Faroe Islands small group walking holiday

The ocean dominates the Faroese landscape with its 700 miles of coastline. At no time are you more than three miles from the sea. The landscape is built up in layers that have sunk on one side and been raised on the other. The cliffs are the edges of these great layers of basalt, which were deposited by the volcanoes of the ocean bed in the Tertiary period.

Skye walking holiday in Scotland

This holiday aims to showcase the very best that Skye has to offer. Over the week we will experience the varied and diverse nature of the scenery while enjoying the best local food Skye has to offer.

Orkney & Shetland Islands walking holiday in Scotland

With over a 150 islands between them, of which over 30 are inhabited the scope to explore and experience these unique and contrasting groups of islands is incredible. In mid-summer the day-light hours extend long beyond midnight adding to the allure of Orkney and Shetland. Both islands were once part of the Viking kingdom and offer a fascinating weave of dramatic seascapes, unique geology dating back to when they were a mountainous region of the Scottish and Scandinavian pre-Ice Age continent. On Orkney we take a cliff-top walk on Hoy, the wildest and highest of the islands, overlooking the famous sea-stack of the Old Man of Hoy. No holiday is complete without visiting the Neolithic ...
