Our base is in the picturesque village of Tomintoul situated in the North Eastern Cairngorms within the Cairngorm National Park and Glenlivet Crown Estate. Tomintoul is also the highest village in the Highlands at 354m (1,160 feet).
We think it is an ideal place to base yourself for walking and Mountain Trekking, as well as discovering the other delights the area has to offer, including distilleries, mountain and road biking, castles and fishing.
However, if you prefer, we can start a Mountain Trek from anywhere in the Cairngorms or Scotland in general. Just let us know where you would like to begin and end your adventure.
