Z03: Discover the Orkney’s, Fair Isle & Shetland Islands
An unique sailing holiday, from the cozy village of Kirkwall we will sail between the islands to the East. The wind will determine the exact destination and depending on the weather we will cross over to Fair Isle the next day, one of the most beautiful Shetland Islands, a distance of about 38 miles.
Fair Isle is definitely a highlight where we will stay for a day to make a walk to the spectacular north coast. The atmosphere on the Island is unique, there is nothing in the harbour except stunning nature and a Bird Observatory, which is also a relaxed bar where we have a beautiful view of the harbour (with many seals) and where fans can learn more about all the special birds (such as the puffin or Skua). In the evening we will walk from the harbour up the cliff where we can see hundreds of Puffins go ashore on their way to their nest, due to the lack of tourists we can approach them up to one meter, an unforgettable experience.
Thereafter we will sail to the Orkney Islands. On the remote the island of Rousay,, we can make 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.
Next we will sail the outside route to 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. We will end this sailing voyage in atmospheric Stromness.
The above schedule is subject to weather, wind and tide. The daily sailing distances are between 20 and 38 miles.
