Breadalbane - Home of Giants

Killin Stone Circle

Private Village Tour - Morning / Afternoon

£99 - 2 Hours (approx) 


Looking to experience breath-taking scenery with a local viewpoint? If you are, then this short tour is the best option for you. Let me take care of you, as we take a journey from the Stone Circle of Killin, to embrace the powerful energy of Dochart Falls; visit a former meal mill, founded by the Irish, Gaelic-speaking priest St Fillan; stroll to Fingal's Stone, the burial-place of Fionn Mac Cumhaill, the great warrior from Celtic mythology. Then explore the ruins of Finlarig Castle and finally to the resting nest of Loch Tay, where we shall learn of the folkloric tale of its origin.

Achmore Wood & Creag Bhuidhe

£99 - 2 Hours (approx)


Do you enjoy walking and being surrounded by trees and beautiful mountain landscapes? Would you like to see a unique view of Loch Tay from a mountain? If so, then this short tour is the best option for you. Join me, as we take a walk through Achmore Wood, once formerly part of the old Breadalbane Estate. And then to Sron a’ Chlachain, translated as 'The nose of the village' to the peak of Creag Bhuidhe, enjoying the many incredible views of Killin and beyond. 

Tirai / "Land of Joy"


£99 - 2 Hours (approx) - Exclusive Tour

Come and rediscover the lost world of Tirai, a village once bustling with life in the 19th-century. A place rich in historical 'human activity' for the last 6,000 years. For example, once a spiritual crossing of Christian origin, through the glens of Lochay and Lyon and much more. Beginning our tour at Moirlanich Longhouse, we will take a look around this original cottage and learn of rural family life. From there, we will visit a site made up of Cup and Ring marks (Pre-historic Art from the Neolithic Age) and attempt to trace out their intrinsic meaning. And then, within a few minutes having arrived at the village of Tirai, we will learn about its history and the standing stone, The Calling Stone, placed at the centre of the village. Come and be part of its history by bearing witness, bringing all that you see back to life.

Dark Skies at Loch Tay - Night Walk

£149 - 2 Hours

Come and experience the beauty of a mountain village sky at night. Away from urban lights, look up instead to a clear sky and witness the eternity and wonder of our dark skies. Listen out for the many different animal sounds surrounding you, as we take a walk through Wilderness; letting every star that guides you become your deepest wish made true. What are you waiting for?  Let's book a date. 

Seasonal Tours - Autumn

Walk 'n' Fire

£149 - 3 Hours (approx) 

Subject to Availability 

This years favourite Eternal Mountain seasonal tour is Walk 'n' Fire. After a few hours of walking through infinite autumn landscapes, from mountains to hilltops and forests to woodlands, there is nothing more amazing and cosy, in-between the cold temperatures to sit and relax in front of a warm fire. Come with me, for a great day out with Nature and follow a trail of designated fire spots - as we observe the passing of one of Nature's essential and beautiful cycles.

“Walking thus, hour after hour, the senses keyed, one walks the flesh transparent. But no metaphor, transparent, or light as air, is adequate. The body is not made negligible, but paramount. Flesh is not annihilated but fulfilled. One is not bodiless, but essential body.” 

― Nan Shepherd, The Living Mountain

 “Patrick provides a unique, alternative perspective on the local area in his tours. His way of seeing humanity's deep embeddedness will give food for thought and inspire different ways of living in the challenging circumstances of our times.”
