Hi folks.

I'm looking to plan a few multi-day trips in the highlands this year. Can take a bivvy or 1 man tent plus equipment to be self sufficient for 3 days or so. Happy to kip in bothies etc.

Any suggestions? (Aside from plenty of midge spray!)

There is plenty of scope in the Cairngorm, see here for some ideas:

There are lots of variations on the theme and plenty of bothy options.

Have a look at the photos on this thread:

I did that route the other way round starting at Glenmore and finishing at the road head in Glen Feshie last July. Great day out.

In reply to thomasmcalonan: get yourself Scottish Hill Tracks book, it's a bible for route planning on good tracks, plus the above mentioned websites. The Gorms are very bike friendly and doing it by bothy another good option.
You should post your adventure on here afterwards.
