      Wildlife Holidays in Scotland

      Our wildlife holidays are a little bit different from others you may have seen or joined. While we do spend some time in hides or in vehicles, our trips are more active than a ‘normal’ wildlife tour. The activities are easy and gentle but you can expect to experience delights such as coastal walks, sea kayaking with seals and boat trips to seek our Scotland’s larger marine wildlife.

      Return to Nature

      Our wildlife tours blend some of Scottish nature’s great events in the more incredible locations, with expert guides so you become part of the action.

      Using activities, we’re able to get closer to Scottish wildlife because our guides understand their behaviour and you’re out there experiencing Scotland, rather than sitting in a hide waiting for the wildlife to come to you.

      This trip was quite simply excellent in every way - the knowledge and care provided by the guide, the trip contents and the accommodation. It was my second trip with Wilderness Scotland and the high quality was consistent.

      The Bottom Line

      I loved the trip. I hated the weather. The van was a little claustrophobic. People should be told to keep their spot for the day and then rotate so there's not so much yapping about who is going to sit where. :) I think WS did a great job.
