Hiking Scotland’s North Highlands & Isle of Lewis

July 17, 2023 - July 28, 2023



Join archaeologist Mary MacLeod Rivett and a small group of like-minded travelers on this 12-day tour of Scotland’s remote north Highlands and the Isle of Lewis in the Outer Hebrides. Mostly we will explore off the well-beaten Highland tourist trail, and along the way we will be treated to an abundance of archaeological and historical sites, striking scenery – including high cliffs, sea lochs, sandy and rocky bays, mountains, and glens – and, of course, excellent hiking. Scotland’s long and varied history stretches back many thousands of years, and archaeological remains ranging from Neolithic cairns and stone circles to Iron Age brochs (ancient dry stone buildings unique to Scotland), medieval castles, and deserted clearance villages cover these landscapes. Seven of our touring days involve hikes of 4.5 to 6 miles per day, and we will rest and reflect in comfortable hotels that extend Highland warmth and hospitality.
