Who are we

 We have years of organising trip logistics and transportation experience, a nice-looking and spacious van, and a trailer for every occasion: Highland Yaks has the local and specialist knowledge you need plus the means to take you and your kit right to the heart of your adventure – and get you back for coffee and cake afterwards.

Alexander Kelt, Owner, Highland Yaks


Originally from New Zealand, I’ve been living in Scotland with my family since 2010, enjoying everything this fantastic country has to offer and running a set of lodges nearby. Mountain and road cycling are in my top two interests, followed by getting into the hills, golf, fishing, whisky and craft beer. I have my Mountain Bike Leader (MBL) award, I’m a ski instructor and a current first aider.

The formalities

As a team, we’re fully insured to do the type of work we do, our drivers and The Yak Van are appropriately licensed through the Highland Council.
