So much of life seems to run at full tilt; deadlines, busy timetables and targets to be met. We like to think we can help alleviate all of these on one of our popular Slowly… holidays. Relax and take your time to explore at an unhurried pace – you’ll discover many hidden gems along the way.
For those seeking a driving holiday, take your time and really get to know the hidden corners and gems of Scotland’s world famous North Coast 500. Completing this epic road trip at a slower pace allows you to discover some of Scotland’s wildest scenery and remote locations, all while getting close to the area’s fascinating history and culture. Another option is to tour the Outer Hebrides, Scotland’s enchanting outlying islands, at a leisurely pace and uncover the authenticity and tranquillity of Barra, Vatersay, Eriskay, Benbecula, Bernerary, Harris, Scalpay and Lewis. You’ll experience some of the most appealing, out-of-the-way accommodation to ensure the most relaxing of Scottish island-hopping holidays.
Or perhaps you’d like to leave the car behind and travel by public transport. Explore the coast and wilderness around the spectacular Far North Line on our North Highlands by Train holiday. Another fantastic option for travelling car-free is Slowly Along the West Highland Line where you can travel one of Europe’s finest rail routes with leisurely stops and a bit of island-hopping along the way. You’ll also get to take a trip on the highly-acclaimed Jacobite Express steam train.

Stunning beaches, miles of dramatic coastline and rich history all await you on the Channel Islands. As the perfect place to relax and unwind, why not take your time and fully immerse yourself into island life with our Slowly Through the Channel Islands trip? Dine al fresco in one of Jersey’s many outdoor venues or visit the historic sites in Guernsey such as Castle Cornet. Alderney is also ideal for nature trails and heritage walks. Be sure to visit the smaller Islands of Sark and Herm to experience true tranquillity and explore secluded bays by bike or on foot (no cars are allowed on these islands!)
Remember we can tailor-make a trip to suit you – turn any of our holidays into a Slowly… one by adding on extra nights. Perhaps stay for three to four nights in a location instead of just a couple, allowing plenty of time to enjoy a destination at your leisure.
