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
We offer exhilarating riding off the beaten track, through stunning scenery on our experienced horses or with opportunities for riders to bring their own horses. The ‘pop-up’ nature of our business takes us on adventures all over the wilds of west Scotland. We ride through soaring mountains, quiet hills, gentle meadows and woodlands. Our riding can include with opportunities to play on the beach and paddle in the sea.
Our riding adventures range from a half day treks to week long all-inclusive holiday packages with the choice of ‘wild west’ style camping with the horses to more luxury options including beach side accommodation or even hot tubs!
From April to October Cara, Nikki and The Herd will be running an action packed calendar of events from half day rides to week long all-inclusive riding holidays, popping up throughout the wilds of West Scotland. See below for our itinerary or contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for our scheduled holidays.
In addition to our scheduled itinerary we offer bespoke packages for groups and special occasions. For example we have created magical honeymoon riding experiences, special tailor made birthday picnic rides and are even about to do our first wedding beach ride; as well as delivering bespoke packages for larger groups such as University Riding Clubs.
At the end of 2018 we are heading east to trial a cross-country experience at the well-known Lindores Equestrian cross-country facility near to Lindores Abbey of Outlander fame. From 24th Sept to 7th October you can try one of our experienced steeds round the very accessible cross-country course at Lindores, supported and guided by Nikki and Cara.
The Wilder Ways adventures already planned for 2019 include:
Knoydart - April-July
The Wilder Ways team will be heading off grid to Scotland’s last true wilderness in the west, Knoydart, a peninsula but only accessible by boat. We'll be riding through breath-taking mountain scenery that changes with each bend in the path, through deep rivers and stony fords. Or come scrambling around the coast with spectacular views out to 'The Small Isles', Rum, Eigg and Skye, and try some real off-road adventuring - are you up for it?
Two months of exhilarating riding along Argyll’s Secret Coast. This little known part of Scotland is a hidden gem with a fabulous range of exciting riding opportunities including secret coves and bays, woodland trails, open hill land and lochs. In the evening you have the opportunity to relax in the infinity pool and hot tubs at Portavadie Marina, always a truly magical end to a hard day in the saddle. During both months we will also run week long point to point rides right across Cowal for the really adventurous amongst you.
The herd set sail again to enjoy the beautiful Hebridean Isle of Islay. We have put together an exciting programme of riding adventures, so you can explore some of the stunning scenery of this beautiful island. Enjoy a 7km golden beach, cliff-top paths, woodland trails and hills and, for the adventurous, some of the most extreme wilderness riding available. There'll also be time to see some local heritage and drop by one of the distilleries to sample some of the famous Islay malt whisky.
