We are a Scottish walking tour company specialising in walking holidays and cultural tours throughout the Scottish Highlands & Islands.
Our small group tours offer a personal and authentic experience of Scotland’s wild nature and landscapes. Our qualified local guides love to share their knowledge and passion while also looking after the practical arrangements so that you can relax and enjoy your trip. We champion responsible, sustainable travel, operating a ‘leave no trace’ policy while investing in local businesses and communities.
The company started in 2003 as Walk Wild Loch Lomond, providing walking day trips in the new National Park. Demand soon took the business to other areas of Scotland. We are now proud to offer a wide variety of carefully curated tours while maintaining our ‘small is beautiful’ ethos.
Antje, Walk Wild’s founder and a seasoned traveller, came to explore Scotland in the 1990s and fell in love with the wilderness paradise she discovered on the edge of Europe. She has been guiding in Scotland for over 25 years and is now supported by an enthusiastic team of Scotland-inspired professionals. We all share a love of people, nature and roaming outdoors – and a desire to give Walk Wild Scotland guests the best possible experience of our very special place.
We also offer guided tours in German. Read about our tours and holidays on our German website.
Our small international groups of no more than 8 guests are perfectly sized for you to share those amazing experiences and enjoy your holiday in a personal and relaxed ambience. We design versatile and authentic tours for discerning travellers who appreciate the comfort of a well-planned and interesting journey in the company of an expert guide. By staying small we provide the care, flexibility and spontaneity that make your holiday truly special.
We started out as a women only tour company back in the 1990s and we continue with great zest to offer special trips for women which include a more relaxed pace, time for tea, sharing stories and love for adventure. See our women’s tours
Taking time to ‘smell the heather’ is integral to our tours. Along the way, you’ll find there is more to landscapes than you might expect: ancient ruined settlements and mysterious stone circles are only some of the traces reflecting ways of life and traditions which are part of Scottish culture.
As our natural environments become more and more threatened by climate change and other human impacts and local communities fight for existence we are fully committed to running a sustainable tourism business in the most responsible way we can: walking inevitably connects with nature and our knowledgeable guides are keen to convey a deeper understanding of and respect for the environment. We work closely with small local businesses, craftspeople, weavers, artists, musicians, local naturalists and those who provide the most delicious local foods. It is these experiences which provide the authentic spice to our tours. Find out more here …
Walk Wild Scotland is about exploring Scotland’s secret places and wild landscapes, discovering wildlife and nature as much as stories, heritage and history and connecting you with local culture and people. Naturally, we are active and passionate about all aspects relating to protecting our environment.
