Luxury Walking Tours in Scotland

Luxury adventure booms again in Scotland’s highlands and islands. About Argyll Walking Holidays joins with Scotland’s great country house hotels to put real luxury into our walking holidays. Or perhaps we should say ‘put real luxury back into highland walking holidays’...after all, the Victorian gentlemen and ladies who first toured the highlands’ deer forests, and climbed its wildest mountains and highest cliffs, liked to live well, and they spent their highland evenings, in lodge or hotel, in the manner to which they were accustomed. They ate very well and drank very well in surroundings of ultimate comfort. Many modern tourists want exactly the same for themselves after their day’s explorations...and About Argyll Walking Holidays is determined to make sure that they can get it.

Walks to places of interest that can only be reached on foot

Luxury means much more than great accommodation of course. It means getting to see those special out of the way places that most visitors miss, and About Argyll’s guides go out of their way to enhance the holiday experience. You want to know more about the place you’re visiting? They can tell you about it. You need moments for reflection? You will get them. Such personal attention, together with due diligence in planning and preparation, is integral to About Argyll's philosophy and their partner hotels. They know that quality is the way forward for tourism in Scotland and are determined to be part of its great future. We have 3 luxury hiking tours in our holiday programme: Perthshire, Argyll & the Isles; the Isles of Arran, Islay & Jura; Highlands & Skye. Click here for details.
