Your Itinerary

View a full breakdown of your holiday to help you plan your trip

  • Fly to Scotland to meet our Tour Manager. Once on board the coach we head towards the Isle of Skye. It's a long but beautiful journey, which, time permitting, we'll break at famous Eilean Donan Castle on the shores of Loch Duich.

  • After breakfast, today, we'll head past the Cullin Mountains to Dunvegan Castle - stronghold of the chiefs of MacLeod for nearly 800 years, and said to be the oldest continuously occupied 'family home' in Scotland. Discover its fascinating history, and wander the beautiful formal gardens that lie hidden amid the surrounding moorland and mountains.

    This afternoon, explore Portree. Admire the dramatic scenery and delightful white and colour-washed buildings around the harbour, browse the shops, and find out about the local environment at the town's exhibition.

  • Enjoy a leisurely start this morning before we head to Uig for our crossing to Lochmaddy on North Uist. On arrival, we head over a series of causeways - looking out for otters - to our hotel on Benbecula, where the scenery is studded with glittering freshwater and seawater lochs.

    After checking in to our hotel, you may like a stroll down to the beach, about 350 metres away, before dinner is served.

  • This morning we'll join our local guide and cross the causeway to South Uist, the Western Isles' second largest island. Stunningly beautiful, the island is a stronghold of the Gaelic language. Here, the crofting industries of peat cutting and seaweed gathering are still an important part of everyday life.

    We'll visit the Kildonan Museum, which introduces the island's archaeology and history, and includes a collection of South Uist artefacts. We'll also cross the 1650m-long causeway to the idyllic island of Eriskay (just three miles by two), immortalised in Compton Mackenzie's bestselling novel 'Whisky Galore'.

  • An hour-long ferry crossing takes us from the Island of Beneray to Leverburgh on the Isle of Harris. From here we'll drive to Stornoway on the Isle of Lewis and check into your next hotel.

  • Though a single landmass, Lewis and Harris have their own distinct identities and landscapes. Harris is an island split in two - high mountains and rocky coastline to the east; unspoilt Atlantic beaches to the west. See Rodel Church, possibly the grandest medieval building in the Western Isles, and explore the little port of Tarbert.

    Back amid the rolling moorland and freshwater lochs of Lewis we'll visit the standing stones of Calanais - 50 ancient stones arranged in rays around a central ring and easily the most mysterious sight in the islands - stop at Carloway Broch, a 2000-year-old fortified dry-stone tower, and visit the reconstructed Black House at Arnol, inhabited until 1965 - for a fascinating insight into the lives of the islands' past inhabitants.

  • On our final morning we'll head to the Butt of Lewis at the island's northern tip to take in the vast views of the remote landscape before we say our farewells. In the early afternoon, we'll begin the two-hour 45-minute crossing to Ullapool before a wonderfully scenic journey through Wester Ross to our final hotel in Newtonmore.

  • Journey back to the airport, this morning, to catch your flight home.

  • Please note that most local businesses in the Outer Hebrides will be closed on Sundays.

  • We sometimes need to combine transfers to and from your hotel. We always try to keep any wait to a minimum, but you may be asked to wait at the airport for up to an hour, while other incoming flights arrive, before the transfer to your hotel. Similarly, we may need to transfer you back to the airport up to three hours before your flight home departs.

  • If you have notified us of any special requirements, please check that they have been noted and acknowledged. This is especially important with any dietary needs you may have.

  • The majority of our tours involve a certain amount of walking, including a short walk from the coach stop to the town, attraction or venue you're visiting. If you are bringing a wheelchair, please let us know at the time of booking so that appropriate arrangements can be made.

  • Occasionally, for operational reasons, we may have to change the order of the excursions on your holiday. The final day-by-day itinerary will be confirmed on your Final Travel Documents, which you will receive approximately three weeks prior to your departure.

  • An Airport Development Fee has been introduced at a few UK Airports. You will be required to pay this charge at the following airports prior to checking in for your flight: Blackpool, Durham Tees Valley, Newquay and Norwich. The amount varies from airport to airport, but it is generally between GBP5 and GBP10 per person. Please visit the airport's website for further information.
