If you’re looking for the perfect activity holiday in the British Isles then you should take a look at the range of excellent tours we offer at HF Holidays.

We have a whole range of guided walking holidays on offer, in every corner of the country; from Devon and Cornwall, down in the south west, to the Scottish Highlands in the far North. Featured holidays this month include:

The Western Highlands

This fascinating tour, of the area around Glen Coe, offers up the best of the Scottish lochs. It’s the ideal tour for keen mountain walkers too, with the tour passing through, and over, the glens, ridges and peaks of the Western Highlands.

Highlights include historic tours around Glen Coe, including the chance to learn about the Glen Coe’s infamous massacre; some of the best mountain walking in Britain, with the opportunity to climb Ben Nevis; and exciting gala evenings, which feature time-honoured traditions such as piping in the haggis.

The North York Moors

If you’re after something a little less intense, then the tour we offer of the North York Moors may be more to your liking. Based in the area around Whitby, this guided tour will allow you to experience the region’s stunning coastline and picturesque moorland.

Some of the highlights include visiting the North York Moors National Park, with its beautiful views; a stay at the historic town of Whitby, complete with iconic ruined abbey  and pretty harbour area; and trips on the famous North Yorkshire Moors railway, with its stunning collection of historic steam trains.
