Orkney and The Castle of Mey

Orkney and The Castle of Mey

A touring holiday through some of Britain's most spectacular scenery

This touring holiday will take you through some of the most spectacular scenery you will ever encounter in Britain, including part of Highland Scotland’s famous North Coast 500. Following a stay in the port of Ullapool we take a drive up the west coast to the remote village of Durness, the most north-westerly in Scotland. We will then enjoy three nights in Castletown which provides a good base for our excursions to Orkney and the Castle of Mey. And no visit to the top of Scotland would be complete without a visit to John O’Groats !
