has helped many other nervous Munroists achieve their ambitions with his patience and understanding.
As a rough fitness guide for the longer days, you should be able to do an eight or more hour day, involving 4000-5000 ft. of ascent. To give you an idea of what is involved on this particular course, have a read of the article George wrote for the Scottish Hosteller which outlines a similar week he runs for SYHA. Please note these SYHA Munro Courses must be booked directly with them and not through George’s own business (see Links).
