  • West Highland Way

    Dan, our resident wildlife expert, took to the West Highland Way and recorded his whole journey.  This video shows you the full route, from the starting point in Milngavie, through all the points of interest, to the finish in Fort William.  Dan points out some interesting things along the route that you shouldnt miss, but this is not a video laden with spoilers.  Every journey on the West Highland Way is different, dictated by the weather, the people you meet and the chance encounters with wildlife (human and otherwise!) Get a taste of what is in store on the West Highland Way with Dan.  

  • North Coast 500

    To drive around the north of Scotland is to drive through some of the best scenery in the world.  Pristine, white-sand beaches with turquoise waters, towering mountains and peaceful little villages all combine to make the drive an outstanding one.  Add to this some of the best day-hiking in the country and you have yourselves a wonderful holiday. 

  • Highlands & Isle of Skye Rail and Hike

    The West Coast Line from Glasgow up to Fort William is a rail journey like no other.  As the city and suburbs slowly dissipate, the scenery out the window becomes wilder by the second.  Then to add to this the journey on the Jacobite steam train to Mallaig is one of the greatest rail journeys in the world.  After that, you spend time exploring the mystical Isle of Skye on foot, one of the greatest island landscapes in the world. 

  • The Great Glen Way

    A geological fault line in the Highlands of Scotland split the country in two and filled in with three great lochs, Loch Lochy, Loch Oich and the famous Loch Ness. There is a path that links this route, from Fort William in the West, to Inverness in the East, the Great Glen Way.  It is a great mix of easy canal-side walking, heady mountain scenery and wonderful local character.
