Wilderness Walking - Isle of Skye

Customer Rating: 5

Great experience. Beautiful scenery. Would love to do another similar walk. Hiking was challenging but not from altitude changes, climbing or descending. It was length of time on feet that made it challenging.

Our guided walking holidays and hiking tours are the ultimate way to see Scotland on two feet.

Choose from 18 different holidays and over 100 departure dates, across a mix of grades. You’re sure to find the ideal walking trip.

We base all our walking packages in small hotels, guest houses or Highland lodges.

To ensure a high level of comfort and friendly service, we check the accommodation you stay in. It is generally 3-4 star as standard and offers a high level of comfort and friendly service. Our luxury walking holidays also feature stays at 5 star hotels. Many of our tours are all inclusive walking holidays. You will enjoy daily walks and hikes, led by our expert guides and you’ll only carry with you what you need for the day. Our group tours are ideal for single or solo travellers as you get the chance to join like-minded people.

Walking tours are available in the following locations:

Private Walking Tours

You can book each of the walking holidays listed above on a private basis. Private tours are ideal for getting your closest friends, family or colleagues together. Choose to book out any of the available and open departures dates on a private basis, only for your group.

Single Centre or Multi Centre Tours

Choose from walking tours that either go from point to point:

Like our guided West Highland Way and Speyside Way holidays.

If you prefer to base yourself in one or two locations, then choose one of our signature tours. The Knoydart Peninsula and Outer Hebrides and Skye walking trips.

We start our hikes from a central location which allows us to explore the surrounding landscape, wildlife and culture in detail.

Luxury Walking Holidays

Do you prefer 5 Star accommodation in private lodges and hotels? If so, our Luxury Walking tours might be more suitable. Their remote locations allow us to explore parts of Scotland that many rarely see.

Our luxury walking trips include the North Highland Coast, a trip based in a stunning Highland lodge, the epitome of Highland Hygge. Or the Glencoe and the Highlands tour, based at two of the highest rated hidden gem hotels in Scotland.
