Follow in the footsteps of Bonnie Prince Charlie over Scotland’s highest mountain road (2526ft).

The Corrieyairack Challenge demands respect and a special place in your heart. General Wade’s historic mountain pass was built by hand in 1731 and successfully defended by Bonnie Prince Charlie in 1745.

Join us for the 22nd Corrieyairack Challenge raising funds for people with disabilities to enjoy an outdoor holiday at Badaguish.

You can choose to walk-cycle, run-cycle, mountain bike (with bike change) or EBike (with bike/battery change) around the course, which includes an 11.5-mile hill section from Culachy, just outside Fort August, to Melgarve via the Corrieyairack Pass, and a 38.5-mile road section from Melgarve to Badaguish via Laggan, Kingussie and Insh. Those taking part will also get free pasta party, weekend camping and showers at Badaguish.
