Customer Kudos

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.

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.

 

 

 

Describe Your Dream and We’ll Make it Come to Life!

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.

Destinations

Bespoke Adventures

Wilderness Scotland operates all across the country, from the islands of Shetland and Orkney in the north, the Cairngorms National Park in the east, the Outer Hebrides and St Kilda in the west right down to the Trossachs and the Scottish Borders in the south.

We work with a number of luxury accommodation partners in each area, so if there is a particular place you wish to visit, do let us know and we can design your itinerary accordingly.

Great itinerary that combined cycling through a variety of landscapes with seeing key cultural sights. Accomodations were spotless, comfortable and very friendly and our guide Ross did all he could to cater to our interests.

Ross did lots of on the spot research to tailor the trip on the go, and was great at checking the weather conditions and adapting the itinerary accordingly. He was great company and very knowledgable about cycling and all sorts of outdoor pursuits.
The Bottom Line
Our first experience with a tailor made trip. Definitely worth it!

The Plockton Inn was marginal, but I know the area accommodations are limited.

TEAM WILDERNESS RESPONSE:
The Plockton Inn is in a great location with little other choice around as you have suggested. They offer great food and a lively atmosphere with many locals using the inn which is in part why we use this accommodation for our clients - an immersive Scottish experience. We will pass your feedback on to the inn and hope we can future experiences from marginal to great!
Your Guide
Very impressed with their knowledge. Friendly, and fit right in with our group. Enjoyed spending time with them.
The Bottom Line
Great trip. Would like to have traveled a little less day to day getting to our activity. Nice people and country. Thanks

Communication was timely and informative.
Trip Comments
Our guides (Ross and Brian) were awesome. Events that we selected met every expectation.
Accommodation and Food
We asked for a high end experience and that is exactly what was delivered.
Your Guide
Ross and Brian were excellent. They made out trip safe and fun. They were flexible in addressing our preferences, and worked hard to plan. They were also very knowledgable about all aspects of our experience from our events, to geological facts, and the history of Scotland. Additionally, they were very helpful when it came to things as simply as how to mail something to where to go shopping. These two made a huge difference in our experience.
The Bottom Line
Great planning, great communication, and great execution.

Pre-Trip Service
It was nice to get the 'final' itinerary for the trip prior to our departure but it sure seems like we could have had them several weeks earlier so I could have ensured I was properly equipped.

TEAM WILDERNESS RESPONSE:
We endeavor to send final information to clients approximately 4 weeks prior to departure although with tailor made trips, requirements for the trip are discussed at time of trip creation so you should have all the information you need well in advance. WE are always happy to receive a call if you have any questiosn prior to receiving your final trip information :-)
Trip Comments
The guides we were matched up with were an excellent fit for our needs.
Accommodation and Food
On one hand it was nice to stay in the same lodging for several days (Plochton) but it seems like we did a lot of additional driving to make that location work and the accomodations were only OK. Perhaps someplace on Isle of Skye would have entailed less driving and potentially a nicer Inn. We typically chose dinner so our choices met our needs; breakfast was provided by our lodging and I have no complaints about that or lunch.

TEAM WILDERNESS RESPONSE:
It's always a balance between moving on each day and staying in one location for a few days to immerse yourself in the local area. Part of the reason there was additional driving was that this trip was tailored further throughout your time in Scotland to better fit your requirements for the trip - one of the advantages of opting for tailor made is that this can be done compared to a scheduled trip although not possible to change accommodation at short notice. In hindsight, the Isle of Skye would have been a good option and next time we'll have an even better idea of what your desired trip should entail.
Your Guide
The guides get an A+ every day.
The Bottom Line
A very nice experience and I would recommend your organization to a friend; I would also use your organization should I plan to come back to Scotland in the future. Thank you very much for a great experience (this was my third time visiting Scotland).
