This without question was the best five days running experience of my life - superbly organised from start to finish with excellent guides and back up support. Trail running certainly at its finest and the routes and runs offered were simply outstanding showing Scotland's natural beauty at its finest. The 4th day in particular through Glen Affric will stay long... More

A wonderful time running through the highlands with my friends. Brilliant, friendly guides who show you the best of the Balmoral estate. Wonderful, healthy food all home made and clean, comfortable accommodation. What more could you ask for? A five star break. Thank you.
