New trips include hiking the Highlands, visiting four of Britain’s National Parks and stays in luxury, wilderness lodges
Some of Scotland’s most exceptional destinations can be found within the country’s beloved National Parks; perfect playgrounds for outdoor enthusiasts teeming with mighty mountains, rolling tundra, pinewood forests and fascinating wildlife. Specialist tour operator Wilderness Scotland has recently announced two new wilderness walking adventures through the region’s remarkable parks—from the high points of the Cairngorms to the stunning Lake District of neighbouring England—and one new luxury walking experience, exploring the beaches and islands of Sutherland and the wild north Highland coast.
Explore the high reaches and hidden corners of Scotland’s grandest mountain range – the mighty Cairngorms. Hike among the majestic scenery of hills, forests and lochs while enjoying outstanding hospitality on an all-inclusive 7-day tour. Based out of a private wilderness lodge in beautiful Glen Feshie, travelers discover the northern and western side of this huge National Park, focusing on hikes to some of the finest peaks in the area rising up to 4000ft in height, all the while keeping an eye out for rare and iconic species such as ptarmigan, capercaillie, red squirrels and osprey.
Take in the best scenery to be found in Scotland and England on this unique tour of four National Parks, enjoying some of the finest hiking in Britain. Discover the amazing contrast of landscapes, from the majestic mountains of the wild Highlands in the Cairngorms, Loch Lomond and the Trossachs, to the rolling and rugged Dales of Yorkshire and Lake District. Along the way, stay in charming country inns and hotels and try the various local Scottish and English delicacies such as whisky in the Highlands, cream tea in Yorkshire and Kendal Mint Cake in the Lakes.
This flagship luxury walking experience takes in the wildest scenery in the furthest reaches of northern Scotland. Based from the exclusive and luxurious Kinloch lodge, set beneath the craggy slopes of Ben Loyal, travelers explore one of the quietest areas of the Highlands alongside an expert guide, surrounded by superb food and drink. Set out each day to hike the wild and spectacular landscapes – the peaceful mountains, endless beaches and serene islands of Sutherland – and stop in at ruined castles, abandoned villages, and an iron-age ‘broch’ throughout the journey.
