Hiking in the magnificent Scottish Highlands is an experience like no other!

Scotland, particularly its iconic Highlands region, is celebrated worldwide for its awe-inspiring scenery, characterized by majestic mountains, serene lochs, and sweeping vistas. This enchanting land beckons outdoor enthusiasts with an abundance of hiking opportunities, from the untamed landscapes of the Isle of Skye, featuring dramatic cliffs and castles, to the enigmatic depths of Loch Ness in search of the legendary Nessie and more!


This journey involves hikes on hilly, uneven surfaces, a relatively fast-paced itinerary with a good deal of coach travel and visits to some remote parts of Scotland. Hiking distances, elevation change, and times listed are ESTIMATED and refer to the total time spent hiking throughout a full day. Travellers must be in excellent physical condition and able to maintain the group pace. Depending on weather and location conditions, daily activities may have to be altered or adjusted. Accommodations will be in comfortable traditional Scottish hotels with atmosphere and character. Trail conditions may vary and are SUBJECT TO CHANGE. Porters may not be available at all hotels and members should be prepared to move their own luggage when required.

What are Craig Journeys all about?

Our goal is to offer meaningful authentic experiences that inspire a deeper understanding of the world we inhabit. Through immersive sightseeing and engaging interactions with local people and cultural sites, we strive to foster a greater appreciation of our global community.

We go to great lengths to ensure the physical comfort of our members, providing excellent accommodations, delicious cuisine, comfortable transportation, and more. At the same time, we encourage them to embrace and engage with local customs.

Why should I book with Craig Travel?

All of our tours are carefully planned to provide a comfortable pace, quality accommodations, in-depth sightseeing, and fully inclusive pricing. We encourage you to compare our offerings with other tours available. Check to see exactly what is included and what extras you may be required to pay.

What do you mean by 'Fully Inclusive' pricing?

Almost all Craig Tours and Cruises include all prepaid costs, encompassing airfare and related taxes, hotel accommodations and/or cruise expenses with taxes and service fees, most meals as described for each departure, sightseeing with entrance fees, gratuities for included services (such as guides, drivers, hotel staff, porters), and even airport transfers. For those residing in southern Ontario, we provide transfers between your home and the airport in most areas, while other passengers receive a special credit or an overnight stay at an airport hotel, depending on the circumstances.

Not included in the published prices are personal services and items such as laundry, telephone calls, room service, and beverages with meals or otherwise (according to local customs; for example, beverages like water, tea, and coffee are typically not included in Europe except during breakfast). Shore excursions on ocean cruises are not included unless specified.

While taxes and fees are included in our prices, they always remain subject to change. Consequently, we may need to collect supplements to cover tax and fee increases that cannot be absorbed.
