Our best seller: Isle of Skye and Highlands tour

From £849
8 days Moderate walking holiday and sightseeing

A crossing of the most beautiful landscapes and major sites in the north-west of the country.

Long expanses of peatlands wrapped in mist, medieval castles inhabited by legendary ghosts, the sounds of bagpipes, the warmth and friendliness of enjoying a pure malt whisky by the fireside, sheep grazing quietly on fat grass near typical farmhouses... Scotland has remained a country with untamed nature, contrasting landscapes and perennial traditions. We are pleased to invite you to this nature adventure, from the Isle of Skye, which National Geographic has ranked as the world’s third most beautiful island, to the wonders of the Glencoe Valley in the west of the country. The return to the urban world will be marked by a visit to Glasgow. The warmth of a pub will provide the perfect ending to this journey through the country’s untamed lands.
