Join me as I go exploring in Glen Nevis, deep in the heart of the Scottish Highlands in the shadow of the UK's highest mountain - Ben Nevis. Set in the middle of Lochaber, this area was for centuries seen as the real "Wild West" - local clans behaved with impunity, and the long arm of Scottish Law was far, far away. This led to the area being home to some of the most warlike and unruly of all the Highland Clans. It is for this reason that the area turned out in great numbers for Bonnie Prince Charlie in 1745, and subsequently suffered the most for their loyalty. On this tour we will stroll through the rich tapestry of time, from Iron Age mysteries to bloody clan feuds; from the price of insurrection to the study of climatology; from a competitive game of Quidditch to Mel Gibson in a skirt - Glen Nevis has seen it all. Throw in some fascinating folk lore, towering mountain peaks and tree lined meadows and you have the recipe for a perfect getaway! Meet me in the heather!
Craig lives in Ballachulish, on the west coast of Scotland. He can be found exploring the mountains and glens, hill walking or mountain biking. He loves Scotland’s wild places, its rugged coastlines and soaring peaks. But his real passion lies in the long, intricate and often bloody history for which Scotland is famous and he loves nothing more than sharing this passion with all who join him on his travels. Loaded with stories – both humorous and fascinating – a tour with Craig is both rewarding and fun.

Craig’s trips never fail. You get history, nature and myths. I think he should do an audiobook of all the Scottish myths and legends: it would be a best seller!!

A wonderful tour. It's great to see how the area changes with the seasons and add in the weather and it feels like a completely new tour every time. Craig is such a great story teller, knows so much about the local plants and wildlife and has an incredible knowledge of the history, he makes every tour even more enjoyable.
