One of the best way to explore Scotland is through its national parks where mountains, tundra, forests, and wildlife can all be found. Tour operator Wilderness Scotland has recently added two new wilderness walking adventures as well as one new luxury walking experience. 

Wilderness Scotland has been rated Europe’s No. 1 adventure travel company by National Geographic, and is Scotland’s only five-star accredited adventure tour operator, according to the company. It offers active and nature based travel throughout the British Isles. New tours include:
