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 Islands
Wilderness Scotland provided a world class walking vacation. It was a wonderful combination of location and attention to details. Remember the Orkneys have been populated since neolithic times. There was a reason! It is a land of incredible beauty. However a trip is not just about the location. Wilderness Scotland handled all the travel details without flaw. We were met on time, made all of our travel connections and had our many special requests all graciously honoured.

Mountain Biking - The Hebridean Trail
My friends said "How Much?!" for a week in Scotland. I came home thinking what an absolute bargain the trip was. I'm already thinking about booking my next trip to the Hebrides or maybe a bigger challenge, the coast to coast or sea kayaking. Whichever I will be back to Scotland soon.

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.

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.
