We put real luxury into these walking holidays. Or perhaps we should say ‘put real luxury back into highland walking vacations’. After all, the Victorian gentlemen and ladies who first toured the highlands’ deer forests and climbed its wildest mountains, liked to live well and they spent their highland evenings in a lodge or hotel, where they ate and drank very well in surroundings of ultimate comfort. Many modern tourists want exactly the same after their day’s explorations and we are determined to make sure that you will get it.
Our luxury walking tours and hiking trips are an excellent introduction to hiking in Scotland for people with good basic fitness. The adventure combines hiking with visits to places of interest. Daily distances will be 4-6 miles/6-9 km plus varying amounts of ascent, and we don’t expect to hike for longer than 4 hours (plus stops). Most of the hiking will be on paths, tracks or quiet roads, although the surfaces can be wet and rough. There will be some steep sections along the way, but no climbing greater than 1200ft/365m, even in total.
This luxury hiking trip will take us to Arran in the Firth of Clyde, dubbed as "Scotland in miniature"; and to the Inner Hebrides: the whisky island of Islay; and Jura where red deer outnumber people many times over. We will stay in small country house hotels, so that you may relax in comfort after your day out walking.....read more
