Sailing holidays Z02: East coast Scotland & Orkney Islands
A sailing holiday along the Scottish east coast with authentic fishing villages and working harbours like Peterhead and Wick, but also the atmospheric small harbour of Whitehills. The day distances vary, depending on weather and tide, between 25 and 47 miles. The sailing area, the Moray Firth, is full of marine life, and we have seen many seals, special dolphins, but also orcas and whales before. From the mainland we will cross over to the Orkney Islands. To do this, we have to sail over the Pentland Firth, notorious for its strong tidal streams, which can reach 16 knots with spring tide, very special so to say.
Next we will sail into the shelter of Scapa Flow, where we will spend the night on a very small island where we can take a short walk with beautiful views of the island Hoy and Scapa Flow. The next day we can take a long walk to the famous ‘Old man of Hoy’ with spectacular views over the ocean and the steep cliffs. Via the atmospheric port of Stromness we will sail outside to the island of Rousay, a beautiful sailing trip and a rustic spot. The next day we can take a nice walk to an estate with a beautiful garden and trees, which are fairly rare here in the north. Or alternatively, the enthusiast can visit some impressive excavations of the Bronze Age. The last day we will sail a short distance to Kirkwall, where we end this sailing holiday.
