    Try your hand at new skills under Andy's expert guidance in the Cairngorms National Park.


    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.

    All the meals and "cake o'clock" are designed around the various preferences of the group, making the most of Scotland's natural larder. 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.

    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)
