Fly-drive Holidays

Time is precious and if you want to squeeze every last drop from your trip, a fly-drive holiday is a great idea.

Flying makes our beautiful remote islands much more accessible for a holiday of any length. Perhaps you will take a short break to explore Shetland and Orkney in the far north or soak up a whisky-packed long weekend on Islay (though do let us arrange taxis if you don’t have a designated driver). Our Scottish and Irish island airports are a world-away from most modern flying experiences. Barra is the only airport in the world where you literally land on the seashore – tide permitting, of course. Fly into Scotland, Ireland, Northern England or the Channel Islands and we’ll have a car or transfer waiting for you to start your holiday as soon as you arrive. Your pre-planned, personalised itinerary will have everything you need to enjoy your journey from the very beginning, including maps and recommendations of places to see, the best viewpoints to stop at and tasty ideas for where to eat along the way.

What’s more, all our fly-drive holidays are financially protected by our ATOL licence, giving you complete peace of mind.
