Hiking holidays in Scotland
Memorable parts? The walking, the food, and Rebecca and Andy's hospitality. Local benefits? Andy and Rebecca have tried really hard to create a B&B which offers a very comfortable experience but yet limits the environmental impact. Everything that can be recycled or reused is, but yet at the same time this doesn’t effect the quality of the service offered and I feel this certainly adds to the whole experience and ambience of the lodge. Overall rating? An excellent holiday,... (more)Ruth Seward

Walking short breaks in Scotland
Memorable parts? Walking on snow at the top of Cairn Gorm mountain in July at a day time temperature of 28 degrees! Tips? Have an appreciation of scenery, wildlife, flora. be fit and not mind about being busy. There's loads more to do in the Aviemore region so think about extend your trip. The cairngorm discovery package gives you an excellent introduction to the region if you havent been before. Local benefits? Yes. Overall rating? We had amazing weather so the... (more)Gail Ashworth

Conservation volunteering in Scotland
The most memorable part was meeting so many different people and doing 'work' for the greater good of Scotland's forest. (more)Karmini Takodra
Meeting a wide range of like minded people. Spending a lovely sunny day in an ancient Scottish forest counting Scottish pine trees....wow...a renewed love for my country. (more)Liz Scott
Come the end of the week we were all a little tired from the work, but also very proud of what we had done. Driving back to the lodge we came across a stunning natural pool and waterfall which we just could not resist and so dived (almost) right in and spent time relaxing among new friends. That and constantly swimming to try and stay warm! (more)Andrew Silander
From £81 - £350 excluding flights
Snowhole expedition, Scotland
Memorable parts? Learning to self-arrest with an ice-axe - sliding head first and face down on an icy slope! Tips? Bring lots of spare gloves. Local benefits? Yes, it provides local employment and the accommodation was as sustainable as possible and the activities cause no lasting impact. Overall rating? Very good, maybe not an experience I want to repeat but fulfilling to do once. (more)Dan Smith
From £396 excluding flights
Walking navigation & mountaineering courses in Scotland
There are so many positive things to say about this course – the supportive leader, the fantastic home made food, the beautiful highland scenery…but the happiest memories for me are of the people I met. (more)Kim Naylor-Vane
The highlight was seeing scotland for the first time, learning new skills, enjoying the company. The satisfaction of getting to the top of 2 munros. (more)Harjit Mahl
We had a great time and felt we learned loads about navigation and being out in the hills in general. Best thing for me was increased confidence. I now feel in being able to venture out into the hills and find my way. (more)Heather Martin
From £225 - £559 excluding flights
Ullapool self catering cottages, Scotland
Excellent! Exploring the local environment and seeing wild deer, seals and otters were the most memorable parts. (more)Lindy Brown
The 'Lochside Cottages' are in a beautiful spot, right on the shores of Loch Broom. Very peaceful and relaxing. Good access to hills in Assynt and Torridon for the more adventurous. (more)Elaine McAdam
The view from each window spectacular and so close to the loch that it was almost like being on a boat at times! Views changed with the stillness of the water or with the time of day and weather. Misty mountains at dawn to orange and red sunsets and each day and time different from dawn to dusk. (more)Julia Graham
From £190 - £600 per week (sleeps 4-6)
