Adventurous types looking for a stylish new way to experience Scotland’s great outdoors should pencil in a journey with Wildnis, which is launching the first of its luxury camp-based expeditions in the Scottish Highlands this month. Founded by former British military officers, the company employs a small fleet of upgraded Land Rover Defenders to transport guests (and the tents they’ll sleep in) to remote off-road locales in the Trossachs and Glen Coe region, where activities will range from scrambling along ridgelines and abseiling down sheer cliffs, to pack-rafting across a secluded loch and sea kayaking off wild beaches. Each evening is spent at a mobile base camp where the day’s exertions are rewarded with drams of single malt and gourmet feasts prepared over an open fire by a Michelin-trained chef: think spit-roasted grouse, venison shoulder with nettle sauce, and platters of Scottish seafood. Prices start at about US$4,560 per person for a four-night fully guided and catered trip.
