Scotland self guided walking vacation

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 youíre 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 >

Scotland winter hiking vacations

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 >

Short break hiking vacation 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.
