The tours of both islands will be conducted by local guides, who will share the islands’ history and heritage with you, as well as all those anecdotes and fascinating bits of information that only locals know! Rugged and remote, with a raw natural beauty and stunning cliff and sea loch scenery, Shetland has a unique culture and fantastic wildlife. Your day’s sightseeing on Shetland has been carefully planned to give you a feel of all that the main island has to offer, including the outstanding Norse settlement of Jarlshof, Scalloway Castle and Museum and time in the enchanting old town of Lerwick. Orkney is altogether greener and more fertile than Shetland and its peoples have traditionally been farmers as opposed to seafarers. Highlights of your time in Orkney include the World Heritage sites of Skara Brae and the spectacular Standing Stones of Stenness, as well as the more recent Churchill Barriers and remarkable Italian Chapel, both stark reminders of the part played by Orkney in the Second World War. Back on the mainland, you’ll have a quick peep at John O’Groats, Britain’s famous most northern outpost, have time to explore fairytale Dunrobin Castle with its confection of turrets and roofs, and visit the popular Highland resort of Pitlochry. Combine visits to the beautiful and contrasting islands of Orkney and Shetland with time in the Scottish Highlands, on this never-to-be-forgotten holiday.

Your Whisky Trail starts with a visit to the Glenlivet Distillery, home of this famous single malt since 1824, for a guided tour and complimentary dram. Then it’s off to the Speyside Cooperage, the only working cooperage in the UK. Using traditional methods and tools, you’ll see highly skilled coopers at work as they create the casks that are a vital component in Scotland’s whisky- making process. The day ends with a ride on the Whisky Line – an eleven-mile heritage railway line linking the ‘World’s Malt Whisky Capital’, Dufftown, to the market town of Keith. Acclaimed by Michael Palin as one of the ‘Great Railways of the World’, the Inverness to Kyle line is truly memorable. The eighty-mile run takes you around the western edge of the Beauly Firth to Dingwall before heading West. The views as you make your way down to Loch Carron, past Attadale Estate and Plockton into the small port of Kyle of Lochalsh are breathtaking. No less impressive is the run from Fort William to Mallaig along the famous West Highland Line, thought by many to be the most spectacular in Britain.

Here you’ll visit the main town of Portree and magnificent Dunvegan Castle, spectacularly sited on a promontory overlooking the sea. Many of the castle’s public rooms are open and the formal gardens are a hidden oasis amid the barren Skye landscape. The Isles of Lewis and Harris are guardians of a rich culture with roots in the mists of time. Although basically one land mass, the islands have always had their own distinct identities and unique physical characteristics, and during your stay you’ll explore both, having the chance to enjoy the varied scenery as well as visiting some of the main historical and archaeological sites. Highlights include two reminders of the islands’ ancient past, the spectacular standing stones of Callanish and the imposing Broch of Carloway, and a visit to the preserved and reconstructed ‘Black House’ at Arnol. The drive from Ullapool across the north west Highlands to Carrbridge for the final night is yet another scenic delight. From the ocean-washed sands of vast empty beaches, to mountains and moorlands rich in flora and fauna, the Hebrides (or Western Isles as they are sometimes known) are unspoilt, uncrowded and timeless. With stunning scenery, an ancient history and a unique culture – these islands offer visitors a never-to-be-forgotten experience.
