Fly-drive Holidays by McKinlay Kidd

Land on the sand on Barra

Flying makes our beautiful remote islands much more accessible for a holiday of any length, perhaps enabling you to take a short break to explore Shetland and Orkney in the far north or to soak up a whisky-packed long weekend on Islay (though do let us arrange taxis if you don’t have a designated driver). Our Scottish and Irish island airports are a world-away from most modern flying experiences. Barra is the only airport in the world where you literally land on the seashore – tide permitting, of course. Fly into Scotland, Ireland or Northern England and we’ll have a car waiting for you to start your holiday as soon as you arrive. Your pre-planned, personalised itinerary will have everything
