Scotland

“The birthplace of valor, the country of worth; Wherever I wander, wherever I rove, The hills of the Highlands forever I love.”

– Robert Burns – 1789

Discover the unique landscapes, culture and treasures of Scotland with Great Earth Expeditions. We travel Scotland’s back roads, country paths and rugged trails to explore the myriad glens, lochs, mountains and villages of the Scottish Highlands and islands. From peaceful forest trails to mountain tracks with stunning towering backdrops, a tour of the Highlands is a landscape that lends itself to active, yet family-friendly travel.

Our adventure tours in Scotland focus primarily on the enchanting Scottish Highlands and Western Isles, which stretch from the north to the west of the country and showcase some of the most rugged and dramatic scenery in all of Britain. Visits to whisky distilleries or world-class championship golf courses along the way can easily be arranged.

Experience the wild landscape of the south western Scottish Highlands on the West Highland Way, Scotland’s world famous 148-km trail linking the lowlands with the highlands. During the week-long walk from Greater Glasgow, along Loch Lomond, Glen Coe and Rannoch Moor, ending at Fort William, at the foot of Ben Nevis, Britain’s highest peak, at 1344 m. The West Highland Way captures the true essence of Scotland; through great glens and a vast pristine wilderness area.

About Scotland

Famous for being the birthplace of golf, Scotland is equally as famous for it’s wild landscapes from the highlands to the isles which line its rugged and weathered coastline. The country provides the traveler with the opportunity to explore remarkable historic places that date back to ancient times and bustling cities such as the capital of Edinburgh where you can roam the medieval Old Town or the Georgian New Town. Scotland has changed and evolved throughout the centuries, but one thing that hasn’t changed is its love for Whisky. No trip to Scotland is complete until you indulge in a “wee dram” with the locals which refer to this fine drink as the “water of life.” With its ancient castles, dramatic Highland vistas and remarkably diverse terrain, Scotland is made for adventure travel
