Coast to Coast Adventure Trail

COMING SOON - We are currently developing the fantastic new Coast to Coast Adventure Trail, which we hope to launch in the near future.

OVERVIEW

From the moment you begin this epic journey in the sleepy Perthshire town of Blairgowrie, the hills and countryside of the surrounding landscape truly envelope the senses, setting the scene for what we regard as a truly wonderful walk across Scotland to the remote west coast village of Inverie.

With seven nights of wild camping and bothy stays, combining a further eight nights of hotel accommodation, this 160 mile hike across some of Scotland’s most stunning and remote wilderness is the ideal walking holiday for the fit and experienced long distance hill walker. 

The route starts on the Cateran Trail, one of ‘Scotland’s Great Trails’, before leaving the route and heading across the hills to Glen Tilt, where the path shifts northwards with the great Cairngorm mountains on the horizon.  The trail heads west through Glen Feshie and Kingussie, before following the old military road of the Corrieyairack Pass to Fort Augustus on the south shore of Loch Ness.  After a well-earned two night break, the trail continues along another of the Great Scottish Trails, the Great Glen Way to Invergarry, where the route heads more directly west along Loch Garry and into the remote mountain region of Knoydart and the hidden bothy of Sourlies.  A final day’s hike over the mountains end at the west coast village of Inverie. 

There is no road access to Inverie, therefore the only way out is a short ferry journey to Mallaig, where a fabulous rail journey to Fort William awaits.  With a final, one or two night stay in Fort William, allowing for the opportunity to finish the holiday with a climb up the UK’s highest mountain, Ben Nevis; this wonderful adventure across Scotland is an awe inspiring journey which you will never forget.

ALTERNATIVE FINISH POINTS FROM FORT AUGUSTUS

Once the trail reaches Fort Augustus, it is possible to customise the route to an alternative finish point to either Fort William in the south or Inverness in the north.  This is achieved by joining the Great Glen Way, a low level trail which follows the Caledonian Canal.  Both locations provide good transport links back to Glasgow and Edinburgh.

If you would prefer to end the trail at Fort William or Inverness, via the Great Glen Way, please let us know on the Booking Enquiry Form.
