Celebrate Midsummer in the Mountains

Midsummer has always been a time for celebration. Man has always understood that the sun and its rays are essential to all forms of life and, over the centuries, he has built many monuments and devised many rituals to celebrate and mark the longest day of the year.

Today, man’s ingenuity has come up with a new way to celebrate midsummer in a truly spectacular manner. Highland Adventure Safaris are proud to offer a special Midsummer Sundowner Safari on 21 June.

This unique safari will take guests to a remote spot at 3,000 feet to watch the sun set on the longest day of the year. Views will extend over Schiehallion, Glen Lyon and Loch Rannoch to the distant peak of Ben Nevis, some 50 miles to the west. Guests will share this wild landscape with ospreys, eagles, red deer and mountain hares as they enjoy a glass of wine and a dram of whisky.

The John Muir Trust, the environmental body who manage Schiehallion, have said, “Only in wild places can we truly experience what it is to be alive, to be part of the web of all life on earth”.

What better way to celebrate being alive than to go to a truly wild place to mark the longest day of the year?

Further Information
The Midsummer Sundowner Safari will leave from the Highland Adventures Safari Lodge near Aberfeldy at 8.00pm, returning after sunset on 21 June. Places on the safari cost £35 per person and must be booked in advance. Contact Highland Adventure Safaris here.
