Thistle Trekking – Guided UK Walking Holidays
Thistle Trekking provides guided walking holidays in the UK, including West Highland Way, Cape Wrath Trail and The Skye Trail. All our guided treks give you the luxury of enjoying the walk without having to worry about organising all the details, including accommodation and baggage transfer, or worry about trying to find your way. This means you can just enjoy the trail and let us do all the worrying for you!
Our Most Popular Guided Walking Holidays
We’re Good to Go!
We are delighted to be able to once again take bookings for private guided walks, navigation courses and mountaineering days. We are now accepting bookings and our brilliant team of qualified and experienced guides and instructors are desperate to get back to work. We have adapted our operating procedures to protect you and your guide. We will be following the government guidelines to deliver our activities in accordance with the relevant safety measures to help prevent the potential spread of COVID-19.
Our open group treks won’t begin again until spring 2021 but we have a packed calendar and are looking forward to getting back on our fantastic long-distance trails. New to our 2021 calendar are the Affric Kintail Way, St Cuthbert’s Way and the Arran Coastal Way.
Please get in touch if you have any questions about our treks and guided walks.
Why Book With Thistle Trekking
At Thistle Trekking we understand how important it is to make sure that your guided walking holiday is well organised, stress-free and on a beautiful trail. We also pride ourselves on making sure your whole experience with us is friendly, fun and a holiday you will never forget! Many of our customers come back to us year after year and welcomed back each time as friends.
All of our walking holidays include a trek manager, accommodation, baggage transfer, and a support vehicle – so you can skip a section of the trail if you need to. Also, you will of course have a qualified guide (UK Mountain Leader or higher) with you on every day of the trail.
I’ve done trips with many outdoor companies during the past 40 years. Thistle Trekking stands among the best of these businesses in my experience. I recommend them without hesitation.
I have had a fabulous week and cannot think of a single thing that would improve it, not like me but I am genuinely lost for something to moan about!
The perfect combination of nature, friendship, sport, culture, landscapes and fun. It was good organisation and a wonderful guide. We had beautiful holidays and we made good friends!
I have to say, because of Thistle Trekking, it has given me a new lease of life, thank you

It was excellent and would not hesitate in booking another trip.
