Scotland Slower Adventure Tours

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. Also enjoy viewing the flora and fauna on Islay and Jura while you walk through the blossoming purple heather, before tasting some of Scotland's finest whisky. Let's not forget cycling on Scotland's Castle Trail on which you can explore Scone Palace, where 42 Scottish kings were crowned. 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.
