Scot Mountain Holidays

Hiking Tour

15 Deshar Road, Fraoch Lodge, Boat Of Garten, Inverness-shire, PH24 3BN

    We are a tour operator specialising in providing adventures for families and walking holidays for all. We use our home as our base - taking our home with us when we go mobile across the Highlands. Our trips have guaranteed departures.

    Scot Mountain Holidays specialises in fully inclusive adventure tours, based around walking and MTB exploration with cultural visits such as Loch Ness and Culloden for all including families. We provide all elements of our package in-house and integrate our family completely in the package we provide - even our 5 year old son Gregor has some role to play. Your guide is Andy, he is a director of the company and lead guide. He designs all the routes for the trips and also "chauffeurs" you to the start of the walks. I provide all the meals and "cake o'clock" around the various preferences of the group. All the food is freshly prepared and a lot of the produce is provided from our garden. At the end of the day we all share the evening meal together (except for Gregor, who is in bed by then) which usually makes for a convivial atmosphere.

    We provide for you throughout in a warm and friendly atmosphere.

    "The perfect mixture of relaxation and hard work on the hills, capped off by the best food one will taste. Andy's leadership captures all of the F's; fun, friendly, firm and far too good to miss!" (John Hansford, Somerset)

    Birds/ Land Animals will be seen on your various types of holidays.

    Fully inclusive of Accommodation, Full Board, Guiding/ instruction and transport/ transfers. Inverness Airport and Aviemore Station.
