Explore the Cairngorms on Foot

Take a day out of your tour round the Highlands to explore deep into the Cairngorms National Park under the expert guidance of Andy Bateman, your qualified local hiking guide of 20 years experience in the Highlands of Scotland.

Create lasting memories on a hiking day out with Andy Bateman. You'll be out in the back country of the Cairngorms National Park, away from the crowds.Your walking companions will be reindeer, ptarmigan, snow bunting or mountain hare, but only if you're the lucky ones.

You'll experience views only the lucky few get to see when they get away from the road and properly explore the countryside they otherwise take for granted as they whizz through, but you get to hear all about the local stories, the way everything links together and the people which make the background to the scenery. It's nature which provides the full impact of what you are feasting your eyes on. Learn all about the forces which have created what you are experiencing. Enjoy a little slice of nature - up close and personal.
