Key Information

 

Accommodation

Great quality hotels & Bed and Breakfasts.

All breakfasts are included. Lunches and evening meals will be by flexible arrangement but the aim will be to experience good quality Scottish cuisine in all our locations. Individuals are welcome to make their own arrangements if they want of course.

Welcome dinner and a farewell dinner is included in the price, so you are only responible for the rest of the days :-).

 

Fitness

Most activities will involve only short walks but there may be times when we are able to split up and create two groups for those who would like to take a longer hike. There may be times when you will have the option to be working on exposed, uneven ground, including cliffs which will require you to be sure-footed with good balance. A reasonable level of fitness and agility will allow you to participate in most activities.

To this end please makes sure you have sturdy waterproof boots, waterproof and warm outdoor clothing including gloves and hats.

It’s Scotland! As they say “if you don’t like the weather wait 5 minutes”, but do expect variable conditions, including sunshine, wind and rain. After all it’s what makes Scotland what it is.
