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 Islands
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: Uists, Barra and Mingulay
I am recommending it to everyone! My Wilderness Scotland trip has literally changed my life. Just as I was about to lower the bar on my life expectations, Mark Cox and Wilderness Scotland came along and motivated me to raise the bar instead. Next time I come back I'm headed to Harris and Lewis. Thank you all!

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.
