This unique tour is more active than our usual land tours and features daily hikes that are easy to moderate in difficulty. We travel from the Isle of Mull in the south, along the western edge of highland Scotland to the Isle of Lewis in the Outer Hebrides (Western Isles), sometimes along the mainland coast, but more often across incomparably beautiful – and fascinating – islands. To fully enjoy and visit all the sites on this itinerary one should be in good physical condition (and, obviously, enjoy hiking!).
This is the perfect opportunity to explore all that the western Highlands and Islands of Scotland have to offer: prehistoric stone circles, burial cairns, and settlements; quaint villages; Gaelic culture; and remarkable wildlife—all amidst dramatic land- and seascapes. This will be Scotland seen slowly, with time for in-depth exploration at each site and a maximum of 15 travelers.


Pricing:
$6,245 (13-15 participants) per person double occupancy
$6,445 (10-12 participants) per person double occupancy
