Scotland Slower Adventure Tours

Scotland Slower Adventures

  • Relaxing and impressive Scottish Highland walks, castles, history and whisky
  • Exploration of Blair Castle and the Hermitage with its towering Douglas firs
  • Hand-picked accommodation in traditional towns and willages
  • Easy-going cycling past the heather-covered hills of Perthshire
  • Bustling and colourful Portree and the ruins of Skara Brae on Orkney

A Slower Adventure in Scotland gives you the freedom to really explore an area in depth, it's culture, landscapes, food and history. Taking shorter walks and cycles offers the chance to discover other aspects of these areas too, such as the food and whisky and to meet some of the friendly locals! You will feel like you are really connecting to these mystical and mythical landscapes.

Macs Adventure offers some distinctive tours in Scotland where you can explore in a more relaxed way. The Walking in the Scottish Highlands tour has you not only staying in charming and characterful accommodations, but also discovering scenes of the past, such as the Battle of Killicrankie which happened in 1689 and Castle Menzies, a 16th century Scottish estate with a walled garden. Enjoy walking through ancient pine forests and amongst blossoming purple heather whilst also sampling world-famous whiskey en route on the Speyside Whisky Trail. Or why not Walk on Orkney where you can discover Skara Brae, the best preserved Neolithic Site in northern Europe.

If your idea of a fantastic experience is to walk or cycle amongst Scotland's fine scenery, have the time to discover it's history and culture at the same time, stay in charming accommodations and taste a wee dram of whisky or two, chat to the locals in a traditional pub, and visit captivating towns and villages, then a Slower Adventure tour in Scotland is definitely for you.
