In May 2019, the Moveit4smiles team conquered Mount Suilven, one of Scotland's tallest and most distinctive mountains, battling moorland, bogs and lochans along the way! 

Our route began at Glencanisp Lodge, roughly 1.5km from Lochinver to the west. After trekking across 6km of terrain, we reached the river locally known as Abhainn na Clach Airigh. Shortly after, we switched paths to begin our ascent towards the step north side of Mount Suilven. 

After a further 2km of intense climbing, our resilient team encountered Bealach Mor (the Great Bealach Pass). The final push to the summit was steep, with our team careful to avoid some boulders that threatened to bring the mission to a late and abrupt end! 

Finally, the peak of Suilvan lay before us. We made the most of the beautiful view before us, taking a couple of pictures and enjoying the fruits of our day's labour! 

We then returned back down the gully and across the moor before returning to our start point outside Lochinver.

A day full of wonderful scenery, great camaraderie and lots of exercise. Dry weather was definitely a bonus!

Rest assured, team Moveit4smiles certainly had a day to remember!

Together we can create a world where fewer people are affected by mouth cancer and help Brits become more aware of HPV, a potentially deadly virus.

This September we will be taking on two mountains at Snowdonia and we would love you to join us!

On 14 September 2019, we take on Cnicht - the Welsh Matterhorn! This popular Welsh mountain is a 10km walk and an ascent of 577m. A route suitable for those with limited walking experience and a reasonable level of fitness.

On 15 September 2019, we’ll be heading for Tryfan via the South Ridge. Voted the best mountain in Britain and famous for the fact that you cannot get to the summit by any route without using your hands. This is a tougher route than the previous day and is best suited to those with some previous walking experience.

Feel free to join us for one day or both. Just raise as much money as you can!
