Scottish history, nature and landscapes

There is an adventure holiday in Scotland for everyone.  Scotland is renowned for its stunning natural heritage, with amazing landscapes, abundant, diverse flora and fauna, and an outdoor playground that is the envy of many countries around the world.

Awesome activities and Scottish Hospitality

We offer guided holiday options that combine both outdoor activity and Scottish hospitality. Our holidays are for those who want a change from package holidays in the sun, those who value their health and fitness, or those looking for a relaxing, stress-busting outdoors experience in the peace and quiet of the Scottish country-side.

We welcome private group bookings as well as indviduals or smaller groups, and ages from teens to those in their 60s or even 70s, depending on the venue and nature of the tour.

Have your own ideas but need help?

If you have an idea of your own but need the added security of a guide, and the hire of equipment, get in touch so we can help you plan with the benefit of our knowledge.

Please note: if there isn’t a scheduled date available to book online to suit you, and you have at least 4 people in your group, we can potentially organise a date to suit you. Don’t hesitate to contact us.

“The trip was glorious. Highlights were the location that despite the weather allowed us to see the wilderness in all its glory. Our guide, Stewart was awesome; knowledgeable, assertive, accommodating, fun and a great host. We felt safe but challenged at all times.The group were great and we all gelled really well, one another’s company making the trip really special. The kit provided served its purpose and was high quality. The trip was respectful of nature and sustainability. We had all the weathers and the extra big tent provided a great communal space for evenings chatting, eating, drinking and playing games in the rain and gales! The food and drink provision was fab! An awesome experience, thankyou and will definitely return to this way of experiencing adventure. Feel cleansed, nourished and rebooted!”

Kayak and Wild Camp the West Coast of Scotland Holiday

“Superb trip. Location was always going to be amazing, but it was the organisation of the trip that created the 5* experience. Andy is an incredibly talented guide and a brilliant human being! His planning and organisation were incredibly efficient, he is a fantastic communicator and very skilled at managing groups and individuals, and his cooking and camp-craft skills were beyond belief! He was clearly very well supported by organisational systems and structures at IYE as well. The ability to react to changing weather and circumstances with no detrimental impact on the trip was testament to this. Campsites were very well chosen and amazing places to stay. Health and safety was a clear priority. Kit was great. Group dynamics made the trip, but this was in large part due to the atmosphere created by Andy and his energy and enthusiasm.”
