For the days you’re self-guided we’ll provide you with plenty of suggestions for scenic walks along with route notes and maps. All you need to do is arrange your transport from point to point. At the end of each day you can enjoy the comfort of superior accommodation featuring a range of 4 or 5 star country houses and castles.

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.

Discovery Journey - Arisaig and the Small Isles
A great car less trip away from the city in a beautiful area of Britain which we would like to return to. We liked the sleeper experience too. The accomodation on Eigg was particularly special and interesting. Muck and Rum would have felt even more remote if we had gone there. We enjoyed it a lot.

Discovery Journey - Arisaig and the Small Isles
Very enjoyable trip altogether, although I would have preferred more time on Eigg and less time on Arisaig.
I suggest you consider the possibilty of not being able to travel to or from Eigg in the event of bad weather. On the day we were due to go to Eigg it was uncertain until that morning that we would be able to travel there, and we didn't know what we would do if we couldn't. Also we were wondering what we would have done if we couldn't travel back to Arisaig to catch our train
Also it would have been useful to know that you can take an overnight train to Fort William

TEAM WILDERNESS RESPONSE: The balance between time in Arisaig and Eigg varies from client to client but the standard itinerary we offer of 3 consecutive nights in each location works better from an itinerary perspective. We do like to discuss travel options prior to booking so encourage clients to call us us if they do have any travel questions such as best options for train travel.

Bad weather contingencies are different with each departure and the only way to ensure you have accommodation at all times is to double book hotels which would add to the trip cost so is not an ideal solution. We are here to support our clients with alternative arrangements in this situation which are few and far between but do recommend everyone travels with insurance cover in place in case of travel delay.
