      Quality Assured

      To ensure a high level of comfort and friendly service, we check the accommodation you stay in. It is generally 3-4 star as standard and offers a high level of comfort and friendly service. Our luxury walking holidays also feature stays at 5 star hotels.

      Many of our tours are all inclusive walking holidays. You will enjoy daily walks and hikes, led by our expert guides and you’ll only carry with you what you need for the day.

      Our group tours are ideal for single or solo travellers as you get the chance to join like-minded people, you can also book any of our holidays on a private basis, only for your group of closest friends, family or colleagues.

      Luxury Walking Holidays

      Do you prefer 5 Star accommodation in private lodges and hotels? If so, our Luxury Walking tours might be more suitable. Their remote locations allow us to explore parts of Scotland that many rarely see.

      Our luxury walking trips include the North Highland Coast, a trip based in a stunning Highland lodge, the epitome of Highland Hygge. Or the Glencoe and the Highlands tour, based at two of the highest rated hidden gem hotels in Scotland.

      Excellent trip. When we were researching outfitters for hiking in Scotland, two friends gave Wilderness Scotland high marks as well so it was clear to us which outfitter we should select. We were not disappointed.

      5th trip with WS which probably says it all. Was a lovely group with a great guide in Gill. Look forward to the next one in 2019 TEAM WILDERNESS RESPONSE Thanks as always for your great feedback. We're always delighted when people return to Scotland with us and we hope there are lots more adventures for us to enjoy together. This is why we love doing what we do!

      Speak to an Expert

      “As a 5 Star tour operator this is how we see customer service.
      For example, we can’t say we will get back to you within 3 hours because sometimes we won’t and we can’t say we endeavour to get back to you as soon as possible, because that’s just wishy washy and everyone says that.
      Great customer service isn’t tangible.
      It’s tone of voice, and relationship building.
      And going that wee bit further to make someone’s day and it can’t be quantified.
      It’s how we make you feel…
      and we feel that it’s the following things that go towards making the difference between a holiday, and an amazing, memorable experience.
