Island Hopper

With more than 790 islands in Scotland it’s hard to choose which ones to visit so let us help you enjoy a 15 day island hopping tour.

Starting on the superb Isle of Arran in the Firth of Clyde we’ll guide you to the western islands in Scotland to explore the Outer Hebrides.  From Barra in the south and Lewis and Harris in the north you’ll find pristine white beaches, rugged Atlantic coastlines, wildlife, vibrant wild flowers and a rich crofting and fishing history.

From these remote, wild and beautiful land and seascapes we’ll guide you back across The Minch to the Highlands and onto the mountainous Isle of Skye where you can take an exhilarating day trip to the Small Isles. Enjoy wildlife, adventure in the great outdoors, history, culture and some great eating and drinking on this Scottish island-life tour.

It is easy to extend this tour with unique once in a life-time extensions to the island of St Kilda or Orkney and Shetland, all of which have a rich history and make for very special places to visit in Scotland.  There are islands in Scotland for everyone so let us know if you have any particular places on our wish-list and we can help create a unique itinerary for you.

We pride ourselves on a personal and quality service which offers a value for money tailored tour enabling a unique Scottish experience that suits you.  Whilst we are taking a wee break from business at the moment to concentrate on family, if you are feeling inspired by this escape to Scotland feel free to get in touch here and we can always put you in touch with someone locally who may be able to help you with your travel plans.
