Guided hiking in Glencoe
Many parts of the Scottish Highlands are spectacular, but few compare to the awesome mountain scenery of the Glencoe Area. This dramatic glaciated landscape of high peaks deep glens has drawn mountaineers and hillwalkers for centuries. Here we do some of the more “off the beaten track” peaks.
Bag some Munros in Glencoe this summer under the expert guidance or a qualified, local guide.
The dramatic history of Glencoe, the rivalry of the opposing clans of Macdonald and Campbell, is not as evident to the naked eye as it once was, but the scenery is still imposing and rivals Skye in beauty. When you gaze up at the mountains surrounding you here, it brings home to you how hardy the native Scots must have been to derive a living from the land. To think that people used to walk this terrain with their cattle in kilts/plaid while we need gortex and sturdy hiking boots!
At the end of the day, we’ll also have a cosy, comfortable cottage to retreat to and a hot shower. There’ll be homemade cake on the table and a hot brew to keep you going until the evening meal.
It’s still a simple formula for our trips – walk, eat sleep, not so different from the Highlanders of old, with a few modern comforts thrown in.
