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 - Wilds of Assynt
Assynt is a wonderful area of wild unspoiled country, with a great combination of remote mountains and coastal scenery. The trip is well paced, with plenty of variety and opportunity to explore the range of scenery. The accommodation and food all add to a most enjoyable holiday. I particularly like the "minimum impact" ethos of "Wilderness Scotland" which makes it a first choice for exploring wild areas of Scotland.

Outer Hebrides and St Kilda

  • Outer Hebrides and St Kilda
    Luskentyre Beach on Harris, Outer Hebrides. Wonderful beaches, the largest sand dunes in Europe and azure blue seas.

 

The Outer Hebrides, also known as the Western Isles, are one of Scotland’s best kept secrets for active travel, such as walking, hiking, road cycling and mountain biking.

There is no better place to experience the combination of pristine scenery, intriguing culture and a way of life which doesn’t seem to have been caught up in the hustle and bustle of the 21st century.

A landscape of such outstanding beauty merges with megalithic history in a place where English is the second language. Together this makes a cultural omelette on the western edge of Europe that is a firm favourite with our travellers. In recognition of these outstanding elements National Geographic included our Outer Hebrides and Skye walking trip in their Top 50 Tours of a Lifetime.

Recommended things to see and do on your Outer Hebrides holiday:

  • Explore the beauty of Luskentyre beach and many others – The Outer Hebrides is famous for its amazing beaches full of white sand and tropical turquoise waters
  • Visit the historic Standing stones of Callanish – An astonishing structure that predates Stonehenge by approximately 2,000 years
  • Watch Harris tweed being woven and treat yourself to a wonderful Hebridean souvenir
  • Hike to the scenic Eilean Glas Lighthouse located on the Isle of Scalpay – a location that could only be accessed by boat until a bridge was opened in 1997
  • Join us on Eriskay – the location of the renowned book and movies: Whisky Galore
  • Take a day boat trip to St Kilda – a once in a lifetime opportunity to visit a stunning UNESCO World Heritage site

The journey to St Kilda is not an easy one. However, for the adventurously-minded traveler, the remoteness, extraordinary scenery, human and natural history all contribute to make a visit to these islands unquestionably an experience of a lifetime. If you are interested in visiting St Kilda, we can arrange this as part of a tailor made trip.
