MacBackpackers: The Ultimate Scottish Adventure

The student party of the year is back on the 2nd-3rd October at Glasgow’s SECC, and you’ll bet that there will be more gifts to take home than Christmas and birthdays wrapped up in one. So make sure you take a sizeable bag, work on your guns to prepare for some heavy lifting and get ready to meet over 100 of our super exhibitors who’ll be setting up stall at Freshers’ Festival 2014.

Just one of these exhibitors will be the tremendous MacBackpackers tours. Take a hop, skip and a jump along to their stall during our two-day event, make the most of their exclusive offers, and find out more about exploring mighty Scotland. From tracking down Nessie, to climbing mountains to even doing a Highland fling – there are activities for everyone that are sure to bring out their inner haggis (we know they’re not real).



Owned and run by Scottish backpackers, MacBackpackers provide extremely high quality, yet fun and informal, fully guided tours of Scotland, designed for 18-35 independent travellers. Since the first tour back in 1998, over 80,000 backpackers have travelled around Scotland with the company.

To kick off this year’s Freshers Festival with a bang, you’ll find 50% off their spectacular standard extended tours and £20 off Christmas & Hogmanay package tours for bookings made on the day. So if you’ve been dying re-imagine a few ‘Braveheart’ scenes, or simply wish to broaden your horizons and experience pastures new, visit the website to see the epic journeys that you can choose to embark on, and view the galleries to feast your eyes on just some of the sublime locations such as these beauties below!



If you’ve been neglecting your beloved country and can’t remember the last time that you got off the couch, or if you’re new to Scotland and want to take in the sights, the scenery and the sublime people, guarantee that you make the MacBackpackers stall a well deserved pit-stop on your trek around the Freshers’ Festival. There’s no doubt that they’ll have a mini (or big) adventure in store for you.
