Adventures By Boot

The Highlands boasts world class walking and mountaineering all year round. If you want to explore its hidden gems with the peace of mind of being accompanied by a qualified Mountain Leader, then let us make your dreams of the world above the clouds a reality.

Torridon

The Torridon Mountains offer spectacular scenery, the chance to spot some golden eagles and to bag a Munro or three.

The unique draw of this part of the north-west Highlands is the contrasting landscapes sat side by side: the mighty Atlantic ocean creeps in past the Hebridean isles with their turquoise waters, and unspoiled expanses of white sandy beach, interrupted unceremoniously as it hits land, climbing straight from the ragged coastline to almost impossibly steep craggy buttresses and ancient geology to reach the spoke like ridge systems forming the spine of the country.

Skye

The Isle of Skye is a stone’s throw from our base in Applecross. The Black Cuillin mountains, which can be seen virtually from our doorstep, can only be described as epic. This environment should never be underestimated and all but the most experienced mountaineer should invest in the support of a suitably qualified guide for this adventure.

Fortunately, we can provide exactly that. Talk to us about your objectives, or we can recommend some unforgettable days out on this unrivaled ridge-line. Once described as the ultimate test for any budding mountaineer, why not tackle the 'innacessible pinnacle', thread the needle or brave 'the bad step' before relaxing with a more than deserved beverage surveying your day's conquest from the Applecross Inn?

For a flavour of what you can expect from the Cuillin - remember the jaw-dropping film by Danny Macaskill? Take a look at the video.

Knoydart

Further afield, there are the mountains of the Knoydart peninsula, another of Scotland's less well known areas of great rugged majesty.

If exploring the peninsula that can only be reached in two days by foot or by boat ignites your imagination, this is the place for you. There are innumerable routes connecting some of the most untouched of the Scottish mountains.

Expect the peace to be disturbed only by the unwitting wildlife as fellow walkers are few and far between in one of the most remote parts of the country. We would love to share it with you - as long as you don't tell too many of your friends about it!

The Cairngorms

The Cairngorms, a mecca for winter mountaineering affords a perfect base for day and multi-day walks in both summer and winter.

With the ski centre car park giving walkers the advantage of starting from a good height, getting higher and going further really is possible. Leaving the bustle of the ski hub behind, it won't be long until you feel as though you're miles from anywhere, with only the sound of grouse chattering and the rustle of heather as you explore these ancient plateaus with the carved gullies and steep corries. With so much choice, you really can go anywhere in the Highlands to enjoy the mountains, in summer, and in winter. No matter what your experience, we can provide you with some guidance.

These are just a few suggestions, but we would love to discuss your individual objectives and requirements.
