Situated in the far north of Scotland, Orkney and Shetland are some of the most compelling places to visit in the whole country. These islands have a rich history, incredible scenery, stunning wildlife, as well as their own unique culture and traditions.
This tour of Orkney and Shetland is one of our favourites - we'd suggest at least a week to explore the islands, but ten days is better, and two weeks is perfect. This is a great part of the world to slow down, relax and immerse yourself.
The easiest way to get there is by air. You can fly from Glasgow, Edinburgh, Inverness, or (new for 2023) direct from London. Once you're on the islands, the easiest way to get around is by car. Alternatively, you can get the overnight ferry from Aberdeen - you can even take your car on it, and sleep in a comfortable cabin.
This tour itinerary is, of course, just a suggestion - we can customise it for you, incorporate it into a wider Scotland Journey, or change it up entirely. Why not add a few days in Edinburgh or Glasgow?
