This trip was purchased in 2019 and needed to be rebooked from 2020 to 2021 and finally to 2022. Many emails and phone calls occurred during this time - everyone at Wilderness Scotland was very kind, understanding, and, most importantly, accommodating! Everyone was professional and very helpful. Each time we rescheduled, we were more excited to make the trip.
The venues, lodging, and food were all top-notch! No details were left unplanned, and our guide, Martin Tull, ensured that everyone could enjoy the pace of the day. My favorite hike was across the Quiraing, where the scenery was stunning, and I enjoyed learning the history of its creation. We also enjoyed the excursions: Harris Gin, a visit to a local weaver for Harris Tweed, and stops at various art galleries were very enjoyable.
Accommodation & Food
We stayed in two boutique hotels, which both exceeded my expectations. The rooms were very comfortable, pleasant, and inviting. I felt guilty entering after hiking in muddy and wet conditions. Perhaps having somewhere to hang our wet things would have been helpful.
Our guide was Martin T. He did a great job managing the needs of the individual guests while keeping the full group in mind. I appreciated his individual attention in getting to know each of us as well as his kindness to those who needed extra help. We especially enjoyed the history he shared about the various locations we visited. We felt very confident in his ability and enjoyed his humor very much!
The Bottom Line
Outstanding experience! From visiting stunning beaches, completing amazing cliffside hikes, and enjoying delectable meals - each new day is another exciting adventure!
