Safety comes first so all of our family adventure holidays are led by fully qualified and experienced guides.

The activities are pitched at an introductory level, so no previous experience is required. You just need to be willing to give the activities a shot!

We recommend that your children are aged around 9-15 years old for these trips. As well as guided activities, we also build in some free time for you to spend as you please.

Our trips are specially designed for private family groups whether that’s just your family, or with friends. Browse our wide range of family adventure vacations below. Prices may vary depending on group size. Some of our self-guided trips are perfect for families and, of course, we also offer a tailor made holiday service.

Trip Reviews

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.

Family Adventure - Treasure Highlands
It was a brilliant trip. We would go to Scotland again and we would use Wilderness Scotland again. Having a guide is essential for us because it stops our boys from fighting with each other but the best bit was trying very new experiences in a friendly, manageable way. We were exhausted every night but looked forward to each new activity.

Thank you for your comments, we are delighted that you had a wonderful family experience.

What is a Scottish Summer Like?

Posted on Sep 23, 2016 by Meike van Krimpen

Summer in Scotland

Although the weather in Scotland can become glorious as early as the end of April, summer does not really kick-off till June when the weather is consistently mild for the next four months. We’d be lying if we said that Scottish summers are all warmth and sunshine, they’re not. But they’re also not wet and cold like people think. […]
