We took our four and six year old niece and nephew out on a very wet afternoon here for a pony trek. Despite one of them being extremely nervous and unsure beforehand they both had a fantastic experience on their ponies Dora and Lady!

We loved our visit to Gairloch Trekking Centre. My 2 kids (7 & 8 yo) had a full morning of helping with the horses and a trek on the stunning Red Point beach. I would highly recommend Gairloch Trekking Centre to any family with kids who enjoy this kind of activity.

Super horses & ponies; lovely people; stunning scenery - what's not to like? Allow plenty time to get there - ambling cattle and sheep on the road out with no inclination to move!

10 year old daughter has been for two riding breaks this July.And has another booked. Just like at Flowerdale, she has had a brilliant horsie day. Tired but very happy. Great helpful and friendly staff. Plus cute ponies, dogs and Jack the cat. Been constantly good over the last 6 years that our three children have been riding there and... More

My kids and another friend and her kids spent a wonderful afternoon riding. I walked along and we trekked from the stables to the beach at Red Point. The kids loved it. My son was exceptionally nervous and the girls leading the horse he was on were amazingly patient answering every scenario he could think of. After we got back... More

I would recommend this place for all horse lovers! Great people who run the Trekking centre. Big thanks to Kim who took us out on a brilliant trek! Will be visiting again when I'm next up. Couldn't have asked for more loving and friendly ponies. I was on Boss. Loved him. You can't beat galloping along that beach with those... More

Last week I had the most wonderful ride at Red Point beach. The weather was glorious - postcard blue sky and seas, golden beach and the long profile of Skye on the horizon. A perfect setting! Danielle and her team were so helpful and conscientious. They were with us every inch of the way, explaining the terrain, giving us advice... More

Just back from an amazing beach ride. Horses were very well behaved and the staff very attentive with my friend and I. The views were simply stunning and the sun was shining. What an amazing experience.

Two of our sons (age 11 and 9) went on a short trek and loved it whilst others in the group went on a walk to the Flowerdale Waterfalls which starts at the same point. Both trekkers scored it 10/10. Enough said! Many thanks

It's a little out of the way, but worth it. Lovely welcoming atmosphere. You must book in advance for this but when we were there it was £12 for 1/2 an hour which is a phenomenal price. Even our local horse riding centre is more than double the price. My kids always love it there.
