Group Size
Limited to 11 Travelers
A very important feature of our trips is the limited group size, as nature expeditions are best experienced with fewer travelers, to enhance the intimacy of the experience and reduce impact on the environment.
Specialized 4x4 Land Rovers and Land Cruisers
Our Private Leaders
Included
Accommodations, services of Nat Hab's professional Expedition Leader(s) and local guides, private charter cruises to Cromarty Firth and the Shiant Isles, all meals from dinner on Day 1 through breakfast on final day, most gratuities, airport transfers on Day 1 and final day, all activities and entrance fees, all taxes, permits and service fees.
Not Included
Travel to and from the start and end point of your trip, alcoholic beverages, some gratuities, passport and visa fees (if any), optional activities, items of a personal nature (phone calls, laundry and internet, etc.), airline baggage fees, airport and departure taxes (if any), required medical evacuation insurance, optional travel protection insurance.
Physical Requirements
Moderate
Our itinerary includes very full days. To enjoy all activities, guests must be able to comfortably walk 2 miles over uneven terrain that is often rough, rocky and and slippery, with significant exposure to weather, and sometimes near deep water. Multiple walks are included and are typically 1–2 miles long. The trip also includes a 2 to 3-hour canoeing excursion. While previous paddling experience is not required, guests should be comfortable paddling a two-person canoe in relatively gentle conditions, though if the wind whips up, it's possible we could see some waves. For guests who desire more physical activity, additional early-morning walks are sometimes offered by our guides. A few days include significant time in a vehicle, and drives are often over winding roads through hilly or mountainous terrain. If you get motion-sick on winding roads, you may wish to take preventive medication. Likewise, several boat trips are included that may expose guests to unpredictable sea conditions. While we generally spend time in more sheltered waters, travelers prone to seasickness should take this into consideration and come prepared with medication. While travelers are not required to participate in all activities, should you opt out of the day's scheduled activities, we cannot always guarantee that alternatives will be available.
Important Information About This Trip
Our Scotland journey is different from most, deliberately taking you away from more crowded areas and into wilder locales that unveil Scotland's rich natural history and cultural traditions. Accordingly, we stay in authentic, smaller-scale accommodations in less-traveled locations. While they are very comfortable, rooms are often a bit 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 amid 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
Since the areas you will travel to on this trip are remote and wild (that's why we go there!), we require medical evacuation insurance for this program. If you decline the medical evacuation insurance coverage offered by Natural Habitat Adventures, we require that you send us documentation of the independent coverage you have selected. We recommend that your chosen independent insurance plan includes at least $250,000 in medical evacuation coverage. Please note that we will add the cost of Natural Habitat Adventures' medical evacuation policy (currently $48 per person) to your tour invoice until you provide our office with proof of coverage including your insurance company's name, phone number and your individual policy number. Thank you for understanding that our policy exists exclusively in the interest of our guests' safety.

To protect your investment and to provide peace of mind while you travel, we also strongly recommend purchasing comprehensive travel insurance. Plans may cover everything from medical treatment to trip cancellations and delays and lost luggage. Please contact our office if you would like more information about the medical evacuation and comprehensive travel insurance policies we offer by calling 800-543-8917.
Getting There & Getting Home
Arrive in Inverness by 4 pm on Day 1 for a welcome dinner at 7 pm. You may depart Inverness anytime 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 your reservations, as our staff is intimately familiar with the special requirements of this program and can make the most efficient arrangements.
