    Finding Your Way

    Scotland has a strong network of road, rail and air links which makes travelling to our beautiful country simple and convenient. Once you have arrived, public transport connections make getting around easy. All our guided group trips begin and end at a train station or ferry terminal, which means arriving at the start point of any adventure straightforward and stress-free.

    We believe in responsible and sustainable travel, which is why all our itineraries are designed to minimalise their carbon footprint, support local communities, and protect the wild places we visit. In order to enable environmentally friendly travel choices we are partnered with companies that place the well-being of our planet at the heart of what they do. As adventurers, we can travel more sustainably by making well-informed choices, flying less, staying longer, and making our journeys count once we arrive.

    Choosing a trip with Wilderness Scotland means choosing a company that is fully committed to sustainable travel in a meaningful and impactful way.

    Arriving by Train Read More

    The majority of our guided group trips begin and end at a train station with arrival and departure times planned around the train timetables where possible. There are regular trains on different lines throughout the day, but be aware that trains are less frequent on Sundays and bank holidays.

    While it is normally possible to buy train tickets on your day of travel, it is usually more cost-effective to buy tickets in advance. If you wish to bring your bike on the train, it must be booked ahead of time.


    For a premium experience, we are partnered with the Caledonian Sleeper: an overnight train service which connects London to Glasgow, Edinburgh, Inverness, Fort William and Aberdeen. If you book a trip with Wilderness, you’ll receive a 15% discount code in your confirmation email which is valid for double, club and classic rooms.
