We will also let you meet the people who work the land from Gamekeepers to Ecologists and hear their fascinating stories. We will let you get an understanding of how the character of Scotland’s countryside is shaped not only by the wildlife and their native habitat but also the people who work on the land.
Scotland is famed for spectacular scenery, wonderful wildlife, and fascinating history, and here at Wild Alba we want to share these with you. We are passionate about spending time in Scotland’s outdoors, whether that means hiking through remote glens, up mountains, and along rocky coasts, watching red squirrels and crested tits in secluded Caledonian pine forests, or exploring hidden lochs, castles and churches.
We believe that the best way to share this passion with guests is to keep group sizes small (usually a maximum of 6 unless otherwise stated). This allows us to tailor our tours to suit you, and almost every aspect of our tours can be modified on your request.
Our tours can be catered to suit all interests and abilities – from leisurely wildlife-spotting walks to more strenuous mountain and glen walks for the intrepid adventurer. For photographers, we offer guided workshops for complete beginners to experts, providing access to wildlife that is often elusive to find and difficult to photograph.
Our guides are a mixture of ecologists and outdoors enthusiasts who have been lucky enough to work in some of Scotland’s most remote and beautiful environments. As well as their knowledge of Scotland’s natural heritage, they have extensive experience leading walks and guided holidays in Scotland, England, Spain, and America, and have lectured in universities in Scotland and England. Whether you are a walker, photographer, keen birder, or general nature enthusiast, let our friendly guides introduce you to Scotland’s wild places. View our tours and workshop
