I would have put this at 5 after my last trip. The accommodation on this one made me think I could put the trip together myself more cost effectively or go somewhere else.

Tailor Made - The Hebridean Trail - Logan
In retrospect, it was a great holiday and allowed me to completely forget about work for a while!
Probably I wouldn't have attempted this trip if I had known in advance about the level of fitness required. But having said that, I appreciate being pushed a bit and always had the opportunity to opt out if things got too bad. And being with a group of friends, I never felt any pressure to do anything crazy. By the end of the week I was certainly fitter than when I started and felt more than able to keep up with the group. It probably would have been a bit easier/pleasant if I had put in a bit more training before the trip, but that's easy to say in hindsight.
As I don't live in the UK, getting to/from Inverness was a bit of a pain so I should perhaps have investigated flying direct to Stornoway - this could have eased the logistics but was perhaps only a problem for me?
Overall, it was an excellent week and I would enthusiastically recommend the trip to others (once I'd explained the exertion level!) especially if they could be sure to be guided by Tim & Henry.

The personal service to create your tailored dream holiday.

Our tailor-made holiday service caters for private groups of all sizes and budgets to enjoy a bespoke holiday in the Highlands and Islands of Scotland.

This service allows us to organise your dream holiday on your terms. We love the opportunity to use our knowledge, expertise and experience to design and deliver the perfect and unique holiday experience for you. So even if you just have an inkling of an idea, please drop us a line as the earlier we can start planning, the more personalised we can be!

Wilderness Scotland Tailor Made Holidays – Our Approach

  • Let’s talk! You will have a dedicated expert travel designer to help you create the trip of your dreams
  • Getting creative! We’ll design an innovative itinerary for you, building in superb accommodation, activities and experiences.
  • Follow your passions! We can build your trip around a theme such as whisky adventures, ancient castles or Scottish culture with a range of activities suitable for all.
  • Let’s do it! Once we have agreed an itinerary and price for your trip, we take a 25% deposit and confirm all arrangements on your preferred travel dates.
  • Enjoy! When the time comes, our expert guides will lead on your dream Scottish holiday, backed up by our full-time office team.

 

Drop us a line!

Final trip price will vary depending on a number of factors including group size, standard of accommodation and activity inclusions but it is useful for us to know which budget range you fall into when creating a bespoke itinerary.

Why choose Tailor Made for your holiday?

Perhaps you like an itinerary but the dates don’t work for you. No problem! We can run it just for you as a private departure, perhaps customising some elements of it, such as upgraded accommodation. Maybe you are travelling with friends or family and would prefer the intimacy and flexibility of a private trip. Or maybe you just want to tap into our expertise and have us create a truly magical holiday, just for you. We can also deliver outstanding experiences for corporate groups. Simply contact us and we’ll get to work!

Wilderness Scotland tailor made holidays are available for any group size. Small groups (less than 4 people) share fixed costs (such as guides and transfers) across fewer people so the per person cost tends to be higher with smaller groups. However, smaller groups benefit from a more personal service, so it is still good value for money.

Get Inspired!

Some examples of the kind of experiences we have created in the past.

Bespoke AdventuresHighland Castle Break
We work with a number of exclusive Highland castles, sleeping 8 to 30 people. Escape for a long weekend or spend a week living like kings. As well as the accommodation, our expert guides will fill your days with activities such as sea kayaking, canoeing, guided walks and more.

 

 

 

Luxury Yacht CharterBespoke Adventures

We have access to a number of exclusive yachts for private charter. Chartering a sailing yacht, with an experienced skipper, chef and a walking guide on board is a magnificent way to explore Scotland’s west coast and islands. You will be accessing remote bays, endless white sandy beaches and hills to explore, often sharing these locations with just the local wildlife.

 

 

Bespoke AdventuresLuxury Camping

Get into the real wilderness in style. You will camp wild, far from any facilities, with the help of our expert guides and support team. The camps may use Mongolian-style yurts or traditional mountain tents but you’ll enjoy fantastic meals and amazing wilderness experiences in style.

Trip Comments
The cycling was as demanding as I feared! I certainly had a sense of accomplishment when it was finished, but did worry that it was going to kill me in the process! I realise it's difficult to pitch a tour for varying levels of fitness and so this is not really a criticism - I didn't manage to get in the extent of pre-vacation training I had envisaged. And the one day we had to change our itinerary for weather reasons, resulted in (for me) a very demanding level of exertion which did lead me to question whether I was sane to have embarked on the tour. But my friends were less phased than I was, and I did make it, so everything worked out. I guess for my next Wilderness Scotland trip, I would be inquiring more closely about the relative challenge of a particular route.

Both Henry and Tim were excellent. Seemed to think of everything, were very well informed, and worked well as a team. Also nice guys!

Lack of detailed itinerary and slow response to some emails let down otherwise good service.
Trip Comments
Both guides were great, the food excellent, hotels nice enough and the route well thought out and flexible to accommodate changes in weather conditions. A little disappointed to miss the rib crossing and consequently spend more time on road.

Pre-Trip Service
We worked out a non-standard trip to several places, with occasional guide services for our walking trips. Rachael was very accommodating and helpful with suggestions and changes to accommodate our schedule and interests.
In retrospect, it was difficult for us at our age to be prepared for a guided walk early in the morning after a drive to a new location. For us, it might have been better to stay 5 days at each location and have the guide meet us on the 3rd day, after we had settled in,
Trip Comments
We visited 4 different areas, the Cairngorms, Assynt, Hebrides, and Trossacks. The highlights were the Assynt and Hebrides for their uninhabited, wild beauty. We rarely return to the same locations, but we are tempted by these or similar areas in Scotland.

Your Guide
Kevin, in the Cairngorms, faced an unknown couple, aged 73, and limited ability and high winds,with flexibility and knowledge.
Mike (Assynt) used his knowledge of the area to help us find memorable locations on our own that fit our energy level.
Mike in the Hebrides re-arranged his schedule to accommodate our very late arrival in Lewis (23 hr) and scheduled a beautiful walk for us on the 3rd day. He also arranged for pick-up at the end of the walk. We learned a great deal about the Hebrides from him.
Zoe, in the Trossacks, was limited in her knowledge of the area but led us on a pleasant, short hike.
The Bottom Line
The trip led us to 4 wonderful, scenic locations in Scotland and allowed us the flexibility to walk or sightsee as our energy allowed. The accommodations were wonderful, each presenting a sense of place. Food was a major, pleasant surprise at all lodgings although we expected good food at the Albannach (Michelin rated). For someone who wants to walk in Scotland but is uncertain about walking every day on a fixed schedule, I would recommend a self-guided trip such as this one very highly. By the way, the weather in mid-May was outstanding, we only used our raingear twice. And no midges, probably either a myth or arranged by Wilderness Scotland to wait till we had left.....
