5 Day Coach Holiday

This autumn cruise combines coastal scenery with fascinating history. Orkney boasts pristine beaches and dramatic seas crashing against towering cliffs. The island’s attractions include standing stones  known as the Ring of Brodgar, the harbour of Stromness and Skara Brae - a Stone Age settlement that predates the Pyramids. Shetland has a craggy coastline peppered with arches and caves. Lerwick is the county town and the isle boasts Bronze Age, Viking and Medieval settlements as well as Jarlshof – one of the most remarkable archaeological sites ever excavated. We include a dinner, bed and breakfast hotel stay in the north of Scotland before exploring these enchanting islands as we cruise aboard our Northlink Ferry.
