Subject to final permissions the event will start at Ardchattan, a scenic open area on the northern shore of Loch Etive before moving to a new area and Middle Distance race at Inverlochy, directly beneath the north face of Ben Nevis.  Day 3 will take the Road to the Isles to Arisaig, with opportunities to continue the journey through Mallaig and out to Skye for a day trip.

No decisions have yet been made on a Sprint Race (Fort William) but the main programme will recommence at Achnacarry (a new area), seat of the Chiefs of Clan Cameron with rugged terrain used for Commando training during WW2.  The penultimate day will be another great new area at Creag Dhubh, to the north of the River Spey near Newtonmore.  The final day (Middle Distance) is on the National Nature Reserve at Creag Meagaidh, with outstanding views over the Ardverikie Estate, Loch Laggan and numerous Munros.
