Northwest Highlands: Private Tour with Hike

1. Northwest Highlands: Private Tour with Hike

If you like wide-open spaces, lonely glens to hike up, and dramatic mountian scenery, this tour has it all. After getting picked up, your guide will explain the course of the day and make any adjustments that you may require. Leaving Inverness and heading northwest over the Black Isle, you will be entertained with stories and legends of the area before stopping off at the beautiful, old Silver Bridge. Follow the Black Water river to the huge Aultguish Dam and onto Wester Ross. At Corrieshalloch Gorge, you’ll take a 30-minute walk and learn about the traces left from the ice age that formed the landscape. Take in the breathtaking views of this spectacular ravine. The fishing village Ullapool is the next stop, where you can take time to wander the streets and have a light refreshment. Then you’ll venture into one of the last wildernesses in Europe. Stop and take in the peculiar yet stunning Stac Pollaidh, Suilven, and An Tealach mountains. After traveling through some of the oldest mountains in the world, you’ll stop at the tiny fishing village of Lochinver for lunch. Depending on the weather, your lunch will be served in the restaurant or on a sandy beach under the shadow of Ardvreck Castle before you head into a lonely glen for your main 2-hour hike of the day: the Bone Caves of Inchnadamph. From here continue on through Sutherland and onto the east coast of Ross and Cromarty where the landscape changes again to flatter and greener farmland. Journey through the beautiful Strath Okyel and onto the Kyle of Sutherland, where a spectacular view awaits. From there you’ll return to Inverness, taking in the old navy port of Invergordon and a curious monument on top of Fyrish Hill.

Jamie was a spectacular guide for our private tour of northern Scotland! Being of Scottish heritage, I especially enjoyed to stories of the Burns festival and the stories of camaraderie of Scots sporting events. Our tour was truly unique with a spectacular hike to the bone caves during the afternoon. It wouldn’t have been complete without getting rained on. We were lucky to have sun also! Jamie was well informed and knew some great history and stories. He left a lot up to us, and I chose this tour because it seemed like it would very different from the popular ones, and off the beaten path. Both were true and just what we wanted because we love the outdoors, especially being able to be isolated; safely of course! There is no tour like this one, because you get to go just with your own group, in our case just as a couple, and to places that are not on the usual tours! Cheers! Victor Forsyth

We had an absolutely fantastic time on this tour. It was interesting and personable and something that I'll remember for the rest of my life. I would definitely recommend, and would be delighted to work with Jamie again, should we ever return.

Great tour, very well organized. As Jamie, our guide said, he doesn't show things, he shares. Today we saw and felt more of Scotland than any other tour.
