Getting around

Island-hopping Scotland can be done very easily as regular ferry connections run from the mainland to the islands on the west and north coasts, and also in between the islands as well. In the west of Scotland, you might want to check out CalMac which is the largest operator of ferry services that run across the Outer and Inner Hebrides.

If you’re thinking about exploring the north of Scotland, Orkney and Shetland are connected to the mainland and each other by NorthLink Ferries. Of course, if your budget allows, you can always island hop by plane as some islands have a local airport where chartered flights come in from mainland Scotland and beyond.

Check out these brilliant destinations and you’re sure to have an unforgettable holiday in Scotland.
