Scotland. The land of Tartan, Braveheart, lochs and highlands, a perfect destination for some fine walking.

Once on board enjoy eight nights exploring the wilder and more remote side of Scotland. After a day at sea we reach Lerwick on the Shetland Islands, where we meet our local guide and head to St Ninians Island offering stunning coastal scenery and for the those that enjoy bird watching, this is a perfect stop. 

Following a night of sailing we arrive into Kirkwall on the Orkney Islands, which is steeped in folklore and historic tales, where we walk across moorlands to the famous Scara Brae.

Ullapool, 45 minutes north of Inverness offers what could be our purest highlands day as we head into the hills for Stac Pollaidh. With its sandstone pinnacles and rock formations sitting proudly above Loch Lurgainn for those idyllic highland views.

Our final stop, Invergordon is located at the head of Cromarty Firth in the stunning Scottish Highlands. A perfect place to discover coastal walking and castles of old before our final day at sea and our home port.
