Enjoy a Wonderful 11 Day Tour to the Scottish Islands including the Outer Hebrides, the Orkneys & the Shetlands. With around 790 offshore islands Scotland is an island lover’s paradise and these fall into four main groupings. Shetland, the Orkneys, the Inner Hebrides and the Outer Hebrides. The largest islands are Lewis and Harris, then there are a further 162 islands each with an area greater than 40 hectares.

The Outer Hebrides - a 130-mile long island chain on the north-western fringe of the UK. The main islands are Lewis and Harris, North and South Uist, Benbecula and Barra, but there are also scores of smaller islands. Magnificent beaches with perfect white sand, stretch for mile upon mile on their western coastlines. The islands also offer a unique culture, being the stronghold of the Gaelic language, and superb wildlife.

 

The Islands of Orkney - a group of about 70 islands and skerries situated 10km (6.2 miles) from the north-east tip of the Scotland. The largest island, known as 'the mainland’, is home to most of the total 20,000 population but the north islands of Shapinsay, Gairsay, Stronsay, Wyre, Rousay, Egilsay, Eday, Sanday, Westray, Papa Westray and North Ronaldsay and the south islands of Graemsay, Hoy, South Walls, Burray, Flotta and South Ronaldsay are also populated.

 

The Shetland Islands - You'll be enchanted by the rugged beauty of the landscape. Its dramatically changing colours and textures will take your breath away. Shetland’s nearest neighbour is Orkney, 50 miles to the south-west, Norway is just over 200 miles to the east and the Faroe Islands lie about the same distance away to the north-west. Shetland’s natural sights are world-class, bird watching is outstanding and you may also see seals, otters, porpoises and even whales. Shetland has some unique species, like the Shetland wren and the wonderful miniature Shetland ponies.

We have always been impressed by the sheer EFFORT your team have put into the company, & long may it continue.  In these difficult trading times, it is simply wonderful to see a business succeed and grow in a decidedly niche area;  every customer of yours we've met has been brimming over with praise, even when the odd hiccup has arisen [as they will with this sort of activity], so Jenny & I look forward to more adventures at home & abroad with Scenic & Continental Car Tours. Very Best wishes Brian & Jenny Osborne
