The perfect pairing of wilderness and wonder on a self-drive: Scotland’s answer to Route 66 and combine with the magical islands of Orkney. Any element of this trip can be tailor-made to suit your individual requirements - just call 0141 308 8009.

Scotland's northern coastline has garnered an enviable reputation as one of the world’s great touring routes, offering keen drivers challenging roads and breath-taking scenery, while Orkney – just a 90-minute ferry crossing away – is like another world, where ancient Neolithic history meets unique landscape and more terrific driving.


£1075 per person in March, £1090 in April & October, £1160 in May through September.

Price is based on two adults sharing a double or twin en-suite room for 12 nights on a bed and breakfast basis in our hand-picked selection of small hotels and guest houses. This holiday also includes:

  • Return ferry crossings to Orkney and the Isle of Rousay
  • A Historic Scotland Explorer pass, allowing entry to Orkney’s key historical sites.

Before your departure, you will receive personalised holiday information including full directions, recommended routes, and suggestions on places to visit depending on your interests and our local knowledge to help you get the most from your holiday.

Our unique itinerary combines both with alluring, comfortable accommodation.
