Shetland & Orkney Isles - 6 Days

Shetland & Orkney Isles - 6 Days

Orkney & Shetland, Stones of Stenness, Ring of Brodgar, Churchill Barriers, Italian Chapel, Scapa Flow, Skaill House

Thursday Day 1: We travel northwards with comfort stops to our overnight at the 3* Fishers Hotel, Pitlochry with time to freshen up before our evening meal. Tonight there will live entertainment in the bar.

Friday Day 2: After a hearty Scottish breakfast, we begin our drive through the stunning and scenic Cairngorm National Park to Inverness. We continue up the east coast to Thurso arriving in time for dinner at the 3* Royal Hotel, Thurso.

Saturday Day 3: We visit John O’Groats as far north as mainland Scotland goes. We return to Scrabster for our ferry crossing to the mystical Orkney Isles. We meet our local guide who will be with us throughout our visit to the island. Our tour takes us by The Churchill Barriers, the construction of which was ordered by Winston Churchill after the tragic torpedoing of the battleship, Royal Oak, in Scapa Flow during 1939. We will visit the Italian Chapel, ‘the miracle of camp 60’, that was built by Italian prisoners during World War II, followed by the mystical ancient settlement of Skara Brae, uncovered by a storm in 1850. This ancient settlement is older than Stonehenge and the amazingly preserved rooms provide us with a unique insight into pre-historic human living. Our tour continues with a visit to Skaill House, one of Orkney’s top tourist attractions, and the finest mansion on the island, steeped in 5,000 years of history, after which we continue on to the mystical Ring of Brodgar to view the standing stones, reminiscent of those at Stonehenge and Avebury, having been constructed around 2500 - 2000BC. We finish our time in Orkney at Kirkwall where dinner is provided at a local restaurant. After dinner, we will board our overnight ferry to the Shetland Islands.


Sunday Day 4:  After breakfast on board, we arrive in Lerwick and meet our guide for the day. We make our way southwards to the tip of the headland to visit the Jarlshof Prehistoric and Norse Settlement. This fantastically preserved ruin was only revealed by a storm at the end of the 19th century. Over 4,000 years of history are contained within this site and it remains a fantastic insight into life on the islands. We return northwards towards the capital Lerwick, where we will enjoy free time for lunch. In the afternoon, we make the journey to Scalloway Castle and Museum, dating from 1600, the castle is the former home to Earl Stewart. Later in the afternoon, we board our overnight ferry where dinner is served on board. We can relax and enjoy the final sea leg crossing from Lerwick to Aberdeen.


Monday Day 5: On arrival in Aberdeen, breakfast is served before we begin our final journey with a scenic drive through some of Scotland’s most picturesque countryside. We then continue our journey to our final hotel, the 3* King Robert Hotel, Stirling, where you can relax prior to dinner this evening.

Tuesday Day 6: Today, we will leave Scotland behind and make our way home.

Mystery Weekend Coach Tours from Sabrina Travel

  Just a short note to thank you for a wonderful tour of the Majestic Scottish Highlands. Two words - Magnificent and Dramatic. A big thank you for driving us safely and making the travelling comfortable as well as amusing and interesting. Thank you for acquiring good rooms of our choice in the 3 lovely hotels. It means a lot!  
Mr & Mrs Mills
  We wanted to thank you for a really great holiday to Northumberland. The coach was very comfortable and brilliantly driven. Dave was a great courier, entertaining us on route. The hotel was very good and in a great location. The days out were informative and the countryside beautiful. It was our first trip with you and we hope it will not be the last.  
Jen & Pete
  Just felt we had to let you know what a wonderful holiday we had on the Danube Cruise. We enjoyed it very much, everything was nice and so very well organised.  
  Once again an outstanding tour to the Tattoo - could not fault a thing. The trips out were great with lovely extras!  
Mrs Lawrence
