I am reborn! Simply the best holiday I have ever been on
Some great stories to tell the grandchildren. Would recommend to a friend
Very enjoyable
It was OK
A bit disappointing really
Isle of Mull and west coast of Scotland cruise
From
£1,866
excluding flights
Memorable parts? The whole of our holiday was wonderful. The crew were all great, friendly and so helpful. The food was delicious every meal, and plentiful too! The cruise was the best way to see some of Scotland’s beautiful scenery and wildlife. The only fault, we wished it didn't have to end! Tips? Don't forget your binoculars. Sensible shoes and a waterproof for when up on deck and the weather damp. Local benefits? I am not sure about these things as we didn't buy any... (more)julie Clease
Skye and the Inner Hebrides cruise, Scotland
From
£2,095
excluding flights
The crew were marvellous, and nothing was too much trouble, with a number of elderly passengers on our cruise, all was taken in their stride. (more)Gerald Peppiatt
We were a small and delightful group. The boat was cozy and comfortable, the landscapes and cloudscapes, sublime; and the day trips and hikes, especially our visit to Iona and its sacred and ancient abbey were vitamin C for the spirit. (more)Patricia Knowles
Wildlife sailing holiday in Scotland
From
£690

Scotland island holiday in the Inner Hebrides
From
£399

Too many memorable parts to number!

Wildlife holiday in the Isle of Mull, Scotland
From

Short break cruise in Scotland, Western Isles
From
£690
excluding flights
Memorable parts? The stunning scenery and peaceful moorings. The wildlife especially the seals and beautiful shoals of jellyfish floating like alien creatures in a calm sea. The first ever fish caught by one of our party - a splendid mackerel! The delicious food and good company of Michael and Colette. The successful descent into the dinghy of a nervous member of our party - if she can do it with Michael's patient help anyone can. Raising and lowering the anchor - tying knots and rope throwing...

South Argyll wildlife cruises in Scotland
From
£1,320
excluding flights
Memorable parts? The weather was amazing but even more so were the wonderful crew - Steve, our chef - so inventive and creative. He went out of his way to make sure we all had food we loved, but also stretched our taste buds in the way he cooked and displayed the dishes. Iain our skipper made sure all needs were catered for. For example I made an off-the- cuff remark about another hook in my cabin. When I came back from my walk there it was! Another passenger had difficulty walking- he took... (more)Etta Geras

A really terrific week which we will always remember (along with how to tie a bowline). Two of my colleagues at work have already expressed interest! (more)Helen Newton
Scotland wildlife cruise, marine biology
From
£690
excluding flights
Memorable parts? I loved the whole atmosphere of being on the St Hilda, learning about how to sail a boat and discovering the wildlife around us. Sailing towards Arran under the blue sky was absolutely fantastic. Also, fishing for our dinner and catching lobster and crabs in our lobster pot was so exciting! Colette and Michael looked after us so well - they were the perfect hosts! And Colette cooks the most delicious meals! Tips? Remember taking the right gear so you can enjoy your... (more)N.Z
Scotland island hopping holiday, car free
From
£835
excluding flights
Memorable parts? Traveling without a car made us travel with less, slow down, and engage more with people around us. So we had a wonderful time meeting people from Scotland and all over, which was great. Tips? Recognize that you'll spend a bit more time getting between places than you otherwise might, so let go of the rush to "get there". And pack light. Local benefits? We were in small hotels except for the extra nights we added in cities, and staying in small towns. So... (more)Mark Gurvis

We dyed fleeces and fabric, mixing our colours, which were astonishingly vibrant and ready to take on to the next step for spinning or felting. Rosie and her family were very welcoming and gave us wonderful outdoor lunches. Tips? Bring sensible... (more)Annie Hibberd

Learning the techniques including how to walk on ice using Crampons, learning how to navigate in whiteout conditions and recovery procedures after a fall using ice axes. Really good group atmosphere. (more)Matthieu Pinel
Hiking holidays in Scotland
From
£1,010
excluding flights
Memorable parts? The walking, the food, and Rebecca and Andy's hospitality. Local benefits? Andy and Rebecca have tried really hard to create a B&B which offers a very comfortable experience but yet limits the environmental impact. Everything that can be recycled or reused is, but yet at the same time this doesn’t effect the quality of the service offered and I feel this certainly adds to the whole experience and ambience of the lodge. Overall rating? An excellent holiday,... (more)Ruth Seward

A very enjoyable holiday particularly for the children who have not stopped talking about it yet...

The enthusiasm with which they approached every new challenge and the knowledge that they gained is priceless. (more)Frank White

Fantastic. I was lucky to have four other great women in the holiday too, but Rosie and Joanie made it wonderful. When ever I talk about my week with them I literally find my shoulders dropping and my speech slowing down, and the glow returning. (more)Lara Gisborne
Snowhole expedition, Scotland
From
£480
excluding flights
Memorable parts? Learning to self-arrest with an ice-axe - sliding head first and face down on an icy slope! Tips? Bring lots of spare gloves. Local benefits? Yes, it provides local employment and the accommodation was as sustainable as possible and the activities cause no lasting impact. Overall rating?

Meeting a wide range of like minded people. Spending a lovely sunny day in an ancient Scottish forest counting Scottish pine trees....wow...a renewed love for my country. (more)Liz Scott
Come the end of the week we were all a little tired from the work, but also very proud of what we had done. Driving back to the lodge we came across a stunning natural pool and waterfall which we just could not resist and so dived (almost) right in and spent time relaxing among new friends. That and constantly swimming to try and stay warm! (more)Andrew Silander

Scottish Highlands holiday, wildlife & wellbeing
From
£750
excluding flights
Memorable parts? The most memorable part of the holiday was during dolphin-watching, when a baby dolphin with it’s' mother, dived in and out of the water, around both sides of our boat. They swam very close to us. Sarah, who steered the boat, knew the sea area near Cromarty and the Black Isle extremely well. She gave us an informative and exhilarating boat journey. Tips? This is a bespoke holiday so discuss with Deborah, the marine biologist, exactly what you would like to experience.... (more)Manjinder Jagdev
