Uncover some of our favourite Scottish islands, every bit as appealing, full of wildlife, whisky and wonder as their better known neighbours!

We never stop recommending some of the lesser-visited Scottish islands, each with an atmosphere and way of life all its own. So, take an opportunity to try Island-hopping the McKinlay Kidd way on this brand-new two-week road trip. We’ve grappled with the timetables and ferry connections – all you have to do is turn up and enjoy your voyage of discovery.

Pricing

£2165 per person in April & October and £2255 per person from May to September.

Prices are based on two adults sharing a double or twin room for 14 nights on a bed and breakfast basis, staying in our hand-picked selection of small hotels and guest houses. Return ferry crossings to Islay and Mull for car and two passengers are included, as well as foot-only return crossing to Iona; the short crossings to Jura and Lismore are not pre-bookable so guests will need to pay upon boarding.

Also included is a one-hour boat trip from Jura, a half-day wildlife tour on Mull, a boat trip from Iona to Staffa and a guided tour on Lismore.

Car hire is not included but can be arranged for a selection of vehicles – just let us know.

Before your departure, you will receive personalised holiday information including full directions, recommended routes, and suggestions on places to visit depending on your interests and our local knowledge to help you get the most from your holiday.

All itineraries and room types are presented subject to availability at specific hotels.

We work hard to make sure the unexpected doesn’t affect your trip. On rare occasions, changes or cancellations may occur, affecting accommodation, transport or excursions. We are committed to informing you of any such circumstances and will use our knowledge and resources to offer suitable alternatives wherever possible.
