That's why we read each of our client's reviews and although we don't respond to all of them, if it's glowing feedback then we get the satisfaction of helping to make your holidays truly memorable.
This trip in Scotland was very relaxing for me. To see so much of nature and to see only a few persons every day makes me enjoy this trip very much.
The company provided perfect service.
The walk was good but we found the route to be a little less remote than expected, we were overtaking people and bumping into people a little too often for our taste of wilderness and were surprised to be so close to main road so often. The last two days were the best as a little more in the open.
It was a wonderful experience! Walking from B&B to B&B provided the joys of walking through enchanting forests and the Scottish countryside, PLUS great food and comfortable accommodations each night. We highly recommend the trip.

Although the weather in Scotland can become glorious as early as the end of April, summer does not really kick-off till June when the weather is consistently mild for the next four months. We’d be lying if we said that Scottish summers are all warmth and sunshine, they’re not. But they’re also not wet and cold like people think. […]Continue Reading
