This was my first experience with a running holiday. Neil and his team help make this adventure fun and everything runs very smoothly. I can think of nothing negative at all. Wonderful people, beautiful and rugged scenery, a challenge for the body and the mind.

I've done two trips with Running the Highlands (Across in 2011 and Up in 2017). Neil puts on a fantastic tour!!! Utterly the best! Plan to do the 3 Dee Glen next. It's worth the flights from Canada. Highly recommend!
