Wildlife sailing holiday in Scotland
From
£750
excluding flights
Our encounter with a big group of white-beaked dolphins jumping playfully and the beautiful beaches and peaks of the islands. Barra and Canna were amazing and the red sunset in Muck was unforgettable. (more)Maria Frantzi
The whole experience was wonderful, particularly enjoyed the dinghy trip round the Burnt Islands reserve where we were treated with great views of the Common Seal colony. Also enjoyed discovering another world through the microscope investigating plankton samples. (more)Andrew Swales
No light pollution and clear skies allowed for spectacular stargazing. As an added bonus we got to collect and view plankton under the microscope, a truly unique experience. (more)Catherine Egginton
Whisky and wildlife sailing holiday in Scotland
From
£1,200
excluding flights
Memorable parts? Being "on the water" was exhilarating! When the weather was good, it was glorious, and when the weather was stormy, it was exciting. Tips? Miminize luggage. Storage space is modest. Layers are necessary. Don't forget the rain gear. Be flexible. Much of the itinerary is dictated by weather and tides. The vacation providers office staff are very kind to help with arrangements. Try to take time before/after the cruise to visit Oban and Tobermory. Lovely towns. Local... (more)Sue Ellen Christensen
St Kilda & the Outer Hebrides wildlife cruise, Scotland
From
£1,995
excluding flights
Memorable parts? Hard to chose but probably the time we spent on the Shiants Tips? It's casual and great fun. Local benefits? Spending tourist dollars always helps the economy of these remote communities. As well as seeing superb scenery, we learnt a lot about indigenous wildlife, and the need for conservation to enable the return of bird species. A good example was the successful rat eradication program from the Shiants. This increased our understanding of the issues... (more)Carolyn Coffey

From
£677

Getting up some of the most beautiful mountains in the region, with a great bunch of people. Learning how to do an ice axe arrest whilst sliding down a slope was the best fun! (more)Sarah Daly
The sense of achievement after pushing my boundaries when I climbed out of the Corrie with ice axe and crampons; not being keen on heights - the instructor was so encouraging and supportive that I faced my fears and got on with it! (more)Sue Waton
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
Traditional crafts vacation in Scotland
From
£895
excluding flights
Rosie worked tirelessly to make it the perfect vacation, from preparing the fleece, collecting the plants used in the dying, the dying itself, and of course, carding and spinning the wool. She and Alex made delicious, healthy meals and made sure the experience went smoothly. (more)Celia Winkler
Going through the whole process of watching the sheep being sheared, working with the fleece, gathering plants to dye with, creating amazing colours and then using them to create my felted wall hanging. (more)Kathy Lovatt
The experience was incredible, better than we imagined. It was magical to work with all the natural materials in such a beautiful setting. Ten out of ten. (more)Robin Lentz

Had a fantastic experience onboard St. Hilda. Simon and Louise were perfect hosts and made our trip magical. The food was super and plentiful, the weather caused some changes to be ade to our plan but this did not detract from a marvellous vacation. (more)Michael Conn
The most memorable parts was the good views and the food. (more)Ann Lorraine Wright
South Argyll wildlife cruises in Scotland
From
£1,450
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
Skye and the Small Isles sailing vacation
From
£900
excluding flights
Memorable parts? I was very happy that we found the puffins rock (Dún Mòr) on Sanday. With another traveler I surrounded the peninsula with the help of a map with only a few details like some walls, the church and the silhouette of the island - no paths! But the puffins were exactly where they had been indicated on the map, and we had a wonderful, long walk. But I also enjoyed the boat trips - plenty of time to watch the sea, the sky, the birds, the seals, even some dolphins... Tips? Enjoy... (more)Brigitte Horlitz

Lands End To John O'Groats biking trip
From
£1,845
excluding flights
Memorable parts? There were so many memorable times. The variety and beauty of our wonderful country was a continuing delight. The views and feeling of achievement after climbing the Cross of Greet, The Lecht, The Forest of Bowland, Glenshee and many other hills were unforgettable. In contrast the feeling of freedom freewheeling down from these heights was wonderful. But apart from the actual cycling the camaraderie and mutual support which grew in the group and with our leaders, Nick... (more)Rob Nutting

This was a wonderful experience, all of the staff have an excellent approach to customer service. They are extremely competent in their chosen areas of expertise, they encourage you to do your best and never push you to go too far. The group activities are skilfully tailored to meet the skills and abilities of the individuals taking part. (more)Willie McCafferty
Excellent - the staff could not do enough to help, and as a beginner on most activities, there was enough to do. The activities were also suitable for a range of ages and abilities. (more)Jamie Stevenson
Very, very good. We had a great time as a family and met another lovely family with children of similar ages also some lovely people there for kayaking. Very sociable. Family friendly atmosphere. Fabulous staff. (more)Marian Carton-Sheehy

Lake District family activity vacation
From
£540
excluding flights
It was truly amazing and we will definitely be going again....The outdoor activities team were very knowledgeable about the area so we learned lots about the history of the place, and the impact of their work. They were also great at educating the children (and adults) about nature and doing things naturally which we have carried with us. (more)Sandra Hilton
Very enjoyable and offered both something for adults and children. Although you were with a group for activities you could still do your own thing in the evening which meant that it still felt like an independent vacation. (more)Matthew Hawkins
We had a great guide for the week - Simon. Also Ghyll scrambling and rock climbing with the whole family (children from 4 to 19) was special...Great fun. (more)Michele Oliver

From
£229

Memorable parts? I really enjoyed the surfing under really bad weather conditions, so much fun! Tips?

I guess we contributed financially Overall rating? Fantastic balance between activities and relaxing time (more)Sol Arigos
Yorkshire guided hiking vacation, The Prior Richard Way
From
£395
excluding flights
Memorable parts? The beautiful Lock House in Boroughbridge and the last day of walking including. Fountains Abbey was the best part because of the landscape being more interesting. Tips? Bring your best walking shoes. There is a lot of walking on asfalt, but still you need waterproof shoes because of the many crossings of fields. Local benefits? Yes, only small local companies were visited during our walk. Overall rating? Tony and Rachel took really good care of us... (more)Hilde and Ingebrigt Kirkvold
