SCENIC ISLES & LOCHS OF SCOTLAND

ITINERARY

  • Cruise past Fingal’s Cave and Dutchman’s Cap
  • Admire the seabirds of Skye, the Orkneys and Shetlands
  • Visit remote Scottish destinations

 

 

Balmoral takes you on a discovery of scenic sights and wildlife found close to home, yet off the beaten track, amongst the rugged and remote isles and lochs of Scotland. Some of the UK’s most beautiful scenery will come into view as you sail Scottish waters; see the wild, unspoilt landscapes of the Small Isles and Loch Hourn, as well as the remarkable rock formations of the Old Man of Hoy, The Needle, Dutchman’s Cap and Fingal’s Cave. At each of these sea stacks and cliffs, look out for large colonies of seabirds in their natural habitat.

When you get to head ashore, seabird havens await discovery in the Orkneys, Shetlands and the Isle of Skye, with their craggy interiors and coastlines. RSPB Sumburgh Head in the Shetlands, where fulmars, puffins and various other bird species live and breed, is a particular highlight. Capture the coastal scenes of Northmavine, the Shetlands’ northernmost point, too; and take in the Orkney’s historic highlights, such as Neolithic Skara Brae and ceremonial stone circles of Stenness and the Ring of Brodgar. Meanwhile, from Ullapool, opt to take a boat trip on the glacier-carved Loch Glencoul, or perhaps see the tumbling waters of Eas a’ Chual Aluinn – Britain’s highest waterfall – up close.
