Additional Information

Fàilte to gorgeous, WILD, women-only Scotland! Experience vast landscapes, rocky coastlines, and secluded mountains with ancient wind in your hair. Our 8-day adventure to the North West Highlands is the perfect blend of culture, food, challenging hikes, historic castles, and Mum Nature.

Enjoy a scenic train ride from Edinburgh through Cairngorms National Park to Inverness before taking our private Explorer Chick transport deep into the North West Highlands. Gasp as you roll past rugged landscapes, sparsely populated villages, imposing peaks that erupt from the ground, and thousands of lochs in every direction. BRING A POPSOCKET FOR YOUR PHONE PHOTO-THON.

You’ll embark on daily hikes to explore everything this secluded paradise has to offer. Tick off your first Munro at 3,218 feet with a bird’s eye view of the Torridon Mountains below. Scramble up remote peaks of the Assynt region passing numerous lochs to gain the summit. Savor delicious pies picnicking on rugged coastline cliffs while sipping on whiskey and gin from a local distillery. 

Sheep and cows will roam around you as you meander through remote villages and 16th-century castle ruins wondering if you have become Merida from Brave. Head out on the town in search of local pubs and live music. All meals are sourced locally following Scottish tradition. 

Each night, we’ll return to cozy, authentic Scottish Inns with the best saved for last: feasting and sleeping in a 15th-century castle luxury hotel LIKE THE EXPLORER CHICK QUEENS WE ARE.

“My Explorer Chick adventure was absolutely awesome! The itinerary was laid out in detail and included parts of Scotland I didn't even know existed. The trip allowed me to see Scotland in a way I would never have been able to on my own. They brought in a local guide who was also wonderful.  It was an all-around spectacular experience that forced me to push my boundaries and allowed me to form some amazing friendships. I came home and immediately started looking for my next Explorer Chick adventure!” – Explorer Chick Courtney
