Start and finish
All our holidays start and finish in Glasgow. We will meet you in the city centre (Queen Street Station) or at Glasgow International Airport.
You will stay in carefully selected B&B's, guest houses or hotels. Double and twin rooms will have an en suite or private bathroom.
A limited number of single rooms is available on all our holidays at a supplement. In some places, if you are staying in a single room, you will share the bathroom with 1 other room.
There will be no supplement if you are willing to share a twin room - with 2 single beds - with another member of the group of the same gender. This will always be a room with an en suite bathroom.
Please note that only few B&Bs have single rooms. This means that if you book closer to the start of the holiday, we might not be able to get a single room and need to charge extra for single occupancy of the double or twin room. We will always let you know in advance if this is the case.
By law smoking is not allowed in public places. This means that all B&Bs, hotels, restaurants and bars in Scotland are non-smoking. We also don't allow smoking in our minibuses.
What you need
You will need to bring boots with a good tread and adequate ankle support, warm clothing, waterproofs (top and over-trousers) and a rucksack big enough for your spare clothes, a packed lunch and whatever else you normally like to have with you (binoculars, a camera, etc.). Boots are especially important. They don't have to be particularly heavy, but wearing lightweight ones may mean your feet get wet. Hiking and walking shoes or trainers definitely aren't adequate nor, on some of the rougher and steeper going, however short it may be, are they safe.
Information before departure
You will receive information about meeting time/place, your accommodation, other members of the group and details of the holiday, 3-4 weeks before the start.
Please let us know, in confidence, of any conditions from which you suffer which may affect your safety in remote areas. These include vertigo and diabetes. Please consult your doctor if in any doubt.
We carry Public Liability insurance. In addition, we very strongly recommend that you take out your own travel insurance to cover personal accident, cancellation etc.
Minimum number of participants
Four clients is the minimum number for our guided holidays to go ahead. In the event of us having to cancel through insufficient numbers, we will let you know at least 42 days before the start and we will offer you an alternative holiday. If the alternative does not suit you, we will refund in full all money paid.
There is no minimum number for private guided itineraries.
