Wilderness Scotland is an award-winning adventure travel and ecotourism company. We specialise in offering an inspiring range of guided, self-guided and customised adventure holidays in the most remote and beautiful regions of the Highlands and Islands of Scotland.

Our range of Wildlife Tours blend some of Scottish nature’s great events in the more incredible locations, with expert guides so you become part of the action. Our trips are more active than a ‘normal’ wildlife tour, so although time will be spent in vehicles and watching from choice vantage points, expect a full immersion into Scotland's landscapes with walking, sea kayaking and boat trips.

Wilderness Scotland’s Walking Group Trips offer all grades of walking from easy trails through to more challenging terrain and up to some of Scotland’s most beautiful peaks. We also run Self-Guided Long-Distance Trails in Scotland, Ireland and England.

On our Mountain Bike Holidays you get to explore deep into areas that are seldom visited, and on amazing trails that are rarely ridden. Our tours are some of the most iconic in Europe and we have spent years refining our various routes so that you have the best possible experience.

Superb scenery, quiet highland roads, group camaraderie and great hospitality are what you can expect on our Road Cycling Tours. As well as small group holidays we also offer different levels of Self-Guided Cycling Holidays. Cycling at your own pace, you’ll enjoy the freedom to speed up or slow down according to your preferences, venture off to any of the many fascinating stops along the way or stop to get the perfect photo, without feeling like you’re on someone else’s schedule.

Nothing quite beats the thrill of exploring from the water. Discover unique and beautiful vantage points whilst paddling through tranquil gorges on our Canoeing Holidays and along white sand beaches on our Sea Kayaking Holidays. Wilderness Scotland also offers two inspiring Sailing Holidays, a great way to explore Scotland’s wild coastline and diverse islands.

Our Guided Photography Trips are designed to help you discover Scotland’s wild places and wild light. Whether you are looking to develop your skills or are already a seasoned photographer you’ll be able to enjoy the stunning Highlands and Islands in the company of an expert photography guide.

Immerse yourself in the magic of Scottish winter with our Winter Holidays, featuring winter walking and private ski breaks. Breathe in the crisp air, take in the sights of iconic wildlife against the snow and marvel in the exhilaration of speed if you take to the slopes. All while relaxing in the knowledge that cosy comfort awaits at the end of your day.

Alternatively, travel at your own pace on one of our Self-Drive Holidays. Suitable for families, couples and groups of friends, the varied activities on these trips will be tailored to your interests and preference, making them accessible to all ages and levels of experience. With the option to upgrade accommodation and add on extra days and activities, you are sure to find your perfect adventure.

We'd also love the opportunity to use our knowledge, expertise and experience to design and deliver the perfect and unique holiday experience for you. Our Custom Holiday Service caters for private groups of all sizes and budgets to enjoy a bespoke holiday in the Highlands and Islands of Scotland. We’ll design an innovative itinerary for you, featuring superb accommodation, activities and experiences.

We are firmly committed to responsible tourism and all of our tours reflect that commitment. Our holidays are purposefully designed to provide a visitor experience that maximises the positive benefits of tourism while minimising any negative impacts.
