Adventure of the Week: The Arran Coastal Way

10 Jul , 2019  

Looking back over all that we have written about, it came as a big shock that we have never once written a blog about one of our oldest, best-loved trips. For most people in Macs Adventure, this Island has played a large part in our lives. It is a place of true wilderness, of community […]

Adventure of the Week: Tenerife: Mount Teide to the Coast

3 Jul , 2019  

Summer has been a bit of a late starter in the UK this year. The benefits of a bit of sunshine on our physical and mental health is undisputed, so now is the time to start thinking about that swift break later in the year to squeeze a little more sun out of 2019. The […]

Adventure of the Week: The GR5 Trail

27 Jun , 2019  

There are a few treks in the world that get all the good press and deservedly so. However, this does make the popularity of these treks skyrocket, but behind every great trek, there is a lovely alternative or two and this week we are going to focus on one of these. So, if you have […]

Adventure of the Week: Thomas Hardy’s Dorset

19 Jun , 2019  

England is a patchwork of poetry and prose, sewn together by master craftsmen. Wordsworth’s words weave together vivid visions of the lake district, its fells and lakes, and Chaucer describes the Kent countryside so descriptively you feel like you have just come back. The South West of England is similarly covered by Thomas Hardy, his […]

Adventure of the Week: Cycling Catalonia – Beaches, Wine & Dali

Adventure of the Week: The Glen Affric Trail

While we all ponder the damage we are doing to the environment and think of ways to make things better, there is a place in Scotland that has been trying to press the reset switch since the 1960s. It has long been known as one of the most beautiful places in Scotland, but great strides […]

The Cleveland Way turns 50

4 Jun , 2019  

When Macs Adventure first began in 2003, there were a couple of walking routes that we launched with. The West Highland Way and Hadrian’s Wall Path were the ones we originally sold, but very quickly we decided to expand our product range in both Scotland and England and one of the very first trips was […]

Adventure of the Week: Tuscany: Pisa to Florence Cycling

29 May , 2019  

There are some parts of the world where there is such a concentration of beauty that it is almost unfair to the rest of us. Try cramming rolling hills, vineyards, hilltop villages and some of the most iconic architecture in the world into a small area and you have Tuscany in Italy. The best way […]

Adventure of the Week: Croatia Bike & Boat: Southern Island Hopping

22 May , 2019  

Much of this year’s Bike & Boat allocation may be gone, but there are still a couple of hidden gems available for this summer. All over Europe, there are hidden corners of paradise just waiting to be explored/relaxed in. A lot of the Mediterranean coastline has these sparkling little hideaways, where you can sit by […]
