Highlights

  • Scotland is an intoxicating blend of stunning scenery and sophisticated cities. Its breathtaking landscapes harbor some of the largest areas of wilderness left in Western Europe, with spectacular sea stacks and rock formations, thundering waterfalls, and the jaw-dropping vistas of the northern Highlands. The rugged mountain terrain and convoluted coastline of the Highlands and islands offer unlimited opportunities for adventure.
  • The clash and conflict of Scotland’s colorful history can be seen in the many prehistoric remains. Mysterious standing stones, muscular towers, and richly symbolic Pictish stones make the distant past a constant presence. From desolate stone fortresses looming in the mist, to majestic castles towering over historic towns, to luxurious palaces, Scotland has a full range of castles that reflect its turbulent history and tense relations with its southern neighbor. Most castles have a story to tell of plots, intrigues, imprisonments, and treachery--some are even rumored to have ghosts stalking their halls.
  • Whisky plays a significant role in Scotland’s culture. Derived from the Gaelic uisge bagh, meaning ‘water of life,’ whisky has been distilled in Scotland for more than 500 years. More than 100 distilleries are still in operation, producing hundreds of varieties of single malt. Learning to distinguish the smoky, peaty whiskies of Islay from, the flowery, sherried malts of Speyside or delicate lowlands’ malts, has become a popular past time.
  • Sparsely populated with large areas of wilderness, Scotland is an important sanctuary for animals of every kind. Mid-summer is the high season for birdwatching, with opportunities to see the golden eagle, white tailed sea eagle, osprey, comcrake, capercaillie, crested tit, and Scottish crossbill. Red deer roam the uplands, pine martens and wildcats stalk the forests, and dolphins, whales, otters, and, orcas splash about in the northern waters.
  • The elaborate coastline and countless islands of Scotland’s western seaboard are widely recognized as some of the finest sea kayaking areas in the world. Paddling your own kayak allows you to explore remote islands, inlets, creeks, and beaches that are inaccessible on foot, and also provides an opportunity to get close to wildlife such as seals, otters, dolphins, and seabirds.
  • Our trip begins and ends in Edinburgh, the Scottish capital and a city of high culture and lofty ideals, art, literature, philosophy, and science. Seeing the Old Town silhouetted against a blue spring sky and the warm, welcoming glow from the window of a pub is sure to make you feel right at home.
  • We travel to the famous West Highlands where we enjoy the best short hike in Britain before sliding our kayaks into the surprisingly temperate and crystal clear waters of the Sound of Arisaig. This coastline of secluded bays, deep inlets and long white sandy beaches is a haven for wildlife including grey seals, otters, and even the harmless but very large basking shark. As we kayak through the countless tiny islands that punctuate the azure waters, we gaze out to the striking outline of the Isle of Skye.
  • Moving east, we travel to the Cairngorms National Park, which is celebrating its tenth anniversary this year. The largest national park in Scotland, the Cairngorms is known for its ancient forests, sweeping vistas, wildlife, and whisky! We enjoy some easy hikes to appreciate the scenery, but also take the time to visit some fascinating distilleries to both taste and learn  how the local tipple is created. The rich, evocative, and complex properties of the single malt whisky is said to be the true taste of Scotland.
  • The country has shaken off its once dismal culinary reputation as the land of deep-fried Mars Bars, and now boasts countless regional specialties, farmers markets, artisan cheese makers, smokeries, and microbreweries. Feast on fresh seafood mere hours after it was caught, beef and venison that was raised just a few miles away from our table, and vegetables that were grown in a local organic garden.
