Users will need to provide: food, drinking materials, spare head torch batteries (3 of AAA), screw fitting gas canister (Coleman 100 for an overnight or 250 for 2 nights), and personal hygiene materials.  Normal personal walking gear will also need to be taken, but it isnt necessary to duplicate anything from the list above.  A head midge net and insecticide spray may also be useful. 


Either boil in the bag or freeze dried meal packs are ideal, and neither particularly heavy.  Enough for an evening meal, late snacks, and breakfast each day.  You will also need the makings of your choice of hot or cold drinks.  It is also good practice to bring a bag suitable for rubbish to assist in keeping everywhere tidy.
