What our customers say about our
just wanted to say thank you for the seamless organisation of our lovely
walking holiday in the Outer Hebrides and for arranging such fantastic weather
or us too :) We were very impressed with all your information and for the
thoughtfully laminated maps! We would particularly like to mention and thank
our fantastic taxi drivers, Kirsty on Barra and Angus and Callum on Harris
and Lewis. FYI from Berneray to Harris we were scheduled to take the 10.30
ferry, which meant that for walkers like us (walking at a reasonable speed
but not fast) it was impossible to rendezvous with our taxi at 17:00 and
18:00/18:30 would have made the walk more enjoyable for us. The lack of
phone signal makes it difficult to contact the taxi on route, so we had
to leave the route and take the road to try and meet our rendezvous time.
Angus said other walkers he collected had had similar time problems on that
walk, so I thought it might be helpful for your future planning to be aware
of that." Hilary

|I thought I would let you know that my walking holiday which you organised for me (The Hebridean Way) went extremely well. I was very impressed with your company's efficiency; the attention to detail, maps, instructions etc. Everything passed off without a hitch. I lost one day only due to extremely bad weather. Luckily for me I was in Tarbert and with no forward movement scheduled for that day I was not affected other than losing one day's walking and a small section of the journey. I look forward to using your company again for future walks. The Pembrokeshire coast path is next up on my list. Edwin UK 2019|
|"Just to say many thanks for organizing a superb holiday walking The Hebridean Way from south to north. I've enjoyed staying in all the accommodations with special mention for Carminish Hous in Leverburgh where accommodation and hospitality was exceptional. Luggage transfers and taxi pickups were excellent, with luggage always delivered before I arrived and taxi collections on time. The Hebridean Way is a cracking route in terms of contrasting scenery and terrain. I saw many beaches and St Kilda at their best and moorland at its atmospheric best". Emma UK 2019|
|"Everything went very well in terms of the accommodation and transport. The Harris Hotel at Tarbert was particularly good, absolutely superb. All the taxi companies were brillient, very co-operative and helpful. Some of the going was very tough in terms of the terrain and underfoot conditions. But to sum up we thoroughly enjoyed the challenge of walking it and we are all really pleased we did it, very worth while and satisfying. As you know we were all concerned about the midges but thankfully the only time we had a bit of a problem with them was when walking the stretch to the Butt of Lewis, otherwise we got away with it, fantastic And we only had one day when the weather was really bad so again we were lucky. Thank you for all the hard work which went into making the trip manageable and enjoyable." David's group of 9 UK 2019|
the arrangements you made were excellent for us. All the accommodations
were great although some were a bit of a trek to reach after 12 miles of
walking across moors and bogs.
Bag drops worked a treat. Many thanks. Sandy's taxis on Barra was particularly entertaining. Lovely guy.
All in all we had a fantastic trip. For us (of an age) it was quite hard walking across moors and wading through bogs (I discovered my boots are not waterproof). In the end with a couple of wee detours(lost) and walking to accommodation we covered about 100 miles according to our phones.
We are now discussing finishing the walk next year by coming back to walk Harris and Lewis. You never know, we may be back in touch.
Thank you again for making our quick decision holiday such a success. We wish you well for the season." Linda and Marj UK 2019
a short note to say thanks for your organization of our walk on the Hebridean
Way. We had a fantastic time. Everything went very smoothly and the taxi
drivers in particular were great. I think three of the accommodation locations
you provided were a bit out but only one of these caused us any concern.
One comment that might help any future walkers is that we found the section from Scarista to the start of the Coffin Track to be very difficult due to the roughness of the ground more than anything else. Potential ankle breaking stuff for several hours. While the views from this section were great, if we were to ever do the walk again I think we would walk this section along the road and then join the Coffin Track.
Another comment is that the next section of the walk after the Coffin Track, sometimes called the Scholars Path, is a very very special length of Track. While only 4.5 km long we would advise people to take this slowly and thoroughly enjoy it. In a couple of sections it is straight out of Lord of the Rings.
Many thanks again" Tim and Sally Australia 2018
just wanted to say a BIG thank you and that we had an amazing time in the
Outer Hebrides. The logistics worked perfectly; the B&Bs were diverse
and gave a good insight into local people.
The distances were perfect and to have covered so much in just 8 days of running was amazing. Andrew and Helen UK 2018
we arrived back last night and want to thank you for all your planning and
attention to detail. All transfers and drivers were punctual and lovely
and took great care of us.
B and B's and hotels were great some exceptionally so and each one an experience in its own right. The other thing well worth mentioning to whoever runs the Hebridean Way paths and tracks out on moors quite a number of marker posts are missing especially at some really crucial points where there were numerous directions to take and caused us great concern in the very wet boggy ground where we got stuck and fell over, thinking on it might be as well to mention, especially if not in hot dry summer conditions, that some hill walking experience would be good. Fortunately Hilary and I are pretty sensible and experienced in outdoors and managed but was quite hairy in places, after the 5th day the land was so wet and we considered could be dangerous re accidents and no phone signal re rescue if needed we kept pretty well to main roads after that.
So in the scheme of things worth mentioning and again your arrangements and planning were excellent and ran as smooth as clockwork. Thank you again for a wonderful experience." Mary and Hilary UK 2018
