There’s no better way to see the lovely Scottish countryside than by getting out of the car and walking.
Let Andavo Travel tell you about a variety of British walking tours every week in March through October throughout Scotland, graded for different levels of activity. There are two types: escorted (guided) and self-led. All holidays have been designed by walkers, for walkers. Our group walking tours of Scotland are guided by experienced leaders.
Choose from two glorious locations in Scotland: the Western Highlands or Isle of Arran.
We have carefully selected a mixture of comfortable 3/4/5 star country house/hotel accommodations perfect for those which are more comfortable with having a private bath. Our daily social program includes an informal house party atmosphere, great for making new friends. You spend your whole stay in one property. The settings are varied, illustrating the surrounding beauty and diversity of the countryside.
Most one week tours offer walks on 5 days during the week, departing at 9:30AM and spending about 5-7 hours walking, including stops. Wednesday is a free day, allowing you to do what you want, or to rest. The walks are categorized from short to long or from low to high level terrain, so there is something to suit every taste on each departure. The length of each days’ walks depends on the level chosen, but can range from 2-12 miles or more. Our most popular British guided walking holidays offer you a choice of up to three lengths of walks each day, we call them Classic Walking Holidays. An easier walk and harder walk and one in between, perfect for those holidaying together with different walking tastes. You can walk with one party level one day, and switch to another the next – it’s entirely up to you. You don’t have to stick to the same level throughout the week. You need not walk every day, if you don’t want to.
We have walking tours in all areas of Britain. You can combine a week in Scotland with a week in England’s Lake District, the Cotswolds, or just take a week’s walk in Wales. Tours begin and end on Saturdays, allowing for easy combination of tours.
