Visiting three beautiful but hard-to-reach
destinations in just five nights means this
short getaway is packed full with exploration.
Unearth history at Dunrobin or Cawdor castle
from Invergordon; discover ancient stone
circles and wild, rugged landscapes in the
Orkneys; and explore spectacular ruins and
coastal scenery in the Shetlands.
Your short getaway begins in Invergordon, gateway to Loch Ness.
Those looking for an adventure can go in search of the famous
mythical monster, while whisky lovers can visit the
Glenmorangie Distillery to savour a true taste of Scotland.
There’s also the chance to explore captivating Cawdor Castle,
which is steeped in history and legend; or the awe-inspiring
Dunrobin Castle, the largest house in the Highlands.
Next up is Kirkwall, capital of the beautiful Orkney Islands. You’ll
have a full day to explore the town’s gloriously rugged
surroundings and perhaps venture to the dominating St Magnus
Cathedral. On a tour you can discover the 5,000-year-old
Neolithic village of Skara Brae, along with the Standing Stones of
Stenness and the Ring of Brodgar, two ancient stone circles.
Finally, you’ll reach the picturesque Shetland Islands. A call into
Lerwick presents the chance to visit Clickimin Broch, which dates
back to the Iron Age; the ancient castle ruins at Scalloway; or the
archaeological site at Jarlshof. Alternatively, join a tour to
Northmavine, which showcases some of the island’s most
spectacular coastal scenery. After all the exploring, enjoy a wellearned
day at sea to relax as you sail back to Newcastle.
