A complete 5 night Hebridean ‘end-to-end’ holiday, from Glasgow by air, including flydrive car.
The Outer Hebrides fly drive Island Hopper is your unique opportunity to explore all the islands between Barra and Lewis using a hire car that you pick up at Barra airport and drop off in Lewis, or vice versa. This means your Outer Hebrides fly drive holiday will include either a take-off or landing on Barra beach airport, the only airport in the world where scheduled flights land and depart on a beach.
Designed as a 5 night holiday but with the option to add more nights if you wish, the island hopper route is only 140 miles from start to finish. This gives you plenty of time to explore all of the beauty that the Outer Hebrides has to offer. At the end of each day, you will find a comfortable bed ready and waiting for you. Whether you choose B&B’s, hotels, inns or a mix of properties from our selected list, you’re sure to enjoy wonderful hospitality.
