9-16th May 2015

Glen Coe and the surrounding area is breathtaking, it is often considered one of the most spectacular and beautiful places in Scotland, and is a part of the designated National Scenic Area of Ben Nevis and Glen Coe. The Glen is famous for both it’s beauty and infamous for its history, namely the massacre of 1692 which occurred as part of the government’s efforts to suppress the Highlands and its troublesome residents.

What we'll get up to.

Ben Nevis

Well, obviously, for those who want to, there is the option to climb Ben Nevis. We can either go up the usual zig zags on the east side of the mountain, or, alternatively go round the back to take in the spectacular Carn Mor Dearg Arete. To be honest as there will be two Mountain Leaders on the trip we can do both and meet on the top (but the arete group will have to get going fairly early if this were to happen)

.

Hidden Valley

Glen Coe contains the Hidden valley. Until the mid 1700's this valley was used to hide The McDonalds clan's stolen cattle (the McDonalds were notorious cattle thieves, this is one of the reasons given for the bitter rivalry between them and the Campbell's that made the Massacre possible). We can take a walk up the valley, to the cattle grazing plateau attain the ridge at the head and walk back down to our accommodation.

 

walkoffBuachaille Etive Mor

Buachaille Etive Mor is a ridge containing 4 peaks. The most famous being Stob Dearg. Stob Dearg is the classically shaped mountain at the extreme east of the Glen Coe valley. The going will be very slow for the first 2 kilometres as we attain the ridge, after which the walking gets easier and the views get better. We'll take in the other 3 peaks, Stob na Dorie, Stob Corie Altruim and Stob Na Broig before making our way back down to the Lairig Gartain where our vehicles will be waiting to take us back to the cottage in time for tea and medals.

 

Other options

Other options on this holiday include a wide range of coastal and loch based walks as well as Glen Nevis and Ranoch moor to name a few easier possibilities. As far as is possible we will aim to include any walk that you might have your eye on.

Testimonials

This was our second Lupine holiday.  We really enjoyed the first one and knew there was always the chance another won’t meet our expectations, but there was no need to be concerned, it surpassed it!  Wonderful vegan food, home-baked and fresh.  Great walks, to suit our wishes and all transport provided.  It was an amazing week and we will certainly be looking out for your next one!  Thanks Lupine.

I had another fantastic week in Skye and came home feeling really relaxed. The scenery there is stunning and dramatic and the walks are enjoyable and challenging. The Lupine crew are really friendly, helpful and very knowledgeable. Food and accommodation both excellent.

Thank you Andy and Ben for a perfect holiday. I felt like I was with friends. The walking was my kind of walking – dramatic landscapes and challenging days, but not crazy! The house was cosy and comfortable and even though I am not a vegan, I enjoyed trying out delicious vegan food. I also enjoyed having a laugh and I’d definitely come again.

The week that we spent in the Lake District was probably the best holiday that we've ever had in England! ... We saw a lot more of the lakes than we would have done ourselves, and both Andy and Ben were great company - always full of anecdotes!

The holiday on the Isle of Skye was magical.

It was so relaxing to have the day planned for you plus having the choice of how challenged you wanted to be each day.

The food was lovely and plentiful and it was altogether a memorable holiday.

Well, they may just be the internet’s best kept holiday secret.

What makes them different is their bespoke approach and attention to detail. By keeping the group small and the guest-to-leader ratio low, the trips feel personal in a way I think few bigger companies could match.

...the leaders were always careful to respond to the wishes of each guest - which meant that we could enjoy all the social benefits of a group holiday, but still feel like individuals. No mean feat, managing all that for a group of disparate strangers!
