    The Bottom Line

    The Bottom Line

    This trip exceeded my expectations. I had an incredible time. It's clear Wilderness Scotland takes a lot of care and thought when creating these trips. Our guide Emmy was a star, the lodge was lovely, meals were so tasty, and the hikes and wild swimming were so much fun! I cannot wait for my next Wilderness adventure.

    The Bottom Line

    The Bottom Line

    I Had a wonderful time. Everything was very well organised, you didn't have to worry about anything. The accommodation, which we had all to ourselves as a group, was fantastic and the food was delicious. The hosts have created a beautiful place surrounded by nature. Emy as our tour guide organised the whole day from morning to bedtime. The days and evenings were varied and entertaining. She paid attention to each individual in the group and made all activities flexible. Emy rests within herself and conveys the enthusiasm she has for the environment, nature, landscape and walking. There were other people who shared their passion with us (e.g. wild swimming) - thank you to everyone involved. You were very inspiring!
