Our Guiding Service

What do you want to do? We can put together a day/several days/
a long-term programme specifically tailored to what you would like to learn or achieve. However we also offer...

Guided Ascents,
Multi-day trips,

• Guided walks of all levels
• Easy local walks around the village
• Low-level walking through the glens
• Hill walking
• Navigation
• Guided Ascents of Munros
• Multi-day trips

Our guided walks are tailor made to suit you, ranging from the very easy to the more difficult. We can take you through a glen, up a munro, or even more locally around the village of Braemar, where there are some wonderful low-level walks with amazing views. There really is a walk here to suit every abililty.
Interested in Scottish history? Take a local history walk with an experienced Tour Guide - visit Braemar's two castles and see where the Jacobites raised the Standard in support of Bonnie Prince Charlie in 1715. Or take a local walk without the history!
Perhaps you are new to hill walking and want to learn the basic skills of map reading and navigation? We can show you how to do it.
Is there a particular hill that you would like to climb, but don't have the confidence to do it on your own? We can guide you up it - and have fun on the way!
No matter what your ability, we can find a walk to suit you - whether it be short or long, flat or steep. And on any of the walks in this area you are likely to see lots of wildlife - red deer, red grouse, golden eagles and even sea eagles if you are very lucky. So be sure to bring your binoculars.


Downhill Skiing,
Ski Touring

This is a wonderful area for winter sports. When there is snow in the glens this is the perfect location for all forms of skiing - cross-country, ski-touring and downhill skiing.

There is cross-country skiing in and around the village and the local glens, wonderful downhill skiing is available a few miles up the road at Glenshee and there is easily accessible fantastic ski-touring on the local hills.

Please let us know if you would like to try any of the above and we can arrange it.

Guided Winter Walking is of course available too.
