Scottish Island Tours

Miles from Nowhere


Dramatic rocks piercing a faraway horizon. Lochs seeping into coastal cliffs.
And treasured tales that'll last you a lifetime. The Scottish Islands boast the wildest scenery in the country.

And with Rabbie's, you can escape to Skye, Mull, Iona, Islay, Arran, Orkney, and the Outer Hebrides.

Our small group tours let you see the Scottish islands through the eyes of a local and discover their legends, best-kept secrets, and beautiful crafts.

We have 3 – 17 day tours to the islands. So, even if you only have a few days in Scotland, you can (and should) include a few islands in your travel plan.

Why you'll love Scotland's islands


Puffins on Isle of Mull

Abundant wildlife

In Orkney, bird watchers spotted 100 species in a week. In Mull, it’s almost guaranteed you’ll see a whale, dolphin, or porpoise. And in the Hebrides, you’re bound to stroll close to a herd of seals. So, join a tour to the islands, get your binoculars ready, and watch the wildlife roam.

Fingal's Cave Staffa

Geologic giants

Mesozoic eras, rock cycles, relative dating: geology can be dull. But not when you’re in the Scottish islands. Because 400 million-year-old outcrops clash with the weather and create extraordinary caves, immense mountains, and staggering sea-cliffs. After visiting, earth science may be your new favourite subject.


Callanish Standing Stones Isle of Lewis

History’s mysteries

No one knows why we built stone circles. But when you’re there, it's unimportant. Because a mystical awe overcomes you. The location and shapes make sense. On the islands, you’ll find ancient examples of these landmarks. And if you’re lucky, you may figure out the mystery yourself.

Harris Tweed

Ancient trades

From the backbreaking work of crofting to the intricate weaving of Harris Tweed, Scottish Islanders have dappled in many trades and professions. Step back in time and discover how people lived, worked and created. Perhaps you’ll have the chance to learn a skill or two while visiting.
