Every client receives a feedback survey when they return from their guided, self guided or tailor made holiday with us.

Once completed the review is published on our website just as soon as our database updates. The little touches and details are important to us and where issues are raised we make positive changes to our trips to improve your experience.

That's why we read each of our client's reviews and although we don't respond to all of them, if it's glowing feedback then we get the satisfaction of helping to make your holidays truly memorable.

Sea Kayaking - Scottish Sea Kayak Trail South - The Whisky Coast
WS is an very professionally run organization. I have taken over 20 kayak trips with outfitters, and WS ranks with the best-run of them.

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.

Open Canoeing - North West Highlands
One of the best trips we've ever done. For me, perhaps the most inspirational moment was the shared sense of awe as we paddled across Loch Sionascaig with the amphitheatre of mountains around us on a brilliant day. Thank you Kirk, Laura and all the team.
