Single supp available
through Kintail's wide Highland valleys flanked by big mountains, along coastal paths with enormous views, passing impressive waterfalls and marvelling at landscapes yellow with gorse in May and purple with heather in August, visit places such as the remote peninsula Glenelg with its mysterious 2000 year old towers, witness the immense scale of scapes offered on the Isle of Skye and enjoy warm hospitality in delightful coastal villages returning with a bag full of inspirational experiences and memories.
Wildlife, Relaxation & Culture
Spotting seals, otters, eagles and a multitude of seabirds is very much part of any outdoor experience in Scotland as is strolling on a white beach, exploring a romantic castle and discovering evidence of past lives where you least expect. Unwind in the expanse of natural wilderness, enjoy delicious and scenic picnics and a 'wee blether' with the locals in the pub at the end of the day!
Accommodation & Locations
This holiday offers 2 different locations: the scattered settlement of Shiel Bridge at the foot of the Kintail mountains and the tiny harbour town Uig in the north west of the Isle of Skye.
Each night, we eat together at our cosy hotel restaurant where you can choose from a menu of contemporary Scottish and European fare made from locally sourced Scottish produce.
A wonderful bonus of your holiday is travelling from and back to Glasgow through some of Scotland's most beautiful landscapes: Loch Lomond, the queen of Scottish lakes, dramatic Glen Coe, Britiain's giant Ben Nevis, the spectacular coastal route 'Road to the Isles' and the traditional ferry crossing from the Isle of Skye.
Your walking group has the personable size of no more than 8 persons and is accompanied throughout by an experienced and knowledgeable guide to make you holiday a wonderful and enjoyable experience.
