Recommend the Open Canoeing on the River Spey - 4 days of heaven!
Accommodation and Food
Wild camping on the River Spey is pushing the term "accommodation", but the tents and communal teepee were perfect.
Your Guide
Both Grant and Moose were truly superb - there were absolutely no negative points at all - a true credit to Wilderness Scotland.
The Bottom Line
I would thoroughly recommend the Open Canoeing on the River Spey.

I was truly awed by the scenery in the highlands, Kinloch Lodge was a wonderful experience; perfect location, comfortable, wonderful food served by a charming young couple. Each day was special but my favourite day was the hike up Ben Hope.
Having said that, we had excellent weather and the midges were not a problem.
I would do this trip again.
Accommodation and Food
Comfortable in an a beautiful, private location. Excellent food and staff.
Your Guide
Kept us well informed of plans, and involved us in making or changing plans. Ken took the time to ensure that everyone in the group was having the experience that was right for them. He was very knowledgeable re history and all things Scottish!
The Bottom Line
I think I have said it all........I will travel again with Wilderness Scotland and I could easily do this Northwest Highland trip again.

Haven’t done any reading about trip, did not know the distances or vertical feet until leaving for Scotland....it was one less thing to worry about .. I was the slow poke of the group.
Ned recommended you so I knew I am in good hands
Trip Comments
Highlight was Lucy doing some kind of noodle dance, wish I videotaped it. Two Craig’s in kilts looking very Scottish was also a highlight. Guides made a trip for us and spoiled us rotten. I loved to watch how fast was the process of checking in - luggage flying into rooms, Craig charging with luggage skipping steps like a rocket...Lucy pointing us to rooms and Craig S handing keys.
Seeing HRM Queen Elizabeth II was the most memorable event
Accommodation and Food
I liked accommodations although was getting lost in multiple hallways and staircases. They had local character and great bathrooms except some confusion with how to turn shower on, flushing toilets was not my strongest point, requiring some experience.
Your Guide
Loved them all...

Pre-Trip Service
just a little pushy at times but all info required was willinglyprovided
Trip Comments
Would have been even better with finer weather and absence of a cold virus that quickly overtook everyone in the group; this increased the effort required to undertake and appreciate some of the outings.
Accommodation and Food
Comfortable bed and sittting room; one possible improvement would be to up-grade the showers.
Your Guide
Adam consulted the whole group concerning options, led us on a sensible choice of outings and supported each individual well. In no aspect did his walk leadership fail to impress. His partnership with Andy was successful. His social interaction and provision of information was at just the level for the members of this group. A+
The Bottom Line
A well-designed trip that was effectively delivered; quality was high but so was the price; many of my walking colleagues might baulk at the cost.

I appreciated Dave ringing head office to arrange an en suite with a bath instead of a shower, 2 days in I realised I needed to soak at the end of the day!
Accommodation and Food
Some were better than others
Your Guide
Great support, clear breakdown of the route the night before was very worthwhile and when one route was closed the guides sorted another route seamlessly for us clients! It actually worked out better - well done guys!
The Bottom Line
All you have to think about is cycling! Everything else is taken care of wonderfully! This is our 2nd cycling trip. Thank you to all the wilderness team.

Adam was an excellent guide. He had the necessary expertise and people skills dealing with us as a group with grace and good humour. He is also a very good harmonica player!!
Accommodation and Food
Cosy place. Nice to be able to make cups of tea and fill flasks in the kitchen. The drying area was a little inadequate being in the bathroom area but it worked.

Already covered this earlier, but Adam was an excellent guide.
