The Isle of Arran is often described as Scotland in miniature due to its varied landscape which reflects the Scottish mainland. The island has everything from dramatic mountains to pretty seaside villages, wild moorland to lush farmland and some stunning seascapes too. The wildlife is spectacular and it is possible to see the ‘Big 5’ (golden eagles, otters, seals, red squirrels and red deer). The island is quite large, about 10 miles by 20 miles, and we use the good bus service to do walks in different parts of the island, offering a real taste of Arran and some wonderful journeys along the coast and inland.
There are some big mountains in the Lake District and at times it may feel as if you just can’t manage them.

Clearly a good level of fitness is still required to climb these mountains but as long as you have the stamina to keep going you ‘ll get there. So if you fancy climbing some of the Lake District’s most famous mountains then this is the holiday for you.

The Best of Hadrian’s Wall: Newtown to Chollerford
This guided walking holiday offers the best of Hadrian’s Wall as a linear walk from west to east. It begins where the wall becomes increasingly more visible and takes in the best preserved highlights of the wall along the way. We walk the main section of the wall that contains such gems as the forts at Birdoswald, Housesteads and Chesters. We also walk past Sycamore Gap where Robin Hood’s tree stands proud in a dip in the landscape. It is thought to be one of the most photographed trees in the UK.
