The tour begins in the Perthshire Highlands, where we spend the first three nights, with time to visit freshwater Loch Tay, Glen Lyon and the beautiful Mount Schiehallion. We then continue to the western coast of Scotland, going by sea in a rib boat from Oban to Loch Leven, where three days are spent exploring Glen Coe and the Trossachs.

Outline Itinerary

  1. Day 1: Arrive Perthshire; Loch Tay hike

    Your highlands journey begins with a rendezvous in Perth. This ancient and historic city is 32 miles from Edinburgh and located beside the River Tay.

  2. Day 2: Hiking Glen Lyon

    Today we’ll explore Glen Lyon, once described by Walter Scott as the “longest, loneliest and loveliest glen in Scotland”.

  3. Day 3: Trek up Schiehallion Mountain

    On our final day in Perthshire, we’ll aim to climb the iconic hill of Schiehallion, otherwise known as the ‘fairy hill of Caledonia’ (local legend holds that the caves beneath Schiehallion are home to fairies and other supernatural beings!), an achievable munro in a remarkably beautiful setting.

  4. Day 4: By sea to Glen Coe

    After breakfast, we depart for the port town of Oban on the west coast of Scotland, where we’ll have a short while to explore before taking a RIB (zodiac) boat trip to Glen Coe.

  5. Day 5: Wilderness and a Waterfall

    Our walk today starts from the village of Kinlochleven, as we follow a good trail through forest to reach the ‘Grey Mare’s Tail’, a beautiful waterfall enclosed within the Moffat Valley.

  6. Day 6: Hiking in Glen Coe

    Today we journey to Glen Coe, where we summit a rarely-climbed peak on the northern side of the glen, which offers some of the best views.

  7. Day 7: Rob Roy's Grave & Creag an Tuirc

    Today we start with a driven transfer out of Glen Coe taking us south to Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park.
