Description

Why not experience Scotland the way it was meant to be by visiting its largest and certainly its most wild national park.

Imagine walking for days with a pack on your back, through high sided valleys carved out by ancient glaciers, following tracks steeped in history and breathing in some of the freshest air imaginable. 

On the way you will take in stunning views that will literally stop you in your tracks. The days can be quite long here so you will need to be up for a challenge that is rewarded by that feeling only an expedition can give you.
