We put real luxury into these 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 we are determined to make sure that you can get it.
Our luxury walking / hiking tours are an excellent introduction to hiking in Scotland for people with good basic fitness. The holiday combines hiking with visits to places of interest. Daily distances won’t exceed 6 miles/10km 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 climbs greater than a thousand feet (300m), even in total.
You will stay in small 4-star country house hotels that have a reputation for care and for excellent Scottish food, so you can relax in comfort after your day out walking.
