Andy is an excellent guide. He’s super knowledgeable and shares the history of the surrounding area during the hikes. Highly recommended !

The 'Wilderness Glamping' trip starts with a 3 hour hike into the Cairgorm national park with pack ponies doing the heavy carrying of all the kit. When the perfect spot is reached the whole team work together to set up the 'basecamp'.

However, a tepee with a stove inside it does not make 'glamping' and this is where the glamping experience ends. At times the experience was more akin to a university club trip rather than the expensive posh camping we thought we'd bought. With things seeming a bit freeform and unfocussed the trip would benefit from more structure and closer accuracy to the published itinerary.
And although these premium tepees can apparently withstand high winds, rain and cold temperatures they are no match for the Scottish midges. After 2 nights my daughter looked like a smallpox victim.

Basecamp aside the hill walking was excellent and Andy is a first class mountain guide with a massive knowledge on flora, fauna and all things outdoor.
The 10 mile hike to the top of Sgor Goaith was not easy but Andy kept us entertained with his stories and the magnificent views from the top were the perfect reward.

In summary the 'Wild Glamping' product is a fantastic idea with enormous potential but it is clearly a fairly new product and as such has a fair number of rough edges which need to be smoothed and polished.

However, this refining should be simple to do as all the issues were minor and so the jump from 'student camping' to 'family glamping' is a short one e.g. the food was tasty but we could have done with more of it, mix the dried milk powder up in a bottle of water rather than spoon it directly into the tea, provide the pack lunches don't get the guests to make them themselves (they're each paying over £250 per day after all)...etc

In September, I went out of my comfort zone and embarked on a solo holiday with Scot Mountain holidays. I can honestly say that I was not disappointed and very grateful to have had this experience. After a long journey (9 hours on the train), it was a delight to reach Fraoch Lodge and enjoy warm hospitality from Andy and Rebecca. They had answered all of my questions and queries beforehand and this provided me with reassurance that I would be in safe hands. I also felt that they put in the necessary arrangements place to make the trip COVID-safe.

Even though I was the only person booked on this guided group holiday. Andy still ran the trip (with an amended itinerary). Nevertheless, I thoroughly enjoyed the guided walks and exploring the beauty of places that I never thought that I would visit such as Abernethy Woods, Glen Feshie and Loch An Eilein. Andy had an incredible knowledge of local environment, ecosystems and biodiversity and I learnt such a lot from him during the week about land cultivation, foraging and how the cairngorms had changed over time. Despite having visual impairment, Andy was conscientious about making the trip inclusive and offered me support when we were covering uneven ground or crossing small streams. One of the highlights for me was climbing the Cairngorm in the beautiful sunshine and seeing the magnificence of the scottish peaks. I am thankful for Andy for guiding me and helping me to reach the summit and have the experience climbing a mountain in Scotland, which is something I didn’t think, would be possible.

After a full day of walking, it was a joy to come back and enjoy Rebecca’s delicious herbal tea and delicious cakes at ‘Cake O Clock’. I absolutely loved the carefully thought-out meals in the evenings and it was nice to be able to sit socially distanced and enjoy meals together. I enjoyed the warming soups, delicious salads, and the inventive dishes using fresh produce grown in the garden. The desserts were some of the nicest that I had tasted and there were some real treats such as the the cardamom and caramel crème brulee and the blackberry and lavender cake. I was also introduced to sage tea, again, kindly made by Rebecca. The breakfasts and lunches were also delicious and I particularly enjoyed having the energy balls that helps keep me going throughout the walks. I think Rebecca really listened to what my dietary requirements and eating habits were and personalised things accordingly. She was also very helpful at giving me some advice about what to do on the ‘rest day’ due to her knowledge of the local area and I enjoyed a fascinating trip to the Highland Folk Museum.

Froach Lodge was very comfortable and homely with many inspiring photos and artefacts throughout their home showing a love of adventure, travelling and the cairngorms. It was lovely to sit and relax in a warm and comfortable environment in the evenings. It was also really lovely to meet Andy and Rebecca’s son Gregor who was great to chat to.

Overall, I had a really lovely holiday with Scot Mountain Holidays and I would recommend anyone who is thinking about a break in Scotland who wants to get off the beaten track to book a break with them.

Brilliant 5 days learning the skills required to stay safe when walking in tough mountain conditions. Andy takes great care in explaining the techniques required when walking in snow and ice. Correct use of crampons and Ice axe with plenty of time to practice. Accurate navigation with special attention to contour interpretation is covered as well. Andy’s knowledge of the local history and geology of the area along with some great explanations of the weather patterns we experienced made the course so interesting and enjoyable. Thoroughly recommended.

We are from Singapore!
We joined Andy on a 7 days 6 nights guided tour of the Scottish Highlands with 5 full days of hill-walking in Kinlochleven, Glencoe, the West Highland Way and Port Appin. While Scottish terrain is sometimes challenging for beginners to hiking, we greatly enjoyed the magnificent landscapes and varied terrain of the walks.

Back at the cottage (we were arranged to stay at a different cottage from Fraoch Lodge, and nearer to Glencoe instead), we enjoyed the delicious meals designed in advance by Rebecca and prepared by Andy. The perfectly steamed rice and delightful Chinese stir-fry with pancakes were very much appreciated! The home-made bread and cakes, Venison stew, soups, Shepherd's pie with a very savory minced beef reminiscent of a Chinese Mapo Tofu dish, fish dishes and breakfast toast with foraged mushrooms were amazing. We were impressed with how very delicious British-style home cooking is.

From rocky hills to valleys and open moorlands, we were able to experience a different kind of landscape each day. After 4 full days of serious hill-walking, an idyllic coastal walk along the picturesque and clear blue waters of Port Appin with sea gulls in the sky was the perfect way to end our hiking holiday!

A great 3 days walking on the highest peaks in the Cairgorms. Guiding by Andy, who has an enormous knowledge of geology weather, plant and animal life, was excellent in ocasionally challenging conditions. Hospitality at Fraoch Lodge was also excellent with lively mealtimes where all who stay there sit around the same table. Highly recommended.

Once again , Andy and Rebecca provided us with a wonderful experience -previously in the snow in Aviemore and now an unforgettable holiday in Harris. The accommodation, food and itinerary were excellent and the location and scenery spectacular -four seasons in one day but nevertheless amazing
I thoroughly recommend Scot Mountain Holidays who provide excellent facilities , small groups catered for, and innovative ideas Rebeccas' cooking and recipes are to die for and Andy provides expert knowledge in relation to flora, fauna and geology
We intend to join them on their next venture

Had a wonderful week in the Cairngorms this February.We did a few Munro's over the week.There was plenty of snow on the tops and it was icey with some strong winds, especially for the first couple of days.I was with two friends and together with the others it was a really good group.Andy our guide was great,and organised us and everything superbly.I found the walks challenging,and even if I'd been a bit fitter,it's a tough walking enviroment,but the rewards of some spectacular views and achieving the summits of some Munro's far outweighs the pain..!
Our base was Fraoch Lodge,at Boat of Garten.It is a warm homely and comfortable place, and lovely to get back to in the evenings, after a long day trekking.At the Lodge,Rebecca looked after us superbly,and her culinary skills are second to none.We had wonderful homemade food throughout the week. If you want a unique glimpse into the Cairngorms and want to bag a handful of Munro's,I couldn't recommend a better place.Thanks again Rebecca and Andy,for a great week.John

We booked the "Isle of Skye and Cairngorms" tour with Scot Mountain Holidays and it was superb. The guided walking tours were incredible. The general knowledge of Andy is incredible and he is a patient instructor. He led all of our hikes and was the general guide on the other portions of the holiday. i.e. the whisky tour, the otter hide, the ferry, etc. Rebecca provided the hospitality of Fraoch Lodge. Her cooking is fantastic and she provided the best meals of our whole Scottish tour. The lodge is warm and comfortable and homey. The whole experience was remarkable and we would not hesitate to book another tour with them.
