Equally charming but entirely distinctive, the combination of Orkney and Shetland makes for an exhilarating escape from daily life.

With such a plethora of mysterious prehistoric ruins, dramatically varying landscapes and fascinating ancient history, it takes time to really understand and appreciate just how special Orkney and Shetland are. Guided tours aplenty, hand-selected charming accommodation and travel by land and air will help you really get under the skin of these most northerly Scottish islands on this 14-night holiday.
