Winter tours: Winter walking in the Highlands on Scotland

Winter tours in Scotland

You don’t have to scale any actual mountains to enjoy a winter walking adventure with snow-cloaked peaks all around you. Wilderness Scotland runs trips in the Cairngorms national park among the lochs, glens and ancient Caledonian pine forest, reminiscent of many a Hollywood biopic, with stunning views of the Cairngorm Mountains.

If there’s snow on the ground, you’ll attempt to track animals from their footprints, and although this is pitched as an easy hiking trip, you’ll be walking for around five hours a day – so you’ll be glad to rest your weary limbs in front of a roaring fire each night.
