    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
    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...

    £399
    excluding flights
    Too many memorable parts to number! We loved Iona (everything about it except the weather!), Colonsay was beautiful, remote and atmospheric, the Jacobite steam train was great fun, The Sleat peninsula on Skye stunning. The hotels were excellent with wonderful food and accommodation for the most part. (more)Graham Wigmore
    Best bit: Experiencing the islands, each one has an individual personality. (more)Brid Burke

    £150
    excluding flights
    Memorable parts? The location was superb with amazing views overlooking the glen. We learned fascinating traditional skills, collecting lichens and bracken fronds from the woods and making up a wide range of natural dyes, using open wood fires. 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

    Memorable parts? Walking on snow at the top of Cairn Gorm mountain in July at a day time temperature of 28 degrees! Tips?

    Really enjoyed visiting the cairns of Coll in sunlight after a rather wet and miserable crossing . Thrilled to see, albeit a small, basking shark close up. (more)Linda Harvey
    The most memorable part of the holiday was the surveys trip ... seeing Minke whales and basking sharks on such a beautiful day - I will remember this for many years to come. (more)John Eversfield

    £235
    excluding flights
    There are so many positive things to say about this course – the supportive leader, the fantastic home made food, the beautiful highland scenery…but the happiest memories for me are of the people I met. (more)Kim Naylor-Vane
    The highlight was seeing scotland for the first time, learning new skills, enjoying the company. The satisfaction of getting to the top of 2 munros. (more)Harjit Mahl
    We had a great time and felt we learned loads about navigation and being out in the hills in general. Best thing for me was increased confidence. I now feel in being able to venture out into the hills and find my way. (more)Heather Martin
    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? Very good, maybe not an experience I want to repeat but fulfilling to do once. (more)Dan Smith

    From
    £21
    per person per night
    Memorable parts? The hospitality shown by the hosts Rebecca and Andy, who welcome you warmly into their home. The meals were fabulous and the packed lunches the best yet. Tips? Stay longer than we did, do more walking than we did, it will be worth it. Local benefits? Yes - we walked into Aviemore, and took the local steam train back, had a drink in the local pub, bought goodies from the local store and visited a nearby village tearoom. Overall rating? Excellent,... (more)Stephen Brown

    Exceeded my expectations by far! An amazing holiday for anyone with an interest in history, archaeology, food and agriculture. (more)Alexandra Young
    The most memorable and exciting part of the holiday was drinking nettle beer as the sun went down on the Saturday night. We'd had a busy day digging, foraging and cooking, so seeing it all come together at the end of the day with a crackling fire and that beautiful view of the valley below was truly memorable.
