Detailed Description

The hinterlands of Scotland is home to some of the most rugged beauty in the world, from jagged peaks to the murky shores of inland lochs, from the rolling moors to the ceaseless surf crashing on the shores of the Isle of Skye. This eight-day vacation is dedicated to giving you a glimpse of the very best that this untrammeled wilderness has to offer, while still delivering the luxurious comforts that you’ve come to expect; and with friendly and personable locals with you every step of the way, this is sure to be an adventure unlike anything you’ve ever imagined.

Climb some of Scotland’s most imposing mountains to gain an impressive view over the gorgeous Highlands and out to sea beyond, taking in all of the natural grandeur that fills the countryside. Set out on board the resort’s own boat to tour the many islands that dot the western coast of Scotland, from the Small Isles to the Outer Hebrides. And hike through the wilderness of the inner Knoydart Peninsula before having a pint with the locals at the most isolated pub in the entire country, surrounded by scenery that can only be described as indescribable.

There is an undeniable romance in this wild countryside, a splendor all its own that fills your heart with its majesty and your eyes with its incomparable beauty. It is a part of the world too often missed and overlooked, offering glimpses into nature unlike anywhere else on the planet. Whether you’re looking for excitement or serenity, calm or adventure, a peaceful time of relaxation or a week of active exploration, you’ll find it all in this incredible corner of bonnie Scotland.
