Wilderness Scotland has launched three new Wilderness Walking trips for 2018, each of them guided and all-inclusive.
Kinloch Lodge has reading rooms with open fires and cosy bedrooms with tartan throws. Guests will hike up Ben Hope, Scotland’s most-northerly Munro, take a RIB ride to islands with abandoned villages and towering sea stacks, and visit the lighthouse at Cape Wrath – Britain’s most north-westerly point.
The ‘Five UK National Parks’ two-country tour offers guests the chance to see the Cairngorms, Loch Lomond & The Trossachs, the Yorkshire Dales and Lake District National Parks. Highlights include boat rides on Lake Windermere and Loch Lomond, the ‘Fairy Lochan’ and Askrigg Falls, sampling Wensleydale cheese, visit a chocolate shop and factory in Orton and sample whisky and the famous Kendal Mint Cake.
The ‘High Points of the Cairngorms National Park’ programme see guests stay at a private lodge in Glen Feshie and climbing Sgorr Gaoith, Meall a Buachaille and Cairngorm itself. The area’s high tundra and pinewood forests are home to ptarmigan, capercaillie, red squirrels and osprey, and Britain’s only herd of reindeer.
