Scotland Highlands Trek

Legendary hiking with walk-up ascent of Ben Nevis

While Scot­land may evoke an image of bag­pipe-play­ing, kilt-wear­ing, sin­gle-malt-drink­ing folks sit­ting around old cas­tles watch­ing pre­his­toric crea­tures swim­ming in the Lochs — which does hap­pen! — it should also evoke an image of a thriv­ing and mod­ern coun­try where you will find more hik­ing boots than bagpipes. 

You’ll earn your cozy coun­try inns stays at night, with reward­ing and some­times chal­leng­ing, hik­ing through the rugged coun­try­side, where your mind wan­ders, imag­in­ing the rich his­to­ry of this land of ancient legends.
