Selected Trips

    From the UK


    Travel by Train

    All of our guided group trips begin and end at a train station – the majority beginning in Inverness, Mallaig, Aviemore or Fort William. All of these stations are easily reached by train from Glasgow or Edinburgh.

    When travelling from Glasgow, be sure to check if your train departs from Queen Street Station or Central Station, as they are a 15-minute walk apart. For trips that start at Penrith Station in England, the station is well-served from Edinburgh, Glasgow and London.

    While it is normally possible to buy train tickets on your day of travel, they are often significantly more expensive compared to when you book the same tickets in advance. If you wish to bring your bike with you, it must be booked ahead of time. You may do this at the same time as when you book online or by calling 08457 550 033 from within the UK, or 0044 1752 675 670 outwith the UK.

    Travel by Bus

    It is also possible to travel to the start points of our trips by bus. Less expensive, and with stations adjacent or close to train stations, they are a convenient and affordable means of travel. For bus timetables, costs and reservations, follow these links:


    Travel by Car

    If you choose to travel by car, you will find details of long-stay parking options in your trip dossier. If you require car hire, then Discover Cars offer a means of comparing, booking and saving on rental cars across the UK. For help planning your route to Scotland, check out the AA website here: www.theaa.com.

    Travel by Plane

    If you are flying to Scotland, then Inverness Airport is the most convenient for all of our trips which begin in the Highlands. Inverness Airport is located 10 miles east of the city centre and can be reached by bus or taxi.

    The below services are great for booking and comparing flights:

    in your own words

    My trip to Shetland met and exceeded all my expectations as my earlier trips with Wilderness Scotland have.
    The advantage of such beautiful places is added to by W.S.'s commitment and expertise.
