    this bill was overlooked by accident. No reminders were received but have checked through accounts and have found originals. However, your phone is currently offline (9pm 28/4/18) but have emailed new card details today after receiving your phone call to the office this afternoon.

Questions & Answers

Here we have collected and answered the most frequently asked questions.

  • Do you have vegetarian meal options?

    No problem at all. Please notify us about any specific dietary requirements by the time of booking!

  • Do I have to carry my own bags each day?

    No - all you need to carry during the day is a small day sack for hiking with. Your main luggage will be transported by us during any accommodation transfers.

  • How fit or experienced must I be to enjoy the tour?

    We offer walking for all abilities and ages. A reasonable level of fitness is suggested for most of our tours, however previous hiking experience is not essential for many of our trips and we will provide enough guides to cater for different paces and levels of fitness. Our aim is to let you walk at a pace you will enjoy - whether that be an easy stroll or a full-on challenging ascent of our highest mountains. Please just call us if unsure.

  • Where do your tours depart from?

    All our tours depart from Edinburgh city centre from the corner of Waverley Bridge and Market Street. This is just outside Waverley Train Station, near the Edinburgh Dungeons and immediately outside the Lothian Travel shop. Other pick-up points en-route can also be arranged if needed.

  • Do we need insurance for the trip duration?

    We strongly recommend that you take out insurance for the duration of your trip to cover cancellation, injury, death, loss or damage to personal belongings and liability to third parties. All overseas visitors must have insurance to cover accident and repatriation. Our recommended Travel Insurance provider is WorldNomads.com.

  • How big are your groups?

    Our walking tours and holidays are run in small groups of around 5-8 people, occasionally as many as 10. For groups of any more than 6 or 7 people we normally have a second guide on the trip. This enables us to keep the walking groups small, offer flexibility in the walks we do and for us to be able to take care of everyone in the group.
