Whether it’s hunting for relics from the past or wonderful wildlife, skimming stones on a secluded beach, trying out new activities or having a picnic amidst some of the most incredible natural scenery, there’s no shortage of things to do with the family.
The great outdoors
A holiday on Orkney or Shetland is all spending time in the great outdoors and getting back to nature, so perfect for spending quality time with the family. Head for one of the many stunning beaches where there’s ample room to run and play, paddle, picnic, or watch for wildlife. For more details see our beaches page.
Activities for all the family
There’s lots of fun to be had on the water too with all manner of crafts to hire and enjoy fun on the waves or, if you prefer to keep your feet on dry land, why not hire a bike and explore on two wheels instead. Children will also love the adventure of island hopping, and the chance to keep their eyes peeled for seals, otters and numerous seabirds too. For more details see our activities page.
