Wilderness Walking - Argyll & the Isles
Wilderness Scotland has created for me the perfect holiday. I had several to-do locations left on my list for Scotland and this trip covered them all with beautiful Islay, wild Jura, the exciting Corryvreckan Whirlpool, spectacular Dunadd, the history in the Kilmartin Glen, Kerrera and Gigha. The landscape is breathtaking. Each island is unique. I was able to relax and loved every day knowing the guide was taking care of the arrangements. I recommend Wilderness Scotland 100%.
