Wilderness Scotland


If whiskey and kilts come to mind when you think of Scotland, this outfitter will have you thinking again. Ski touring in Cairngorms National Park, whitewater canoeing the River Spey, and mountain biking from coast to coast are just a few of the adventures Wilderness Scotland embarks on. When director Myles Farnbank personally guides sea kayaking and walking trips, he incorporates his love of local wild food into his campfire cooking. If you're interested in exploring on your own, the company arranges self-guided treks—either with camping or hotel stays.

Highlights: Sea kayaking and sailing in the Hebrides, mountain biking in the Highlands
