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.

North West Highlands

  • North West Highlands
    The North West Highlands is one of Scotland's most dramatic regions. Its' mountains are made from some of the oldest rock on the planet. Peaks rise steeply from deep glens with pristine lochs dividing the landscape. This makes the area a fantastic place for wild walking and canoe adventures.

 

An ancient and primeval landscape which offers dramatic peaks made of Torridonian sandstone, wooded glens and intricate lochs.

The North West Highlands has been recognised for its wild natural beauty and has recently been awarded UNESCO endorsed European Geopark status in recognition of its outstanding geology and landscape.

This area is a real favourite for canoeists, walkers and kayakers seeking to step out into the wilderness.
