Wilderness Walking - Autumn Highlands
It was a lovely walk in the woods in the season of mist and mellow fruitfulness. Where are the songs of Spring? Ay, where are they? Think not of them, thou hast thy music too.

I have always recommended Wilderness Scotland to everyone with the proviso that its isn't cheap but good value and that you have to...walk...in...Scotland. Unfortunately its the last part that puts people off. I honestly don't think people believed me when I said that we had fantastic sunshine all last week in Orkney. I shan't climb off my soapbox - that's their problem!

First tour with Wilderness Scotland and not the last! I have already booked another tour for next year! Andy set the bar high so might be difficult to have the same or beat it (no pressure!) The group was also wonderful, with Andy they surely made that tour even more special. Loved everything about this tour and highly recommend it to all nature, wilderness lovers and walkers!

This trip has changed the way I want to travel. I now want to have a nightly (comfortable) accommodation base and do daily trips/ walks out from there each day. Wilderness Scotland were wonderful, covered the basics of registering for a place without being overly beauractic and all further enquiries were handled promptly.

We think the greatest compliment we can give Wilderness Scotland is that we are ready to take another trip and we just got back yesterday! To be able to hike the trails of the Highlands, learning about Scotland and challenging ourselves physically is our idea of a great holiday. Wilderness Scotland and its excellent guide, Tim Willis, created a hiking experience that will forever bring us great memories!

Memorable trip (my 3rd). Always very reliable. However, I wish you had an "economy" version for those who do not need a luxury hotel. This includes myself and most of my friends. I would then come more often. The "snore tax" for a single room is rather hefty! (I understand why)

If you don’t like the weather, wait 5 minutes. Although this cliche raises a smile, it can also give a slither of insight when planning what to wear hiking in Scotland during summer. We have been taking folk on hiking holidays in Scotland for over 16 years. Our combined hiking experience amongst the team must […]

Our guided walking holidays and hiking tours are the ultimate way to see Scotland on two feet.

Choose from 18 different holidays and over 100 departure dates, across a mix of grades. You’re sure to find the ideal walking trip.

We base all our walking packages in small hotels, guest houses or Highland lodges.

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.

Walking tours are available in the following locations:

Private Walking Tours

You can book each of the walking holidays listed above on a private basis. Private tours are ideal for getting your closest friends, family or colleagues together. Choose to book out any of the available and open departures dates on a private basis, only for your group.

Single Centre or Multi Centre Tours

Choose from walking tours that either go from point to point:

Like our guided West Highland Way and Speyside Way holidays.

If you prefer to base yourself in one or two locations, then choose one of our signature tours. The Knoydart Peninsula and Outer Hebrides and Skye walking trips.

We start our hikes from a central location which allows us to explore the surrounding landscape, wildlife and culture in detail.

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.
