Kildalton Cross, Isle of Islay
Our walking / hiking tours are a good introduction to hiking in Scotland for people with good basic fitness.
The holiday 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.
