Horse Riding Weekends* don’t get more magical than this! Over two days you’ll have the chance to ride through heather, forest and in the stunning Scottish Highlands. Iain, your guide, was born and raised in the Highlands of Scotland and knows everything there is to know about the nature and history of the area – giving you a real appreciation of your surroundings.

During your Horse Riding Weekend* you’ll ride over mountains, through valleys and past Scottish Lochs. In the evenings, you’ll fish for your food, sleep in a tent and cook on an open fire. Then lie back and look up at more stars than you have ever seen before! This is the wildest and most magical escape we have. You’re going to love it.

*This trip can be completed on weekdays too and is perfect for novice and expert riders (the route is chosen based on ability).

Horse Riding Weekend Itinerary

Day 1Meet your guide, horses and head off into the Wilderness

As you arrive in Glen Affric you’ll be amazing by the beautiful wilderness that confronts you. The valley feels like it’s completely cut off from the modern world.

You’ll meet with your guide Iain before being introduced to your horses. These are sturdy and sure footed – used to being left out throughout the Scottish winters and perfect for the coming 2 days. Once you’ve packed your belongings onto the pack horse you’ll be saying goodbye to civilisation and heading off on your own mini-expeditions.

Throughout the next 2 days you’ll be riding through a range of amazing scenery including Glens (valleys) native woodland, moors, heather and over hills (dependant on your preferences and the weather conditions). Along the route there will be plenty of time to stop and marvel at your surroundings, snack, relax and appreciate the vast natural vistas. In the evening you will be in charge of fishing for your dinner in a Highland Loch or river which will be cooked on an open fire.

Day 2Swimming, beautiful scenery and serene silence

Your second day will be similar to your first with more breathtaking scenery and landscapes. Make sure to ask Iain about the history and nature of this area of Scotland – he has an encyclopaedic knowledge of the hills and glens surrounding his family croft.

As you near the end of your escape you’ll marvel at how long the last two days seemed, full to the brim of unforgettable experiences.
