Welcome to Ballintean Mountain Lodge in the heart of Scotland’s Cairngorm National Park. It’s time to kick off your shoes, switch off from the stresses of everyday life and meet your fellow travellers. After a welcome drink on arrival we'll take a walk along the River Feshie and get the lay of the land before getting to know each other better over an included 3 course dinner.
The dawning of a new day full of fresh opportunity! Today, it’s time to explore. We'll visit epic mountains, chase (secret) cascading waterfalls and enjoy the company of wild reindeer high in the hills – be prepared for some serious cuteness. After an included lunch, you'll also have the chance to fully submerge yourself in Scottish culture, literally, with wild swimming in Loch Morlich followed by afternoon tea. Tonight we'll join together for an included 3 course dinner, Scottish-style.
Today we crank up the adventure with a thrilling mountain bike ride across the Cairngorm Mountains, before a stop for lunch at the lodge, then an adrenaline-filled zip line through the ancient Caledonian Forest. This afternoon we'll have time for lawn games overlooking the hills before our included 3 course dinner.
We'll begin the day with a hike to a jaw-dropping viewpoint and perfect Instagram spot, with a chance to meet and feed the resident Highland cows. After breakfast our journey continues south with a brief stop to take in a slice of Scottish history, then west alongside Loch Laggan towards Glenfinnan. This place has a special treat for Harry Potter fans as we visit the spectacular viaduct made famous in the Chamber of Secrets film. After an included lunch and some free time this afternoon, we conclude today's day trip in a beautiful remote spot, with our own private chef serving fresh stone-baked pizzas as twilight descends. We'll settle in around a cosy campfire near the river and swap Scottish tales before returning to the lodge to sleep.
After our included breakfast this morning, it's time to say goodbye to our new friends and look forward to new adventures! Thank you, Scotland, it's been truly unforgettable.
