Our guided walks have been carefully selected to highlight some of Harris' best scenery. The walks will be led by the North Harris Trust Ranger or a guide from the Scaladale Centre. The terrain will be very varied from scree slopes to peat bogs. The mountain routes might include exposed ridge lines and steep climbs/ descents.
Please be honest about your fitness and ability before attempting these routes. Most of these walks will not be on surfaced paths therefore walking boots and waterproofs are essential. We reserve the right to turn individuals away who do not have the correct equipment. Well behaved dogs are welcome on these walks.
