About the tour

Join me on a quest as we seek out truth from legend on this stunning tour in the upper reaches of Glen Coe, known as the "Glen of Weeping". Immersed in lichen-clad woodland, we will explore pagan rituals and follow the footsteps of the Fiery Cross at Signal Rock before descending down to the mighty River Coe as it crashes towards the sea! Along the way we will catch spectacular views of towering mountains, hear beautiful bird song and learn about the geology that created this mountain haven, and the people who have shaped and changed it to what we see, hear and feel today.


Meet your local guide

Craig

Craig lives in Ballachulish, on the west coast of Scotland. He can be found exploring the mountains and glens hill walking or mountain biking. He loves Scotland's wild places; its rugged coastlines and soaring peaks. Almost a decade ago, he climbed the famous Buachaille Etive Mor in Glencoe, and with incredibly good snow conditions, he managed to slide down all the way back to the car. “Mountaineering in the winter hills is a much more fun experience if the snow conditions allow this mode of transport!” he quips. But his real passion lies in the long, intricate, and often bloody history for which Scotland is famous, and he loves nothing more than sharing this passion with all who join him on his travels. He loves working outdoors, educating, and showcasing the beautiful and fascinating country he lives in. Craig enjoys weaving stories with all of his tours, transporting people back in time and making them feel like they’re a part of the story. He also tries to interlink historical events together to give a greater understanding of how, where, and why the events took place. Here’s a fun fact: Craig was a member of the Ghost Club set up by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle to investigate places suspected of harboring ghosts!

Craig has been guiding since Apr 2008

Beautiful tour as always - the area is amazing and always changing with the time of year and the weather. It always looks different and there is always something new to see. Craig has a great understanding of the area and the plant life and wildlife and makes it so interesting.

I am a MacDonald and Urquhart and have seen some of Scotland but going to the Highlands with Craig was awesome. Walking the trails, babbling streams, forests , varied heathers, mountains, lichen, along with history was a treat for me, both a MacDonald and an Urquhart
