What should I pack?  For standard 'Trip & Trek' walks, wear boots or shoes you are comfortable walking in, extra socks, a waterproof jacket and trousers and layers. At our warmest time of year, our temperatures are an average of 15C / 59F and there is often rain.  But as we say here, its not uncommon to see four seasons in a day.

For our more serious hiking excursions, a packing list will be sent you.

What if I'm not so into hiking?  We appreciate that walking perhaps only appeals to one person and not the other when traveling together. We aim to strike a happy balance wherever possible by offering an alternative option- which could be visiting a castle, museum, distillery, shop, cafe/pub or simply chill time in front of an incredible view. We'll pick you up and regroup once the others have finished their hike.

What’s distinctive about Roaming Scotland? It’s our ‘Trip & trek’ that makes us distinctive.

Are children welcome? For 5 years old and upwards, children are welcome. If your child is less than 1.35m tall, you should let us know, so we can provide a suitable booster seat.

Flexibility of a tour? With consultation on the day, tours might be modified, or the order of the itinerary adjusted, to take into account weather or tides.

Do you do hotel pickups in the departure cities? Only for private groups. Otherwise for scheduled trips we only pick up from our central meeting points to ensure a rapid departure and as much time as possible seeing the sights.

When should I get to our meeting point? Please plan to arrive 15 minutes before departure. Due to waiting restrictions, we can't wait for you if you're late.

What happens if I'm late or miss the tour? If you miss the minibus because you’re late, our cancellation policy applies.

Full payment of the excursion is to be made 21 days before the commencement of the trip. Discounted costs will apply and be refunded if others join this excursion.

What is your cancellation policy? For all one-day and multi-day tours, the following cancellation charges shall apply (depending on the effective date of cancellation):-

cancellation more than 21 days before the tour date: you will be charged 10% of the price paid by you in respect of your tour;

cancellation less than 21 days before the tour date: we shall be entitled to charge the full amount of the price paid by you in respect of your tour unless we agree (entirely at our discretion) to pay you a partial refund. We will advise you of our decision on this upon receiving your cancellation request/enquiry.

When does a trip have a guaranteed departure? Once two people are booked, or when one pays the fare for two, the trip goes.

We regret that you can’t pre-book a specific seat

We’ll make regular comfort breaks.

Do we need to bring our own lunch? You will need to on the excursions where this is specified. For other tours, you can bring a packed lunch if you want to. However there are cafes and shops to choose from en route.

What about travel insurance? We advise you take out travel insurance especially to cover cancellation of your trip.
