The six-day journeys involve hundreds of miles of off-road driving in the Dumfries & Galloway and Ayrshire regions of Scotland, using routes across spectacular estates which have not allowed access for vehicles until now.
Seeing new places is the aim of the game, rather than tackling extreme terrain, and travellers have a good chance of encountering elusive Scottish wildlife such as red deer, osprey and red squirrels. If that’s not exotic enough for you, try the ‘bolt-on’ extras such as tank driving, fly fishing and yurt camping.
Tours typically begin near Carlisle and finish at Mull of Galloway lighthouse. Five nights are spent in based in one location in Galloway from where you’ll set out each morning to explore a different area.
Five tours are scheduled for 2014, with two in July, two in August and one in October. If your Land Rover is feeling poorly, 4x4TreksGalloway have vehicles with roof tents available to hire.
