We take closer at this unique way of exploring the country of rolling green hills and kilt-wearing bag-pipers
There are countless ways to explore gorgeous Scotland – touring the grand castles, train rides through majestic landscapes, driving along the coastal lines and the list goes on. One of the best ways is to go on an island-hopping adventure!
Whether you’ve only got a couple of days or a couple of weeks, it’s worth taking the time to explore a few islands and take in the unique character of each. The main island groups are Inner and Outer Hebrides in the west, and Orkney and Shetland in the north.

Scotland boasts a myriad of beaches! Have a goat paddling a kayak in the crystal-clear waters near the Barra coast. Or walk on the pristine sands of Luskentyre Sands on the Isle of Harris. Visit Stornoway to soak in the Gaelic culture and hear it being spoken throughout the island.
