Ben Alder Range Expedition

As something a little different and with a remote and wilderness feel then the Ben Alder range has it all. As with the summer expedition, but using the bothy as a base. If we carry in a supply of coal between us then we will then have the luxury of a fire in the evenings. Please note: You will need personal clothing and backpacking (sleeping bag, 65+li ruscak, head torch, etc.) equipment for this expedition.
