Wilderness Walking - Outer Hebrides & Skye

Wilderness Walking - Outer Hebrides & Skye
I first heard about Wilderness Scotland when I read National Geographic Traveler's "Trips of a Lifetime" issue a couple of years ago - the trip to Skye and the Hebrides jumped off the page at me, as I have some Scottish roots, through a grandmother born there, and my husband and I did a few days of traveling in Scotland a number of years ago. After using your excellent site to determine that, yes, we would be capable of one of the walking tours, and delaying for a couple of years, I was excited to finally book and now that's it's over, even more excited about the experience we both had. Truly it was the trip of a lifetime - but we hope to have more! Thank you.

Wilderness Walking - The Knoydart Peninsula
This trip has been an invaluable experience, and it has certainly allowed me to recharge my batteries until next summer, and possibly another trip with Wilderness Scotland.
