Treks and Guided Walks

Kingshouse & The Buachailles

The famous scene that greets travellers arriving in Glen Coe from across Rannoch Moor, whether on foot or by car, is the towering Buachaille Etive Mòr . The most photographed mountain in Scotland guards the entrance to Glen Coe itself and is a playground for climbers and walkers alike. The Kingshouse Hotel & Bunkhouse is steeped in the mountaineering history of 'The Big Buachaille' and will be our base as we attempt to summit its 2 Munros, as well as the neighbouring Munros of 'The Wee Buachaille'. Despite Buachaille translating as "herdsman", we will aim to guide, encourage and support you to complete the challenge of bagging these 4 Munros.

We provide you with a qualified Mountain Leader, who will guide you to the rocky tops of these magnificent mountains. We also organise your accommodation (choice of hotel or bunkhouse), so all you need to do is concentrate on the walk itself.

Lochnagar & Upper Deeside

Based in Braemar in the north-east Scotland we will explore the mountains and glens of the eastern Cairngorms. This hillwalking holiday will give you a chance to bag a few Munros, explore ancient Scots Pine woodland, and walk in the footsteps of royalty. With accommodation taken care of and the guiding in the hands of one our excellent UK Mountain Leaders, you can just relax and enjoy the walking.

Scottish National Trail: Stage 2

At nearly 540 miles the Scottish National Trail is no small undertaking. From the foothills of the Cheviot in Kirk Yetholm to the wild Cape Wrath, the North-West tip of Scotland, this long-distance trail truly has it all. Over the next 3 summers (2022-2024) we will be walking the length of Scotland in 6 stages. We invite you to join us for all or part of this incredible journey.

Stage 2 begins where we finished Stage 1 in the spring, in Ratho. From here we will be following the Union Canal, the John Muir Trail, a short section of the West Highland Way, and part of the Rob Roy Way to arrive in Aberfeldy after 7 days of varied walking.

St Cuthbert’s Way

St Cuthbert's Way is a 100km (62.5 mile) trek which begins at Melrose Abbey and finishes on Holy Island, just off the Northumberland coast. The trail follows in St Cuthbert's 7th century footsteps through the rolling borderlands of Northumberland and the Scottish Borders. The trek culminates in a unique finish across the tidal causeway to Holy Island. It offers a fantastic introduction to long distance walking; a route steeped in historical and cultural interest, we take our time so we can take it all in during 5 days of walking.

Affric Kintail Way moutains

Affric Kintail Way

The Affric Kintail Way is a superb cross-country route from Drumnadrochit on the banks of Loch Ness, to Morvich on the west coast. We extend the route to a 5-day, 62 mile, coast-to-coast walk by beginning in Inverness and following the Great Glen Way south to Drumnadrochit on our first day. We then follow the Affric Kintail Way for the remaining 4 days to Morvich. This trail works its way westwards through the stunning Glen Affric National Nature Reserve, taking us to some of the most remote places on any of our treks. On night 5 we will stay at the Glen Affric Youth Hostel (Alltbeithe) in the heart of Glen Affric, before our final day's trekking through the Kintail mountains to Morvich. A unique trek, different to anything else we have on offer and with only moderate distances of walking on most days it is an achievable adventure for many.
