WEST HIGHLAND WAY 24 June - 1 July 2012 29 July - 5 August 2012 £599/pp Scotland’s first long-distance route provides a unique chance to experience the subtle change in scenery and terrain from the gentler south to more mountainous north. Tis is a challenging 96 miles (154 km) route from Milngavie just outside Glasgow, to Fort William at the base of Ben Nevis, via Loch Lomond, Rannoch Moor and the Devil’s Staircase. Te gradually changing landscapes are forever memorable. Local services will be used throughout, thus reducing our carbon footprint.


CAPE WRATH TRAIL 17 May - 2 June 2012 £1739/pp Trek from Inverie on the edge of Knoydart, to Cape Wrath on the north west tip of Scotland. Tis is an achievable and adventurous trip covering about 170 miles of fascinating wild landscapes and ever changing vistas in 14 one day stages.


It’s hard to believe there is so much wild, untamed terrain in the UK. It is a route of incomparable contrasts, of wild passes and lonely glens, between awe-inspiring mountains and along stunning coasts. Te opportunity for wild-life spotting is considerable, as we pass through habitats where one would not be surprised to see creatures like - red deer, golden eagles, ptarmigan, otters, seals, basking sharks…. to name but a few. Tis is a great adventure for the intrepid!


SUTHERLAND TRAIL 26 June - 2 July 2012 2 - 8 September 2012 £649 Starting at the picturesque port of Lochinver on the NW coast, and finishing at Tongue on the northern sea board, lies a route of constant interest, variety of terrain and some degree of challenge.

miles of wild untamed terrain. In addition, pleasant stretches of quiet country roads allow you to almost switch the brains to your feet off for a while. Te area is really good for wildlife and flowers, and the scenery is without compare.


SKYE TRAIL 17 - 16 May 2012 3 - 12 July 2012 9 - 18 September 2012 £899/pp Te Isle of Skye or ‘winged island’ with its 300 miles coast line, is one of those places that inspires with its at times savage natural beauty, its history and wildlife. Also known as the Misty Island (Eilean a’Cheò), its pervading Gaelic culture gives a character that is quite different. Tis very varied route from Broadford to Duntulm is some 80 odd miles (130km), and the whole combination draws one back to the island again and again.
