100 Years of ‘The Yosemite’ Nourishes a New Walking Holiday Programme in Scotland
Here in Scotland, at About Argyll Walking Holidays, 2012 brings a new programme of guided highlands and islands walking holidays - and also renewed thoughts of John Muir, conservation and the centrality of wild places to our well-being.
In 1912 John Muir published ‘The Yosemite’, a praise to a unique mountain landscape and a passionate advocacy of its conservation for the benefit of human mental and physical health. Muir, arguably Scotland’s greatest contributor to global conservation, saw sanity and joy in the wilderness experience, an attitude that underlies the thinking behind every walking programme produced by About Argyll Walking Holidays and which also lies behind the growing interest in guided walking holidays in Scotland.
Muir liked to get to grips with a landscape. At About Argyll Walking Holidays they like to do exactly the same. Their guides work together, spending time and care in the field to plan and prepare each holiday so that they are confident of offering each guest an out-of-the-way experience worthy of the tradition of Muir’s “natural beauty hunger”. The new programme, takes inquisitive clients off the beaten track in ways and places not readily discovered by unassisted visitors, however curious.
About Argyll Walking Holidays, as the name suggests, started in Argyll in Scotland. Since 1995 it has run high-quality, essentially personal walking tours, building up a reputation for care and quality. Deliberately small-scale, it has created a community of its client group, many of whom quickly become friends.
