Winter Walking Holidays

Our winter walking holidays offer a wide range of experiences – from easy rambles beneath soaring peaks through to ascents of those mountains.

Our range of ‘Winter Highlands’ themed winter walking trips are suitable for most walkers. They focus on low level hikes beneath snow-capped peaks and through snow-clad forests. They don’t involve any ice axes or crampons – just easy hikes and roaring fires when you get back to the hotel!

Our ‘Winter Skills’ trips, however, will lead you to the high summits. You do need a good level of fitness to join these trips. You will most likely be an avid hiker already and keen to explore Scotland in winter.┬áThese trips include formal instruction on ice axe and crampon techniques, as well as other winter skills.

These trips also provide valuable income to the remote communities we visit at a time of year when we are often the only visitors in the village. It’s a wonderful time to visit Scotland and a special season to explore the mountains so we hope you can join us.

Winter Walking - Winter Highlands: North West
You could not go on this trip without thoroughly enjoying it. Set in the midst of Scotland's beautiful west coast. A perfect winter break. Walking in the falling snow looking over Loch Awe on our arrival day was the perfect start to the holiday.

Winter Walking - Winter Highlands: North West
Very easy excursions into local varied landscapes.
Do NOT expect to lose weight on this walking holiday as the food is both local produce and delicious,and the exercise is not strenuous.

Winter Walking - Winter Highlands: North West
A lovely, relaxed trip with gentle walking, fabulous views and great company. I find myself now reaching for the bird book after walking and appreciating what is around me more.
