Den Helder – Ullapool

This voyage includes a visit to the Orkney Isles. Setting sail from Amsterdam, this voyage will take you north to the Orkney and maybe even Shetland Islands before finishing in Ullapool. The weather in April is still very unpredictable, so this voyage really depends on wind and weather. It might mean you will have to wait out a good wind on the Orkney Islands, while sheltering in a bay, the perfect walk would be up the hill to for example the Higland Park Whiskey Distillery.

Stornoway, you might spend a day here exploring the sites of Gearannan black house village and the Callanisch standing stones. In the evening sail can be set again with destination Hoy. Orkney’s second largest Island rises dramatically from the sea with Ward Hill towering 480mtr above sea level. And if the winds have been favorable and the crossing speedy, you will have time for a stop on the Outer Hebrides. 

Set sail across the North Sea and spend some days on some of the most majestical islands of Scotland – the Orkneys and Outer Hebrides. Vikings used to roam here and history can be absorbed on the islands. The Orkneys were first inhabited the fourth millennia before Christ. Archeological finds are scattered all over the islands.  Skara Brae offers some of the best views, finds and walks.
