We highly recommend that all trekkers take out their own insurance to cover the following:

    • Incurred costs in the event of us having to cancel your trek (including any transport or accommodation you may have booked).
    • The cost of assistance (including repatriation) in the event of accident or illness.
    • Loss of personal items and money.


    • Cancellations must be made in writing. This includes email. 
    • All deposits are non refundable except if Trek Scotland has to cancel your trek. In this case all of your deposit will be refunded. 
    • If you cancel more than 28 days before your trek takes place, your payment will be refunded minus a 20% booking deposit. Please be aware that if you cancel within the 28 days before the trek NO refunds are available. However, if you find someone to fill your place we will return your payment.
