"You cannot help but fall in love with the big skies and teeming wildlife of Tanera Mòr, the largest island in the Summer Isles archipelago, and you cannot help but be inspired by the Wilder family, who run residential courses there. Fourteen years ago, Wiltshire dairy farmers Bill and Jean Wilder were looking for new challenges and found them on the isle, where they now let holiday cottages. Their daughter, conservationist Lizzie Williams, runs courses ranging from willow weaving and sea kayaking to yoga and creative writing." (I promise I didn't write it myself!)
