Walking in the Scottish Highlands Short Break

This 5-day short break in the Scottish Highlands immerses you in its impressive landscapes and you can enjoy relaxing walks combined with intriguing history and culture. Visit the treasure-filled rooms of Blair Castle and see Soldier's Leap, a famous spot from the 1689 Battle of Killicrankie. Why not try a whisky tasting at the Blair Atholl Distillery and give Scotland's infamous haggis at one of the many great traditional restaurants a go? The town of Pitlochry and the village of Blair Atholl are full of character and where you will spend your overnights in superior accommodations. Walk in the rolling hills of Perthshire through towering forests, alongside rushing rivers and through peaceful glens.
