Sea Kayaking - Scottish Sea Kayak Trail South - The Whisky Coast
This was our 5th trip with Wilderness Scotland, and as always we had a great time, and were left wanting more.

Wildlife Adventures - The Shetland Isles
I have had two holidays with Wilderness Scotland, and each of them has exceeded expectations. I have also recommended you to two people who have come on your holidays. Your trips are well organised, well structured, pack in variety, and your guides combine a rare combination of people skills and technical expertise.

Most inspirational moment was Mossa ( see above)

Sea Kayaking - West Coast Explorer
Don’t tell my wife, but best holiday ever.
A great chance to meet a superb group of people, spend valuable time with my son and live a truly outdoor life in beautiful surroundings.
most inspirational moment? Carrying our Kayaks from our camp site, up the river to paddle around Loch Coruisk with a beautiful sighting of a pair of Golden Eagles.
