Enjoy the Scottish Highlands this Summer or Fall
Home to some of the continent’s most stunning scenery, coupled with one of Europe’s least densely populated countries, Scotland perfectly fits the bill for post-pandemic travel. Whatever sport you choose, we can arrange the activity, lodging, guides, and meals with a tour operator we love to use in the UK, Celebrated. Hikers and mountain bikers can head to the ancient pine forest of Cairngorms National Park, the largest national park in the UK. Or canoe on the River Spey to the famous Speyside whisky distilleries. Sea kayakers can paddle around Applecross and the spectacular Isle of Skye, where for one summer, my brother worked as a bellhop for a hotel. The Brits didn’t tip so well back then, but he still loved being there. Sailors head to the Inner Hebrides for two days of sailing around Mull, Islay and Jura (where George Orwell wrote many of his books), finishing at Isle of Eriska and their Relais & Chateau estate. Celebrated has vetted many private estates in Scotland, from medieval castles to island cottages. So if you prefer a private home to a resort, Scotland is a great option. Let ActiveTravels know your dates and we’ll package together a memorable trip!
