Highlights of the Highlands

The Scottish Highlands are easy to visualize. Misty moors, lush glens, ancient castles and the rapture of folklore (or is it folklore?) surrounding mythic sea creatures. The verdant isles, jagged coastline, shimmering cities and deep lochs are the views that a dram of whisky were designed for! Shaggy Highland cattle set the scene. Plockton. Old Man of Storr. Kelpie. Black Cuillin. These names are like a roll call of spirits.


Hike into the Mythical Moors

Challenge Your Inner Warrior

This is a place to recalibrate and be consumed by all that the Highlands have to offer. The tundra-like landscape gives way to remote beaches, still lakes and the hulking shadows of Ben Nevis Mountain. Elusive wildlife like the tabby-like Scottish wildcat, pine marten and red deer surprise the quiet hiker. We glide kayaks through the glass-like serenity of Sound of Arisaig. There will be castle ruins, rural villages and seafood hooked fresh from the denim-blue waters. Invite your inner warrior to the challenge and transformation that can only be found in our Highlands hiking adventure.

The trip was fabulous. Emy was the best! We would absolutely hike with her again. Scotland was breathtaking, and all the hikes were fabulous too. Can’t say enough good things about the experience from day 1 to day 7. Thank you!”
