Discover Shetland and Orkney’s boundless, salt-stung beauty on an unforgettable 9-day walking holiday. Known for their spectacular coastal scenery and rich ancient history, enjoy exploring these wild isles off of Scotland’s most northerly coast.
With your knowledgeable Wilderness guide, hike out to iconic sea stacks, cavernous caves and sheer cliffs that shimmer with thousands of seabirds. Visit National Nature Reserves and beaches where the sea breaks turquoise on crescents of white sand. As you explore, spot wildlife synonymous with these islands, including grey seals, brown hares, stocky Shetland ponies and a myriad of birds such as guillemots, fulmars, puffins and kittiwakes. Rich in heritage, tradition and folklore, visit fascinating archaeological sites and thoughtful, engaging museums. As darkness slips inland with the tide, relax in cosy accommodations hand-picked for their warm hospitality.
Where gannets dive like arrows beneath the surf and ethereal light shifts across the Atlantic, enjoy a guided walking adventure to a place surrounded and shaped by the sea.
