Update on our Uganda Tours
- October 2023
We are deeply saddened by the recent, tragic attack in Uganda. Our hearts are with the victims and their loved ones during this difficult time. Out of respect and caution, Wildfoot Travel has taken the decision to pause all tours to Uganda for now.
Safety is, and will always be, our number one priority, and we hope to return responsibly when the situation allows.

About British Isles
Our remarkable Scotland and British Isles cruises are crammed full of cultural, historical and wildlife focussed experiences, and we really want you to experience the very best of all of them. Exploring onboard your expedition ship we take you to places that are off the beaten track and offer you the chance to immerse yourself in everything from the Norse traditions of the Shetlands to fascinating 5,000-year-old Stone Age ruins to the historic legacy of Portsmouth. Embarking on a journey that takes in Britain, Ireland, and Scotland you’ll delve into the culture of local coastal towns, kayak in the lakes of Scotland, immerse yourself in the cultural delights of Dublin and Edinburgh and visit some of the most charming yet remote islands in the world.
At Wildfoot we are expert in offering the very best of every destination we explore, and our cruises to Britain and Scotland are no exception. Sample Islay’s celebrated malts in the morning and then explore the colonies of seals, puffins and guillemots in the afternoon. Uncover the hidden side of places well-travelled on an expedition that concentrates on the highlights, navigates the clichés and offers personal encounters that every one of our guests will always remember.

Helping you build your perfect holiday
With such wonderful sailing around England, Northern Island, the Republic of Ireland and Scotland, you’ll get a feel for the rugged and stunning coastline and what lies within. Our expedition ships are equipped with zodiacs to give guests the chance to venture to the remote places that larger vessels can’t access.
It never takes long for all of our guests to get to know each other onboard, sharing stories and chatting about the day’s adventures. It is important to us that everyone feels comfortable so we host an informal ship with opportunities to do your own thing or join group activities.
Ah, Scotland in particular is a haven for souvenir shoppers. Whiskey is the obvious choice but a piece of fine Harris Tweed makes a nice gift for a friend at home, or why not for yourself?
Best time to travel
Spring has to be one of the best times for a British Isles cruise. The flowers are exquisite and their fragrance bathes the air wherever you go. Spring is often more sunny than summer, and that fresh sunshine brings with it pleasant temperatures that are perfect for exploring.
The ‘Islands of Scotland’ itinerary offers an in-depth exploration of Scotland while the ‘British Isles: Legendary History and Wild Nature’ covers Wales, Northern Island, and the Republic of Ireland. Both itineraries offer plentiful opportunities to explore.
Cameras at the ready. Your British Isles cruise will throw up so many scenes worthy of a photo. We even have a photographer onboard the ship who runs a photography workshop to help you hone your skills.
