5 days based in one centre

See 'Offers'  for special deal on for 20-24th July 2018

Cost: £710 includes ferry and a boat trip. Excludes accommodation, meals and drinks

Basing ourselves in one accommodation slows the pace by not having to pack up each day. This enables us to get to know one region much better and appreciate it more on foot. You will encounter the dramatic and wild mountain terrain of North-West Scotland with its many lochs, sea inlets, mountainous peninsulas, pine woodlands and waterfalls. This region has so much to offer and ranks amongst the finest scenery in all of Scotland. As well as a choice of hikes, we will take to boats and see atmospheric ruins in spectacular settings. Noted for its tranquil rural setting and spectacular views, the B&B will provide a place of peace and restoration. Loch Ness and Glen Coe are passed through on this trip.
