Absolutely no problem booking, and very friendly staff when I called to pay.
Another brilliant holiday with Wilderness Scotland. Howard and Steph were excellent guides, felt extremely safe in their hands, very knowledgable, not only about kayaking but also about the area and wildlife. Very friendly and welcoming too, and good company. All of our hotels were excellent, as was the food. Loved the whole experience once again and was very sad when it was finished.
Accommodation & Food
Really loved the hotel at Shieldaig, really comfortable, cosy, and a great place to relax at the end of the day. Facilities in your room were excellent, as was use of the drying room and all of our meals there were great.
The Plockton Inn was also very comfortable and spacious with great food and the pub attached was made full use of. Lack of a drying room meant your room was swamped with wet gear that didn't really dry, but it was extremely comfortable place to stay otherwise.
Both locations were great. Very picturesque and added to the holiday.
Howard and Steph, our guides, were totally brilliant. Very knowledgable, welcoming, and learnt loads from both of them. They were attentive and excellent company, plus good fun and part of the group. Always felt in safe hands, very good at guaging the abilities and needs of everyone in the group, worked really hard at ensuring everyone felt at home and could expand their kayaking experience. Really interesting knowledge of the area and willing to share their experience. The Wilderness Scotland guides have always been excellent.
The Bottom Line
Kayaking in this beautiful part of Scotland is a very special experience. The scenery is breathtaking, but seeing it from the water, so close to wildlife and nature is a fantastic thing to do, as well as the achievement and improving your skills.
Wilderness Scotland are excellent (this was my 2nd trip with them), our accommodation was great, they certainly feed you well, but their biggest asset is their guides and booking staff. Everyone from start to finish is completely brilliant. I could not thank the guides enough for such a great holiday. So glad I started this kayaking adventure, hopefully will get to do more.
