Let a walking guide lead the way

For some people the attraction of walking is the freedom to take off on one's own for a self-led adventure. For others, it's guided walks that hold the greatest appeal.

Guided walking has become a fast-growing activity and for many people it offers the chance to walk on trails or to places that might have previously seemed impossible because of experience or ability. Guided walks allow you to concentrate on the walking, the views and the chat without having to worry so much about navigation and route.

Guided walking also offers a number of other benefits, including the expertise and knowledge of a local guide when it comes to the area's flora, fauna and history. Many walkers, especially singles, also like the social side and meeting like-minded people.

But with so many guided walks to choose from where will you head for your next holiday? A new walk that we're sure will become popular is our specially created six-day East Highland Trek.

The six-day guided walking break starts on the Cateran Trail (in Angus and East Perthshire) and finishing in Aviemore. The trek head over high Scottish mountains, follows old rights of way and drovers roads and takes in some of the most stunning scenery of the Angus Glens and the Cairngorms National Park amid the Eastern Highlands of Scotland.

History lovers will also be delighted by the walk and there is a wealth of geological and wildlife interest, too.

The guided walk is 51 miles in total and is aimed at serious walkers. Accommodation is organised along the route and is in hand-picked three-star hotels and B&Bs or hostels according to your price choice.

Why not discover somewhere new on your next walking holiday?
