Highlands and Islands

September 11 - 23, 2023

(tentative dates)

Our much anticipated Highlands and Islands Edition of our signature Wool & Whisky tour will explore the most northerly regions of mainland Scotland - from Inverness to Dunnet Head, around the spectacular coast to Ullapool.  We will venture to the Orkney Islands, head by ferry to the Outer Hebrides, then fly to Glasgow.  This tour will cover a lot of ground, a lot of history, a lot of textile traditions - and just a wee bit of whisky!  Small yarn producers, indie dyers, tapestry artists and that iconic Harris Tweed will all be featured, along with farms keeping rare breed sheep!

Greek Isles (8).png
Walking Adventure in Scotland's Outer Hebrides

Not Yet Scheduled

Off the west coast of Scotland lies an archipelago of islands, known to Scots as “the Western Isles”. These islands, from tiny Barra in the south, to the more well known islands of Lewis and Harris in the north, are home to the largest population of Scottish Gaelic speakers and are the only place allowed to produce the famed Harris Tweed. The landscape varies greatly, from soft, white beaches to rugged mountains, fields of flowering machair, bogs and lakes aplenty. Days of hiking alternate with time at local crofts, ferry crossings, farm-to-table restaurants, seasonal events and the unforgettable Callanish Standing Stones.
