Avoid summer months, the midges are horrendous...
After having our 3 weeks in Canada cancelled by Covid, we were itching to get out in some epic nature. The north of Scotland is like another planet - so rugged and absolutely stunning!
This itinerary includes beautiful hikes in the Caingorms, climbing a mountain, historic battlefields and castles and a boatride on Loch Ness, plus some recommendations for where to eat and drink.

What tips would you give a friend?
Avoid the summer months, Scottish midges are legendary...!
Warm layers and waterproofs - Scottish weather is very changeable. And comfortable, broken in hiking boots.
