"I have already recommended Scotland wilderness to my friends One of the most inspirational moments for me came when as we were on a climbing road on one of the hardest days a stag emerged on a craggy mountain top to check us out. I also enjoyed the lunch we took in a bothey. Our party were also delighted to see a red squirrel which Jeremy spotted and pointed out to us . The endlessly beautiful colors and beauty of the landscape was what I had chosen this trip to see and it was beyond my expectations.

"It was fantastic to have such an enthusiastic naturalist as a guide in the form of the knowledgeable and enthusiastic Graham Uney. This really made the trip for me and I would recommend this trip to anyone with an interest in walking, wildlife or archaeology as all bases are comprehensively covered!"
