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.

Wilderness Walking - The Orkney Isles
Can't wait to do another trip with Wilderness Scotland & will tell everyone I know to do the same. See previous comments for specific benefits. The only thing I could add is the small group sizes are a very clever move as this ensured the service we received was highly personalised. We felt very well looked after & were never rushed.

Wilderness Walking - Outer Hebrides & Skye
Wilderness Scotland is by far the best and most professional hiking experience we have ever had. I would recommend them above any other guided hiking firm we have ever used in over 8 years of doing guided hikes in Ireland, France, Spain and Scotland.

Sea Kayaking - Introduction Course
The Intro to Sea Kayaking course is a brilliant way to combine a holiday with learning a new skill - and in amazing scenery. We also had seals, sea eagles and great local food options! Highly recommended.

Cairngorms and Central Highlands

  • Cairngorms and Central Highlands
    The Cairngorms are Britain’s largest mountain massif and are part of the Grampian Mountains, which are situated in the North-East Highlands of Scotland. It has a vast upland area, known as the Cairngorm plateau, which is arctic in character and contains four peaks over 4,000 feet. Unsurprisingly, it is a great place for walking holidays, both in summer and in winter.

 

The Cairngorms include some of Scotland’s highest mountains amidst and massive plateau which offers some fantastic hill-walking and mountaineering all year round. Within the national park are some stunning glens, forests and lochs, interlinked by forest trails which are a walker or mountain bikers dream. The Great Glen cuts across the heart of Scotland offering paddling across Loch Ness and fantastic walking trails amidst stunning forests and glens.
