👣 Hiking Scottish Highlands

We are going on a new exciting four-day trip! 

Dig deep with us into Scotland’s treasures by going beyond the expected destinations. Yes, Glasgow will charm you with its transforming innovation and the globally recognised “People Make Glasgow”. And yes, Edinburgh will transport you to its medieval history by walking its winding, cobbled streets. However, you have not experienced the real Scotland until you have ventured into its untouched wilderness.

North to South, East to West, Scotland presents an unforgettable experience for those looking to appreciate the purity of its nature and outdoor splendor. Enjoy the loud silences of the glens and the undeniable power of the North-West coastline. Feel at one with your surroundings by enjoying what Scotland has to offer by scrambling its daunting cliffs and rock edges. These efforts are not without reward; behind every Scottish ben there is treasure whether it be a crystal clear waterfall with pools, an overlooking view of craggy mountaintops, or hidden caves and burns, each with their own story to tell.

Hike Descriptions:

Day 1 (Friday, 19.04):

The first day of our trip is dedicated to waterfalls. Steall Falls is a gem hidden in the valley of the River Nevis. We will walk along the rocky path of the gorge among the stunning scenery. We will be able to enjoy the fascinating views of the second largest waterfall in Scotland and go through the picturesque places that are accessible only to backpackers. The road will lead us to the hanging bridge and the river. The length of our route will be 12 km, we will overcome 300 meters of vertical ascent and make many amazing photos.

Day 2 (Saturday, 20.04):

The second day of our journey will be even more intense and active. We will spend it on the Isle of Skye, representing part of the Inner Hebrides. According to National Geographic, this is one of the most beautiful islands in the world. It is famous for its fantastic landscapes, mountains, valleys and waterfalls. We will climb to the top of the Cuillin Mountains and witness the pristine natural beauty. Our way back down will pass through the picturesque forest valley of Brittle, along the path that will lead us to Fairy Pools – where every evening fairies wash their wings, bring milk and white bread. 😀

Day 3 (Sunday, 21.04):

On the third day of our trip we will continue hiking around the Isle of Skye. This time we will head to its northern part. We will do a circular route through the Quiraing hills, which, in translation from Norse, means “round fold”. From the first minute, we will discover some of the most spectacular views in Scotland: hidden plateaus and cliff peaks, precipices and meadows, trails and ravines. The Quiraing circular route is a loop that will eventually return us to the starting point.

The second part of our hike is in the place called the Old Man of Storr. It is considered to be the pearl of the Isle of Skye. We will climb to the rock, the outlines of which in certain angles resemble the face of an old man, which is where its name derives from. Landscapes of the mountain range of Storr possess incomprehensible natural magnetism. This is probably what our planet looked like in prehistoric times. To fans of good cinema and Ridley Scott these landscapes are familiar from the movie “Prometheus”.

Day 4 (Monday, 22.04):

The fourth day of our journey will allow you to relax a bit. We will do an easy route to the mysterious valley of Glen Coe. We will hike to the three peaks of the North-Scottish Highlands, known as the “Three Sisters”. Among the mountain trails, majestic peaks, rivers, streams, waterfalls and lakes, a picturesque valley has been lost, which is sometimes called the “Lost Valley” or “Valley of Tears” (due to the sad history of the Macdonald family). Formed by the explosions of an ancient volcano over four hundred million years ago, it still impresses with its mysterious landscapes, breathtaking and disturbing imagination. Unsurprisingly, many movie shots have been taken here. We will visit one of the most memorable places in Scotland, learn the history and secrets of the “Lost Valley” and enjoy the fabulous views of nature.
