Exploring Scotland

Guided Journeys 

Scotland has some of the last true wilderness areas in the UK. For more than two millennia people have journeyed through this wilderness utilising the many glens, rivers and lochs that were the major road networks of history. They did this on foot or using small, lightweight boats to journey on the water. Our human-powered guided journeys are closely linked with those journeys, taking only what we need, immersing ourselves in the Scottish landscape and caring for the environment. Our adventure experiences are designed to reconnect us with nature, ourselves, the people who have travelled before us and are perfect to share with friends, family or like minded adventurers.

We recognise that due to the pandemic a lot of people are hesitant about joining an open guided trip. We also specialise in bespoke private group trips and can work with you, your friends and family to create your perfect experience.
