For 2011, in response to many requests, About Argyll Walking Holidays is launching two new hiking vacations in Scotland, one to the Small Isles and the other to Shetland, and is sure both will be great successes.
The Small Isles in Scotland are surely amongst everyone's favourite childhood islands with their funny, magical names…Rum, Canna, Eigg and, gloriously, Muck. Favourite names, perhaps, but not so easy to visit at the drop of a hat, because of the one thing dream islands should always have along with beauty, tranquillity and mystery…thoroughgoing remoteness. About Argyll will sort out all the logistics, get you there and then promises to let the islands do what they do best…enchant during this hiking trip.

From the Gael to the Viking. "A visit to Scotland's nearest approach to the midnight sun was requested by so many About Argyll clients that we would have been very silly not to have added this hiking vacation into our programme' says Frieda Bos, director of About Argyll Walking Holidays. And so here it is for 2011, a hiking tour to Shetland, where Norway ruled until 1469 and where the names of places and people tell a Viking tale, not a Gaelic one. A northern remoteness after the western remoteness of the Small Isles, with a culture stunningly on display in archaeological gems across the archipelago, from Jarlshof to Mousa and a thousand less famous but equally special places. And as for Shetland's wildlife… just to mention it is to invite too many superlatives. A week hiking here, says everyone at About Argyll, is frankly unforgettable.

About Argyll Walking Holidays, as the name suggests, started in Argyll in Scotland. Since 1995 it has run high-quality, essentially personal hiking vacations there, building up a reputation for care and quality. Deliberately small-scale, it has created a community from amongst its clients, who quickly become friends. Full details of all of About Argyll's hiking trips can be seen on its website at http://www.aboutargyll.co.uk
