Scotland self guided walking holiday

Would you like to discover the Highlands of Scotland but away from the great classic routes? The Cairngorms National Park, the largest park in the UK, has wild, spectacular mountain scenery - it is the most amazing area to explore. What you’re likely to see during the week: moors, lochs, Munros, flocks of sheep, deer, castles and whisky distilleries. The beauty of the countryside and the variety of the wildlife is unsurpassed. Some of our clients in 2017 saw a Capercaillie during one of their walks; others were able to forage for mushrooms; others saw red squirrels. All enjoyed the wilderness and sense of solitude they had while out exploring. All were amazed at how few people they saw ... Read more >

Short break walking holiday in Scotland, Lairig Ghru

We take the hassle out of walking the linear Lairig Ghru. This is a challenge familiar to a lot of Scots who have ambitions to walk the length of the Lairig Ghru at least once in their lifetime. The Lairig Ghru is Britain's highest mountain pass. The high point in the pass is at 2000ft but it is still dwarfed by the surrounding mountain massif which makes up the Cairngorms. The route starts at the Linn of Dee on the south side of the Cairngorms near Balmoral Castle and Braemar. You walk through the pass to the Aviemore end of the glen, finishing at Whitewell. The hike is 18 miles long on rough terrain. You must have good walking boots which provide ankle support and a good grasp of ... Read more >

Cairngorms mountain biking short break, Scotland

Car free, bike heaven for an adventure mountain biker - these routes showcase the classic routes around the Cairngorms National park. We've put together 4 days which will take you through some amazing countryside and you'll visit a distillery, then go on to compare the samples at a specialist whisky shop where there should be something for everyone's taste. Then you'll be heading out into the heart of the Cairngorms National Park to enjoy the scenery, space and solitude. Have you discovered adventure biking yet? There's something a wee bit off putting about the term "mountain biking". It implies a lot of hard work, but "adventure biking", doesn't that sound more exciting? Here in the ... Read more >

Hiking holidays in Scotland

Highlighted trips: THE EMPTY QUARTER (Assynt, Highlands of Scotland): departing 7th September (6 days, 7 nights) A forgotten part of the British Isles - Assynt is where the Norse gods practised making mountains for Norway, or so the saying goes. It really does take the breath away just to drive through this area. Imagine how much more you'd get to appreciate it while hiking. Have you seen the movie "Edie" starring Sheila Hancock? The scenery which forms a central part of the movie, including the mountain Suilven, is what we'll be exploring during this week. Purple mountains covered in heather - lush green glens dotted with sheep - deep green Caledonian pine forests, which once stretched ... Read more >

Scotland winter walking holidays

Scotland - winter - snow - sunshine ... they all go together. But it's not all about the traditional snowsports. Hiking across the Scottish hills in the midst of winter is an amazing experience. It can be challenging but in the company of an experienced guide you can leave the navigation and weather assessment to him or her and just enjoy getting out into the hills. A good level of fitness is required as walking in snow and ice is more challenging than summer hiking. The boots are heavier and stiffer and the weight of crampons adds significantly to the effort. But a crisp, sunny day the view with endless miles of snow capped mountains stretched out across the vista is it's own ... Read more >

Scottish Highlands holiday with yurt accommodation

Scotland has been voted the most beautiful country to visit by the Rough Guide. We whole-heartedly agree and our passion is to show her beauty off through outdoor adventures - getting up close and personal with that beauty to create your own perfect and individual memories. Isle of Skye and the Cairngorms National Park is a perfect introduction to the wild side of Scotland. We'll hit all the iconic highlights we can without travelling out of our way. We'll visit Loch Ness, cross to Skye on the traditional boat crossing (cue the Skye boat song); we'll hike in the Cuillin mountains and at the Quirang to experience Skye's unique landscape; and we'll have frequent opportunities to see ...
