Customer Kudos

Every client receives a feedback survey when they return from their guided, self guided or tailor made holiday with us.

Once completed the review is published on our website just as soon as our database updates. The little touches and details are important to us and where issues are raised we make positive changes to our trips to improve your experience.

That's why we read each of our client's reviews and although we don't respond to all of them, if it's glowing feedback then we get the satisfaction of helping to make your holidays truly memorable.

Road Cycling - Outer Hebrides
It has long been a dream of mine to visit the Western Isles, I have been really looking forward to it for weeks and even then it still surpassed all expectation. From the professionalism and support of your team, to the friendliness of the people we met on the islands, my fabulous holiday companions, the spectacular beauty of the Islands, my sore bum..... all make this holiday an experience that I wont forget.

Wildlife Adventures - The Shetland Isles
I have had two holidays with Wilderness Scotland, and each of them has exceeded expectations. I have also recommended you to two people who have come on your holidays. Your trips are well organised, well structured, pack in variety, and your guides combine a rare combination of people skills and technical expertise.

Wilderness Walking - Wilds of Assynt
Wilderness Scotland is the best. I chose it by chance on the Web, and as the trip went on, I was more and more convinced that I had lucked into an outstanding organization--well orchestrated, high quality, wonderful people.
