A brace of Scotland’s finest and most contrasting islands, and an oft-overlooked peninsula, ready for a week-long self-drive exploration.

Disarmingly simple to reach from the Ayrshire coast, the Isle of Arran has long been the go-to destination for peace-seeking West-of-Scots, while often-overlooked Kintyre peninsula is an area rich with history and superb, empty beaches just waiting to be discovered. Intrepid drivers can’t resist a trip to the southern tip, the Mull of Kintyre, made world-famous by Sir Paul McCartney. Then hop on another ferry to the Hebridean Isle of Islay, for more striking scenery, wildlife, history and whisky galore.
