Overview
More
We provide hiking and mountain biking tours across the Highlands of Scotland, but often based in the Cairngorms National park where we have our own home base at Fraoch Lodge. We offer day hikes and camping trips all year round, and also skills courses if you are not so confident about heading out into the hills on your own. We often combine hiking tours with more cultural activities like visiting a distillery or Loch Ness.

Thank you. We are so glad you felt comfortable and at home. No doubt Gregor will be keen to be tested on his Star Wars knowledge again should you return. I believe that a fascination for Star Wars can last a few years!
