Horseback Riding in Scotland

Scotland, land of myths, tales and ballads is one of the United Kingdom’s most charismatic locations. Scottish people have always been fiercely loyal and have managed to maintain a unique cultural identity, and even today many people still relate strongly to their clanship roots. Much of Scotland is rural, exemplified by wild, beautiful mountain peaks and deep glassy lakes. Horseback riding in Scotland is a superb way to come face to face with the Scottish culture and landscape. Meet friendly locals, learn about the clans, and visit medieval chapels which hold an important role in the history of the land.

Ride along old, grass overgrown trails and go cross country over the high bogs, where sheep are grazing, some belonging to the immense properties of the Scottish Clans. Explore the wide open spaces the highlands have to offer and relax in the peace and tranquility of the landscape. Traverse lands steeped in history, like the base at St Bridget Farm, site of the medieval chapel, and from 1738-1745 home of the famous Gordon of Glenbucket, who was deeply involved with the Jacobite Risings of 1715 and 1745.
