A guided hiking holiday in Scotland (circular routes only)
This short guided hiking holiday in the Highlands of Scotland delivers some of the most challenging mountain walking the Highlands has to offer. We trace the edge of highly impressive cliff & corrie scenery to gain some of Scotland’s most distinguished peaks. All-in-all 10 Munros in 4 days.
This trip is like Ben Nevis on steroids. Though we are going to climb Scotland’s most famous peak on our guided walking holiday, we’re not going to do it the easy way. We’re taking in more than one mountain and the Carn Mor Dearg Arete. We’ll see far fewer people and we’ll also be able to admire the spectacular cliffs of the north face, which many people can’t see at all from the so-called “tourist” path. You’ll be able to understand why so many climbers flock to the Ben.
If you’re not tired after climbing Britain’s highest peak, don’t worry we have more in store. We’ll also be heading up Cairngorm – the peak from which Britain’s largest national park takes it’s name. (Don’t worry we’ll explain why when it’s not even the highest peak in the area.)
