We visit the wild and rugged terrain of north west Scotland and the Outer Hebrides. Walk among seascapes of unmatched beauty, wander across moors ablaze with purple heather, cross pristine sea lochs and travel to the magical islands of Lewis, Harris & Skye. Dine on seafood fresh from the ocean and spend evenings listening to traditional music while sampling the “water of life” – malt whisky. Our walks take us through an irresistible mix of highlands, rugged seascapes, tranquil lochs and gentle glens. Charming hotels, superb seafood, lively Scottish music and local guides provide the perfect combination of walking and culture.
