The Great Family Adventure Holiday - Treasure Highlands

Treasure Highlands

The famous novel by Robert Louis Stevenson, Treasure Island, was written here, in the Cairngorms National Park in 1881!

With this in mind we have designed an action packed adventure all the family can enjoy.

In the midst of breath taking scenery you will experience and learn about the great outdoors. On top of kayaking, mountain biking and bush crafting you will gather clues in each destination to find the hidden treasure while geo-caching on the final day. One of the many highlights of the trip will be a visit to the famous viaduct featured in the Harry Potter movies, timed perfectly to see the steam train crossing. You will also visit a real Highland Games, tiny desert islands and encounter both fascinating wildlife and enchanting marine life. Oh and not to forget the opportunity to spot Nessie, the friendly Loch Ness Monster.

This will be a family holiday remembered for years to come!
