Two of Scotland’s finest islands, plus mystical Iona and atmospheric Raasay, seen from a less-travelled perspective on this unique self-drive tour.

Despite their easy access via short ferry crossing (or via bridge to Skye), to step ashore both the isles of Mull and Skye is to enter two little worlds all their own, each with a distinct character and feel. Both offer the perfect opportunity to get under the skin of Scottish island culture.

We’ve lost count of the number of times we’ve visited each island, travelling their length and breadth uncovering hidden corners, paths trodden by fewer, and the most welcoming accommodation. This self-drive tour curates all of that experience, plus side trips to neighbouring isles of Iona and Raasay, in a very special eight-night odyssey, incorporating wildlife, whisky, world-class walking and an exhilarating private RiB trip.
