Hands on Events have announced that the venue for this year's Highlander is Kinlochewe. The village lies at the head (or south end) of Loch Maree, and is one of the main access points into Torridon.
Kinlochewe is surrounded by noteable hills and some famous areas of wild land, where the 'Highlander planning-chiefs have been (and still are) busy creating some flavoursome courses for your delectation.'
The spiky Torridon hills and outliers are to the west and north of Loch Maree. Slioch and the Fisherfield hills lie to the east, as do the Fannaichs - so there's plenty of possibilities to go at.
As ever the organisers are keeping the exact details of the mountain marathon close t their chests for now, along with a few other surprises...suffice to say that the area is as stunning as any ever used by a MM anywhere, and really is not to be missed.
'The Highlander routes have been designed to allow a wide range of participation; however none of them will follow paths and given the possible weather conditions, the event is not suitable for hill walking beginners.'
'For the softies there will be the usual luxuries on the Saturday night by way of a marquee, food, beer and dancing . Please sign up, and please also encourage your friends to come along too (providing they are reasonably competent on the hill!) - the more the merrier.'
