About this trip

This active adventure kicks off in Edinburgh, where you'll get to explore the gothic castle and hike up an extinct volcano (before sipping some whiskey as a reward). But the adventures are just getting started. Onto the wild beauty of the Scottish Highlands, you'll take guided hike in the Cairngorms- spotting red squirrels and wildcats - cruise on Loch Ness - spotting mythological monsters-  and uncover gorgeous Glencoe. Finally, you'll wind up in Scotland's largest city, Glasgow, where you have the option to dine in the home of a local (and sample some haggis).

DAY 1 - Start Edinburgh

Edinburgh

Royal mile, old Castle, home of the brave, Edinburgh is going to turn it on from start to end. With days of good time ahead, go out in search of haggis, a whisky bar and join the jolly locals before meeting up with the crew tonight, in anticipation of the good times that are yet to come. We'll get to bond over an include dinner tonight, swapping stories and talking about the adventures ahead.

DAY 2 - Edinburgh

Edinburgh

Rise and shine - it's time for a morning hike to Arthur's Seat, a spectacular extinct volcano forming most of Holyrood Park. After, if you want to get the low down on the history of this city why not join our local guide for an optional tour of Edinburgh Castle? Or maybe you'll do a spot of tartan shopping on Princes Street. Strictly for the purpose of being cultural, you should probably make time for a traditional whiskey experience tonight, where we'll sip single malt while locals tell us folkloric Scottish stories. The things we do for cultural immersion...

DAY 3 - Edinburgh to Scottish Highlands

Edinburgh

It's time to blaze a trail out of Edinburgh & head for the Scottish Highlands.

Scottish Highlands

Already blown away the rugged mountain scenery en route, we'll arrive in the Scottish Highlands amped up for some spectacular natural beauty. We'll take a half day guided hike today in the Cairngorms, a sprawling national park that's home to Britain's most loved, endangered creatures such as red squirrels and wildcats. After soaking up all of that incredible scenery, it's time to enjoy an included dinner followed by a quiz night.

INCLUDED EXPERIENCES

  • Guided Half Day Hike in the Cairngorms

DAY 4 - Scottish Highlands to West Highlands

Scottish Highlands

Departing Drumnadrochit this morning we'll get to enjoy an included cruise around the iconic Loch Ness. Don't be disappointed if you don't spot the mythical monster - the scenery more than makes up for it.

West Highlands

Arriving in Glencoe we'll refuel with lunch before a glorious guided hike. Then we'll arrive in Oban where we'll grab dinner and settle in for the night.

INCLUDED EXPERIENCES

  • Try and spot 'Nessie' on a cruise along the spectacular Loch Ness

  • Guided Hiking Afternoon - Glencoe

DAY 5 - West Highlands to Glasgow via Stirling

West Highlands

After a few days of remote and rugged goodness, a change of pace in Scotland's biggest city is sure to fire things up a notch.

Stirling

We make a stop in Stirling, known for its famous Castle nestled right on a hill, and the town where William Wallace took on the English and yelled "Freeeedom!" We'll take another epic guided hike to explore the local scenery.

Glasgow

Get involved with everything great about Glasgow. Live music on every corner, a gothic cathedral & plenty of quirky characters make this city unique. An optional this evening could see you dining in the home of a local as they cook you regional delicacies.

INCLUDED EXPERIENCES

  • Guided Hike in the region of Loch Lomond

FREE TIME ADD-ONS

  • Eat in a local pub with the owners and be serenaded by local musicians, Glasgow

    GBP 37.00

DAY 6 - End Glasgow

Glasgow

After breakfast we'll leave Scotland today, but the windswept beauty of the Highlands will live long in our memories. Say goodbye at breakfast as it will be the last bite our crew has together - until the next adventure that is. Make sure to swap details and start planning your next trip!
