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.

Wildlife Adventures - The Shetland Isles
I have had two holidays with Wilderness Scotland, and each of them has exceeded expectations. I have also recommended you to two people who have come on your holidays. Your trips are well organised, well structured, pack in variety, and your guides combine a rare combination of people skills and technical expertise.

Winter Highlands - North West
Brilliant holiday. It was such a pleasure to have three days to soak up the wonderful views of mountains and sea, and to see the northern lights as bonus!
