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.

Open Canoeing - North West Highlands
One of the best trips we've ever done. For me, perhaps the most inspirational moment was the shared sense of awe as we paddled across Loch Sionascaig with the amphitheatre of mountains around us on a brilliant day. Thank you Kirk, Laura and all the team.

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.

Sailing and Walking - Knoydart, Skye & The Small Isles
We were expecting a good trip ... maybe even a great one. What we experienced far exceeded our expectations. The entire Wilderness Scotland team should be very proud of what they are doing and the level of service they give to their customers.

West Highlands including Knoydart

  • West Highlands and Knoydart
    The Sound of Arisaig is one of the world’s top destinations for sea-kayaking. Its countless islands and skerries offer a wealth of hidden places to explore and are also home to an abundance of marine wildlife including seals, otters, dolphins, porpoises and even minke whales. One of our recent sea-kayaking groups recorded 26 otter sightings in 6 days!

This region covers a large area stretching from near Oban in the south to Kintail further north. At its heart is the wild Knoydart peninsula and the beautiful Sound of Arisaig coastline – two of our favourite places in Scotland.

This huge playground of wild Scottish land offers something for everyone. The mountains, valleys and coastlines are a walkers paradise. The turquoise water of the coast are perfect for sea kayaking. And the landscape and coastline combine to form the perfect home for Scotland’s most iconic wildlife species. 

Whether you want to walk, hike, sea kayak, sail or cycle, watch wildlife or work on your photography, there are few better places to do so than the West Highlands including Knoydart. A first trip to this beautiful region of the Scottish is rarely the last!
