This was a fantastic holiday for us and the whole family hugely enjoyed our time in Scotland. Both the boys said it was one of their best trips and they would love to do it again and spend more time in Scotland. So we will definitely be looking into doing some more travels to Scotland some time! And I know where to come as Wilderness did a great job in sorting everything out for us including restaurant bookings - it was a brilliant, responsive and tailored service and just the perfect travel solution when we all needed a holiday and had little time to look into things ourselves.
