Take the family away for an exciting short break learning how to sea kayak in the crystal clear waters of Scotland's mountainous and wild west coast. Based from the Sound of Arisaig, on our Family Sea Kayaking Holiday you will go exploring every day visiting beaches, castles, and spotting local wildlife.
Go on an unforgettable family adventure to the Treasure Highlands, a week long holiday combining lots of activities. You will be able to enjoy the spectacular and magical scenery of the Scottish Highlands whilst canoeing, sea kayaking and mountain biking. In between activities you can go on a treasure hunt, visit desert islands, ride the Harry Potter Steam Train over the Glenfinnan Viaduct, explore the Cairngorms National Park, and discover ruined castles.
Stay in a comfortable beach-side cottage on the Isle of Harris with incredible views on our Self Catering Family Holiday to the Outer Hebrides.
The Isle of Harris, located in the Outer Hebrides archipelago on Scotland’s west coast, is one of our favourite places in Scotland. The north of the island is hilly and rugged, and all around the coastline are a string of pristine white sand beaches just waiting to be discovered. The wild landscapes and rich seas of Harris make ideal homes for birds and marine wildlife. This blend of scenery, combined with the turquoise waters and ever-changing light makes Harris the perfect island getaway for adventurous families and groups to explore.Tailor Made Family Holidays
Wilderness Scotland can also provide tailor made family adventures with a wide range of activities. Get the best out of Scotland with private guides and a large range of activities such as geo-caching, sea kayaking, mountain biking, open canoeing, fishing, hiking, treasure hunts, sailing and more. You can get as creative as you like with your holiday, we'll design and organize an innovative itinerary for you and your family, building in great accommodation, activities and experiences.
For example you can take to the water on a private yacht charter and enjoy being part of the crew, or simply kicking back and taking in the expansive island views on the west coast of Scotland. You'll sail in internationally renowned waters that are a must visit for any family interested in sailing. Or alternatively you can escape to real highland castles or go camping in Mongolian style yurts, learn bushcraft and cook under the starry skies.
Your holiday will not only be jam-packed full of fun, you will gain expert knowledge from our first-class guides, of the area in which you are holidaying - the landscape, nature, wildlife and culture will all form a big part of your holiday.
Our Green Ethos
We are firmly committed to responsible tourism and all of our tours reflect that commitment. Our holidays are purposefully designed to provide a visitor experience that maximises the positive benefits of tourism while minimising any negative impacts. We are staunch advocates of the Leave No Trace principles, in which our guides are fully trained. On all of our activities, our guides will ensure that the impact on the environment, wildlife and local community is minimised. During your trip, our guides will teach you how to do this so that the knowledge is spread on your travels in Scotland and further afield. Our guides are ambassadors for Scotland's wild places and are passionate about sharing their knowledge.
It's not just on trips that we promote sustainable processes! We operate our holidays out of a carbon-neutral headquarters which is powered by renewable energy. We reduce, reuse and recycle, using environmentally friendly products from local suppliers where possible. In addition, our office car park hosts two public EV charging stations, and we subsidise staff usage. We encourage car-sharing and compete monthly for the most environmentally friendly commute! Lastly, we are committed to contributing annually to a nature-based charity that promotes conservation in Scotland. Check out our Sustainability Page for more info.
