Premier guided Scottish hillwalking tours
The Outer Hebrides is an astonishing 130 mile long archipelago lying 30 miles northwest of the west coast of Scotland. It is a land steeped in ancient history with mysterious standing stones and neolithic remains left by past inhabitants of these islands. Each of the 200 plus islands offers pristine white sand beaches, a mix of breathtaking scenery and rugged landscapes with amazing wildlife along with a rich, vibrant and unique Gaelic heritage. It is truly one of Europe's last remaining widernesses.
Put simply, the mould was broken after the Isle of Skye was created, leaving an island that is unique in its spectacular mountain landscapes and superb coastal scenery. This carefully crafted itinerary affords an insight into these two contrasting aspects of the ' Winged Isle ' and illustrates the enormous diversity that Skye has to offer.
This journey through the Western Highlands follows age old drovers' trails and ancient military roads, from the stunning bonnie banks of Loch Lomond in Scotland's Southern Uplands to Rannoch Moor, one of the most desolate and windswept places in the British Isles and from here into the heart of Scotland's most famous glen, atmospheric and brooding, Glencoe.
