Book a weekend in the West Highlands of Scotland with a difference.

From a base in Fort William you will be visiting one of the most beautiful places the West Highlands has to offer.Not only will you walk you will play your part in looking after them for your grandchildren to visit.

The trip will have a theme of conservation throughout and we will be looking at the impact we can have as tourists and how to limit it.

The walk will be of a moderate difficulty so is open to most people of reasonable fitness.

We will work a day with the Nevis Landscape Partnership learning new skills from path building to tree planting.

Really an opportunity to enjoy the Highlands, learn new skills, meet new people and help the places you love.

Group size will be small at maximum 8 people

You can also lessen your environmental impact by catching the train or bus to Fort William.

Accommodation for the trip can be found on my accommodation page. Something to suit every budget
