Horse Riding in the Highlands

Have you ever wanted to try horse riding with the backdrop of the gorgeous Highland hills and lochs? At Wilder Ways in the Knoydart peninsula, also known as ‘Scotland’s last true wilderness, you can go horse riding off the grid and take part in a fulfilling adventure that allows you to go even further into the wild outdoors. Southend is only accessible by boat so it’s truly a remote location. Surrounded by 4 of the Munros mountains – all over 3000ft – the view is ever-changing as you go from seeing the impressive, snowy peaks to getting a peek at the small Isles – Rum, Eigg and Skye. It is truly a unique experience to horse ride in this stunning area of Scotland!
