“Just returned from an amazing solo hike of the West Highland Way, beautifully organised by the tour company. The whole trip was flawless from start to finish; great accommodation, excellent instructions and pacing of the entire trip which could not have been improved. Highly recommended and I will certainly use this tour operator again for similar expeditions.”

“My husband and I travel extensively, and we try to make sure that every trip we take is a little different - a new adventure! This trip through Scotland was absolutely amazing - by walking through the country we were able to connect with the place and with the people in such a profound way. While in South Berwick we shared a table and some beer at a pub with a family from England. While walking to Dunbar, we walked with a lady foraging for mushrooms. Walking along the coast we met a birder who shared his knowledge of the local birds. We had amazing food and we saw amazing scenery! We would definitely recommend this type of trip for adventurous souls like us!”

“Enjoyed seeing the locks in action in Fort Augustus; the High Route from Fort Augustus was beautiful; meeting people along the way, no midgies!, and sampling whiskies at the end of the day.”

Highlights of Scotland Hiking Tour

  • Take in the fantastic views of Loch Lomond and nearby hills in Southern Scotland. The path is well charted out and is a fairly easy hike.
  • Rejuvenate your senses on a hike to Arthur’s Seat, located in the heart of Edinburgh. The hike offers stunning panoramic views of the city and its surroundings.
  • Explore the Isle of Skye, as it is every hiking enthusiast’s paradise. It leads the way to exciting hiking opportunities like the Old Man of Storr and the Fairy Pools.
  • Celebrate nature in the UK's largest national park in the Scottish Highlands, the Cairngorms National Park. It is filled with various trails, rare plants and uncommon species like the Scottish crossbill.
  • Climb Stac Pollaidh on the northwest coast of Scotland. With incredible views of Assynt to the north and the Summer Isles to the south, the hike is worth every step.
  • Bask in the glory of snow-clad mountains and trails as you make your way up to Liathach in Glen Torridon. While the ascent is steep, the views are rewarding.

Travel Tips for Scotland Hiking Tour

  • Dress in layers as Scotland is known for its unpredictable weather conditions. Expect sudden fluctuations and sudden bursts of rain, fog and strong gusts of wind.
  • Familiarize yourself with the concept and location of Hiker’s Bothies. These are basic shelters where you can seek refuge in case of bad weather conditions.
  • Plan and book hiking tours months in advance, as accommodation options are almost always booked out from May to September.
  • Protect yourself from “highland midges” as they can leave small bites that are uncomfortable and itchy. Carry a midge repellent or apply insect repellent balms all over the body.
