Scot Mountain Holidays are unique in Scotland. Whether you’re on a winter skills course, guided walking holidays Scotland, self guided mountain biking trip or family adventure, you join Andy and Rebecca (and wee Gregor) in their home. As owner-operators with over 28 years experience between them as guide, instructor, accommodation provider and chief, Andy and Rebecca’s holidays are un-paralleled in providing such an all round immersive and affordable experience.
With a background in Geology, Andy is a fully qualified Mountain Leader (Winter and International ML's) with over 14 years commercial guiding and instructing experience. Influenced by the uncompromising Cairngorms his coaching in mountain navigation and winter skills is unsurpassed as well as being Scotland’s leading exponent in Scottish Snow-holing. With a life long interest in nature and as a passionate conservationist he has acquired an unparalleled all round knowledge of the natural history of the region. He is justifiably proud of the infinite variety that Scotland has to offer, both in terms of the dramatic landscapes with their ever changing moods, the natural and historical heritage and fine food.
Rebecca has developed a renowned reputation for her amazing home-cooking. With her love of travel, culinary influences both local and from further a field are brought to bear on her imaginative dishes. As a keen gardener her own organic produce along with locally gathered wild food on hikes is used in the creation of her delicious food.
Whether it’s their own Cairngorm National Park base of Fraoch Lodge or a grand lodge or quaint cottage elsewhere in these stunning Highlands of Scotland, their “Home-stay” style Adventure Holidays come with a uniquely warm and welcoming hospitality that ensures guests become a part of their “extended family”.
Having lived in the Scottish Highlands for over 14 years no other company quite allows you to “get under the skin” of the beautiful scenery, rich culture and abundant wildlife of this superb country of Scotland. On a Scot Mountain Holidays trip you’re quite literally “living with the locals”.
This winning mixture of adventure, great home food and homely hospitality are the fertile ground of camaraderie, kinship and frequently new friendships. Guests often leave with a sense of place and belonging, and vowing to maintain their elevated standard of living!
So come and join us for a wonderful adventure on our walking holidays Scotland.
