Scotland is a favorite Redeye destination. A popular route flown more than once is Glenforsa (Isle of Mull) to Wick at the far north east tip of the Scottish mainland via the Great Glen followed by a circuit of the Orkney Islands. The return route to Glenforsa has been flown via the remote north and west coasts of Scotland with spectacular views of the Assynt and Sutherland mountains.

Flying with White-tailed Eagles round the Ross of Mull (No. 5)
Sightseeing around the Paps of Jura and the famous Whirlpool of Corryvreckan (No.6)
