Wilder Ways offer inspiring riding adventures in the West of Scotland. We organise a range of adventures throughout the summer from day rides to week long holidays, or can run bespoke adventures for small groups.
Please see our Trip Advisor reviews here
Wilder Ways adventure riding holidays are all about the riding. We want you to feel the joy of developing a bond with your horse, riding off the beaten track, through stunning scenery and with great local food and luxurious accommodation in the evenings. The ‘pop-up’ nature of our business takes us on adventures across the wilds of West Scotland, through soaring mountains, quiet hills, wild meadows and golden beaches - have you ever swum with a horse?
Our adventures range from half day treks to week long all-inclusive holiday packages. In 2019 we will be running short break and week-long holidays throughout the summer season from April to October. Half and full day riding adventures are available from each location subject to availability.
Half day rides from 10am-1pm and 2pm-5pm - £70pp
Full day rides from 10am-4pm - £130pp including a packed lunch

Lindores Equestrian - Cross-county, jumping and horsemanship experiences - 16th September to 6th October
This is your chance to try one of our horses around the fabulous facilities at Lindores equestrian (near Lindores Abbey of 'Outlander' fame), usually only available to people with their own horse. We are offering 3 day holidays starting with a short trail ride along the beautiful Tay Valley followed by a range of supported activities including show-jumping, cross-country and horsemanship. The courses are tailored to suit your ability and allow for all jumping levels from beginner (provided you are secure at canter) to advanced.
Three-day jumping experience holidays run from 20th-22nd & 27-29th September and from 4th-6th October and include 2 nights accommodation at a luxurious Lindores Lodge (complete with hot-tub), hearty and delicious home-cooked meals and use of the arena and cross-country course facilities during your sessions. Cost £750pp
A one-day session starts with a show-jumping lesson in the morning to let you and your horse get to know each other, followed by lunch before heading up to the cross-country course for the afternoon. We do each jump as a group so that everyone can be supported at their own level - though we expect you to bring your nerve! The day session costs £150pp.
In addition to our scheduled itinerary we offer bespoke packages for groups and special occasions. For example we have created magical honeymoon riding experiences, tailor-made birthday picnic rides and even a wedding beach-ride, as well as delivering bespoke holidays for larger groups such as University Riding Clubs and groups of friends.
