SHETLAND MIDSUMMER SOLSTICE
PLEASE NOTE: WE RUN THIS TOUR WITH OUR MATES AT HIGHLAND EXPLORER TOURS. THE BOOK NOW BUTTON WILL TAKE YOU TO THEIR BOOKING ENGINE. SELECT SPECIAL DEPARTURES - SHETLAND SUMMER SOLSTICE. SORRY IT'S A BIT OF A FAFF BUT WE PROMISE IT'S WELL WORTH THE EFFORT.
Today we explore wee islands, an awesome beach, a prehistoric settlement, and the dramatic cliffs at the far south of the island. By night, we enjoy local food and music, before watching the ‘simmer dim’ from a remote lighthouse. (B)
After breakfast, we go back in time at the site of Shetland's earliest parliament. Enjoy the last of the island scenery at peaceful Lunna Bay, and then return to Lerwick for lunch before the overnight ferry back to mainland Scotland. (B)
Back on mainland Scotland, and drive through scenic Royal Deeside and the Cairngorms National Park. Visit sites with connections to the Royal family and enjoy lunch in a charming village. Arrive back into Edinburgh at approximately 5.30pm.
In 2011 HAGGiS Adventures teamed up with 'Trees for Life', a Scottish charity specifically dedicated to restoring 1,000 square miles of self-sustaining, wild, Caledonian Forest with the aim of helping Scotland 'Stay Wild'. We have pioneered an Eco Scheme where you can make an optional £2 donation when booking any tour. We will match every pound you donate, with proceeds going to the Trees for Life.
