Short Breaks

McCabes are offering three new
short-break holidays next summer.  
Do join us on one or more!


Summer 2017; McCabe are offering a selection of short-break holidays designed with our regular travellers in mind.

We plan our first Scottish short-break holidays in June and July 2017. One will be to the ancient pilgrimage island of Iona, and the second one will be based in Edinburgh and will explore the Border Abbeys and more. Dates are such that it is possible to combine the two short breaks for an extended stay in Scotland.

The third short-break will be a visit to Spain which is an introduction to the ancient Camino pilgrim route to Santiago de Compostela.

This summer our short break holidays are fully subscribed, so we are launching these early to give you an opportunity to plan ahead.

Just call if you are interested and we will be happy to hold a place for you for up to two weeks while you decide.




19 - 23 June & 3 - 7 July 2017


A night in Glasgow and three nights in the Scottish islands.  The highlight will be a day on Iona with our own service in the historic abbey, but we will also explore Mull, now famous for "Balamory" (!) and sail to see Fingal's cave on the neighbouring island of Staffa, inspiration for Mendelssohn's Scottish symphony.   The cost of this holiday is £595 with pretty much everything included, except your travel to Glasgow.
