Q: How challenging is the walking?
A: Most people that book on a trip have a different idea of what is challenging and it’s all relative which is why we grade our walks (please see grading section at the bottom of each web page). You can also chat with us if you’re still not sure what trip is best for you.

A: We will book restaurants where possible and generally encourage the groups to eat together in the evenings but you can also have time to yourself if you prefer.
Q: How do I know what equipment/gear to bring with me?
A: We provide a recommended kit list for all bookings once we have received a deposit. We can also discuss gear with you anytime.
Q: What will the weather be like in Scotland?
A: The weather in Scotland can be very mixed. However, we have many more days of sunshine than people think! Be prepared for anything, and we will give you an update a couple of days before your trip commences.
Q: What about the biting midgies?
A: We recommend ‘Smidge’ as a repellent, its also good against tics! The midgies only come out when there is no wind and little sunshine.

A: We allow well behaved dogs on some of our trips. Please get in touch for further info.
Q: What are the best airports for arrivals for your Scotland trips?
A: For our Scottish trips, Edinburgh or Glasgow for Arran Coastal Way, West Highland Way and Island Hopping trip. For Outer Hebrides, North West trip and 3 day mountain adventures Inverness airport is a good option but you can also take a train or bus from Edinburgh to Inverness/Aviemore.
Q: Is it really necessary to take out insurance?
A: We highly recommend you take out insurance and make sure that it covers you for the activity you are participating in, (for example hill walking).
