Physical Requirements
Moderate
While this adventure does not require a high degree of physical fitness, days are very long and on occasion, somewhat strenuous conditions may be involved. Most days include significant time in a vehicle, and drives are often over winding roads through hilly or mountainous terrain. To enjoy all activities, guests should be able to comfortably walk up to one mile over uneven, often slippery, terrain. A number of walks are included throughout the itinerary, typically about a mile in length, and many take place on rough, rocky ground with significant exposure to the weather, and sometimes near deep water. The full-day trip to St. Kilda involves an 8-hour, 60-mile round-trip boat ride over seas that are often rough. Travelers prone to seasickness should take this into consideration and come prepared with medication. It is possible to remain at our hotel on the Isle of Harris if a guest does not wish to participate in the St. Kilda excursion, though for those who go, it's generally the high point of the entire trip. For guests who desire more physical activity, additional early-morning walks are sometimes offered by our guides. 
Important Information About This Trip
Our Scotland journey is different from the rest, deliberately taking you away from more crowded areas and into the traditional, wilder locales that unveil Scotland's rich natural and cultural history. Accordingly, we stay in authentic, smaller-scale accommodations in less-traveled locations. While they are very comfortable, rooms are often slightly less spacious than those typically found in North America. But whatever we may forsake in space, we more than make up for in setting, surrounded by nature amidst Scotland’s most awe-inspiring sights. Please be prepared to spend time outdoors in unpredictable weather, which may include heavy rain and wind — or perfect sunshine.
Mandatory Insurance
Getting There & Getting Home
Arrive in Edinburgh by 6pm on Day 1 for a welcome dinner. For those travelers who wish to participate in the optional, private guided tour of the famous Edinburgh Castle in 2014, plan to arrive in Edinburgh no later than 3:30pm on Day 1. You may depart Edinburgh anytime after 6pm on the final day. We are prepared to handle all your round-trip travel arrangements. We can serve you best if Natural Habitat Adventures’ Travel Desk makes these reservations for you, as they are intimately familiar with the special requirements of this program and can arrange the most efficient and cost effective travel for you.
