Scotland’s magnificent and varied landscape makes for some excellent walking and cycling opportunities and a walking or cycling holiday is one of the best ways of appreciating the country. From the awe-inspiring scenery of the Scottish Highlands, to the green and rolling lowlands, glens and stunning coastlines, Scotland should be high on the list for any keen walker or cyclist. Walkers' Britain offer a number of walking holidays (guided and self-guided) along some of the most famous routes in Scotland, along with some cycling holidays which will get you right to the heart of the Scottish Highlands.

This is a rugged, remote land of dramatic landscapes, from craggy mountains, ancient forests and brilliant green glens to fjord-like lochs and a complex coastline dotted with lonely islands and wave-beaten cliffs—perfect for walking, hiking, cycling and sailing adventures.

Explore the spectacular scenery of the unspoiled, uncrowded Inner Hebrides archipelago by bike and sailboat; or cycle through the timeless countryside of the Scottish Highlands, discovering historic towns, highland villages and stunning mountains, lochs and glens by bike.

Hike beneath or to the top of Ben Nevis, the UK's highest mountain; or follow the legend of cattle-rustling folk hero, Rob Roy, across some of Scotland's greatest landscapes.

Whichever itinerary you choose, you won’t regret an active trip out into Scotland’s epic wilderness.

Reducing waste

Our Waste Management Policy encourages our travellers to take their own reusable water bottles, coffee cups and reusable stuff sacks to avoid single use plastics. In the mountains of the Pyrenees and Mont Blanc our local partners reduce the amount of packaging taken on tour and ensure all waste is carried out from refuges that do not have road access to help dispose of it properly.

Supporting local

In the regions that we travel tourism is the main source of income for many local people. We support them by only working with local family run hotels and suppliers so your money supports the community that hosts you.

Paddock to Plate

The paddock to plate across Scotland is one we encourage by choosing to work with accommodations that source produce from local farms. This provides you with fresher meals and ensures your money directly assists local economies.

Visas

Visas are not required for citizens of Australia, Canada, USA and New Zealand for up to 90 days in a period of 180 days for all Schengen countries (see www.schengenvisainfo.com/schengen-visa-countries-list/ for countries part of the Schengen). Please ensure your passport is stamped on arrival in the Schengen area. For all other nationalities and for longer stays in countries covered by the Schengen Agreement (Australian New Zealand, Canadian and US passport holders), please contact the relevant embassy. Stays of longer than 90 days in the Schengen area require a long stay visa for the country you are spending most time in. However long stay visas are unlikely to be issued unless there is a valid reason (eg. studying in country). Unfortunately we cannot assist in obtaining visas for long stays due to individual country visa requirements.

Our industry leading risk management procedures have become a skill that we continue to refine. Our leaders in the field are highly trained and have safety as their number one priority. Expert leaders, risk assessments, quality inclusions and your financial security all come standard when you travel with us. Please refer to our Travel Advisory page for updates on recent events, travel warnings and advice. We strongly recommend that all clients take out travel insurance at the time of booking to cover against sickness, accident, loss of baggage, unexpected alterations to travel arrangements and travel disruption, emergency evacuation, cancellations, etc. Insurance information is enclosed with your pre-departure information. Please contact us if you would like to obtain a quote for your trip duration. We suggest that you consult your doctor, local government inoculation centre or a travel medical specialist in order to get the most current advice regarding vaccination requirements. Money and valuables should always be stored safely when travelling. Keep your passport with you at all times and do not leave it in your main luggage. You will need it to change money and check into hotels. Where safety deposit boxes are available, we recommend that you use them. Keep jewellery and valuables to a minimum.
