The Scottish Experience
Scotland's Premier Wild Camp Experience
Not a tour, an Experience! Our passion is Scotland and showing you the very best side of her. Our joy is in seeing the expression of delight light up your faces. Our job is to give you the very best experience possible and we are very good at our job. Oh and don't let the name put you off, we may show you lots of mountains in our travels but we won't force you to climb any.
We have an experience for all of you, whether it is the lightweight BackPacker which will take you to the remote areas of Scotland or the more substantial Skye, NC500 and Scotland Experiences which are a bit more luxurious than ordinary camping, we will cater for your needs and we promise you an amazing time visiting our homeland.
If you are planning to see Scotland then there is no better way to see her up close and personal.
Can't see an experience to suit your needs please speak to us, we can tailor a trip for you, your family or your group.
Hill Navigation and Safety
Navigate anywhere in the world, any conditions, day or night...on land.
That's right folks we will teach you the skills you need to get around even in poor conditions, using a map and a compass we will cut through the bull and teach you what you need to know.
But wait there's more, we will take you through some emergency situations designed to get you thinking and touch on kit you really should be carrying when you head out, don't worry though we will show you both lightweight and inexpensive solutions which may just make a big difference.
Remember when planning a day out to ask yourself this..."What if?"
What do you do when you can't tell the sky from the ground, when the horizon is no longer visible, when you don't know up from down?
This course is a touch more advanced and therefore you should already be confident with the use of a map and compass.
We will take you out of your comfort zone and show you just what it takes to come home safely.
Meticulous planning, understanding the contours, using bearings and features, safe routes etc.
