Orkney and Shetland Explorer

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.

Here at The Tartan Road, we specialise in luxury Scottish vacations. Our tours are bespoke and tailored to exactly what you want to do. This itinerary is just an example - get in touch and let us customise it for your perfect holiday.

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 Shetland Islands are the most northerly point of the British Isles. An the border between the North Sea and the Atlantic, battered by storms, and with some of the most spectacular wildlife in Scotland.

An Orkney tour is something that will stay with you for a lifetime. The rich history and unique culture of these islands has been recognised by UNESCO as globally important.

The easiest way to get there is by air. You can fly from GlasgowEdinburghInverness, or (new for 2023) direct from London. Once you're on the islands, the easiest way to get around is by car.
