North Highland Way

The vision for the North Highland Way as a sustainable tourism route was born in 1992. There have been trials and tribulations for the only multi use route in Scotland and a new approach is now being mooted.  You can now book for our challenge for 2020 on line.  Download the booking form  here. and email to tinairving@letsgoexploring.co.uk.  Payment is on line.

You can read about some of the trials and tribulations here

Meanwhile, you can buy the book Creating the North Highland Way here


Also in 2020 we can offer a wonderful tour to the far north of Scotland.  Not quite the North Highland Way, but a spur off it.  A wonderful trip to the north of Scotland by train.

Sustainable tourism trip… by train!

Beginners Guide to the North Highland Way here

The route is planned to be the only multi use route in Scotland. For horses and cyclists as well. What we need now is for someone to ride the route on horseback and let us know glitches, as well as on a mountain bike! Anyone up for it?
