Mountain Biking - The Hebridean Trail
My friends said "How Much " for a week in Scotland . I came home thinking what an absolute bargain the trip was . I'm already thinking about booking my next trip to the Hebrides or maybe a bigger challenge ,the coast to coast or sea kayaking . Whichever I will be back to Scotland soon .

Wilderness Walking - Outer Hebrides & Skye
Wilderness Scotland is by far the best and most professional hiking experience we have ever had. I would recommend them above any other guided hiking firm we have ever used in over 8 years of doing guided hikes in Ireland, France, Spain and Scotland.

TEAM WILDERNESS RESPONSE:
We have an awesome team of people working with us, all proud to be doing what we do and delighted when we can make such an impact. Thank you

Sea Kayaking - Scottish Sea Kayak Trail North - Gaelic Coast
I really do feel that with Wilderness Scotland, I am being shown the best of Scotland by people who are passionate about the place. The worst thing about this trip was the smell of my wetshoes after five days, the best was pretty much all the time spent on the water, closely followed by the couple of hours in Plockton Shores restaurant. This was a brilliant holiday.
