Explore parts of Skye and Lochalsh that are less well known in the company of someone who can tell you the stories, share the names of things and identify the views.
Walks start at 10am and last about five hours, depending on the weather and how fast people walk. Nic sets a gentle pace but walks can be several miles, so bring lunch and a drink.
Boots are essential and, unless the weather is set to be fair, full waterproofs are advised. Walk party size is limited to 10.

Charges are £20 per adult, £10 for a child (over 8).
