Insider Experiences

Getting under the skin of Scotland

Discover some of the unique Insider experiences we love to create for clients when travelling with us on a bespoke or tailor made adventure in Scotland.

We produced a short film series called Insider’s Scotland which explores some of our favourite places and people across the Highlands and Islands. These short films give an insight into how and why we like to help our guests get under the skin of Scotland.

 

Episode 1 - Foodie Culture on Skye

For the first episode in our new Insider video series we travelled to the beautiful Isle of Skye. One of Scotland’s most popular tourism spots in the summer months, the Isle of Skye is also home to a rich culture of incredible local produce and exquisite foodie experiences. We met local characters such as michelin-starred chefs, foraging experts, local fishermen and deerhunters who all share a passion for their island and the quality of food they can give to visitors.

Episode 2 - Voices of Edinburgh

Episode 2 in our Insider’s video series involved a different take on Scotland’s mesmerising capital city of Edinburgh. It feels like a lot of Edinburgh’s visitors experience a side of the city that sits at the very front of collective consciousness, such as the fairytale castle, winding cobbled streets and alleys and a smorgasbord of tartan-fied hospitality. So in this video we wanted to connect to a side of Edinburgh that not everyone stumbles across. We meet a local tour guide whose passion for Edinburgh’s bloody and rich history brings its buildings and sights to life. We meet a kiltmaker whose passion for bringing Scotland’s national dress into the 21st century has reached customers all over the world. We also meet the concierge at Edinburgh’s most prestigious and iconic hotel, the Balmoral, which sits at the very heart of this amazing city.

Episode 3 - The Wilderness Guide

Our guiding team live and breathe Scotland! Many might think that leading a group to Scotland’s most beautiful places would be the most simple job in the world. In the third episode of our Insider’s video series we spend some time with one of Wilderness Scotland’s senior guiding team.  Learn from Tim Willis how he approaches guiding across the Highlands and Islands.
