Overview

A glorious Scottish adventure

A classic discovery of Scotland’s most spectacular landscapes and rich history with a wild twist.

Begin with five nights enveloped by the great green glens of Alladale Wilderness Reserve. Once a traditional hunting estate, it is now one of Scotland’s most exciting rewilding projects pioneering Highland conservation. A ranger will guide you around this beautiful wilderness on hikes, fishing trips and drives, returning to a fire-warmed Victorian lodge for hearty dinners and whisky.

Then explore the mighty Cairngorms mountains from the grand Fife Arms, visiting highlights such as Balmoral Castle, Loch Ness and a royal distillery before a final two nights in the ever-handsome city of Edinburgh.

Rewilding the Highlands

Remote and rugged, these 9,300 beautiful hectares are at the forefront of Scotland’s rewilding movement, restoring a former hunting estate to its natural grandeur. The wild Highlands as they once were.
