Out on the edge with St Donan - the small isles

Cost: £375 - 570 (depending on the 3 or 4 day options)

The voyage to the Small Isles is an experience of truly getting away from it all.

The Isle of Skye Experience

4 days

Cost: £538 includes all ferry costs; excludes accommodation, meals and drinks.

 

Journey to Skye, taking in the scenic history of the region by way of castles and ancient brochs. Our walks will take in some of the best dramatic mountain scenery along lesser challenging trails. Our road journey circumnavigates most of the island ensuring we see charming ports and rugged coastlines against a backdrop of misty hills and moody seas. The return route is via the mainland’s west coast, seeing a good extent of this part of the Highlands.

Wild and Rugged North West

Cost: £564 - 975 (depending on the 4 or 7 day options)

includes a boat trip, excludes accommodation, meals and drinks.

An encounter with the dramatic and wild mountain terrain with an abundance of lochs, waterfalls, and fine beaches. Describing this area will make you run short of superlatives! This tour is carefully put together to ensure a good cross section of walks that will take us into stunning places in this wilderness and to the very far north coast. The mighty Cairngorm Mountains are passed through on this trip and there will be the opportunity to see some of the stunning Pictish stones embossed with mysterious symbols of great artistry.


Length of the Outer Hebrides

7 days

Cost: £1,063 includes all ferry costs. Excludes accommodation, meals and drinks.

If you like expansive horizons and isolated shorelines of white sands backed by wild hills, then this is the tour for you. This itinerary takes in the full length of the Outer Hebrides – the islands out on the edge – and we’ll be travelling and walking on Barra, Eriskay, South Uist, Benbecula, North Uist, Harris and Lewis. Encounters with the gently spoken Gaelic locals makes you aware that you’ve arrived in a different culture. These remote islands out on the extreme edge bring an other-worldly feel. You seem to see everything through a different lens as the light is so special up in these northern latitudes. The absence of trees and vast sea and sky scapes bring a great awareness of unhindered openness. The tour connects with the best scenery, including many fine white sand beaches and the Neolithic history along with the stories of the early Celtic saints among the atmospheric ruins. This is also strongly recommended as a November tour for the mellow quality of the sun riding low near the horizon and the mild temperatures that makes this a special get away from it all when everyone has given up on sightseeing.
