The picture-postcard village has a large natural harbour where colourful boats bob on the waves watched over by brightly painted buildings backed by woodland-fringed hills. Tobermory is the capital of the Isle of Mull, the second largest island of the Inner Hebrides, whose diverse landscape ranges from high mountains and wild moorland, to wave-lashed sea cliffs and sandy beaches. Neighbouring Iona is the tiny island where St. Columba first brought Christianity to Scotland in 563 AD.

Day 4 - Kirkwall, Orkney Islands

Arrive 9:00am. Depart 6:00pm. The capital of the amazing Orkney archipelago, the Royal Burgh of Kirkwall sits almost exactly in the centre of the mainland, dividing the island into east and west. The magnificent red brick St. Magnus Cathedral, a legacy of the town’s rich Viking heritage, dominates Kirkwall’s skyline. In its shadow, the town is a cluster of grey stone buildings lining narrow, flagstone streets. Explore these beautiful islands on an optional excursion, where history can be traced back 6,000 years through Neolithic standing stones and the magnificent archaeological site of Skara Brae. Modern day Orkney is a hive of creative activity and its craft workshops are perfect for a special souvenir.

Day 5 - Tórshavn, Faroe Islands

Arrive 9:00am. Depart 5:00pm. Once the site of an annual Viking gathering, Tórshavn is today one of the smallest and most pleasant capital cities in the world. It sits on the southern tip of Streymoy, one of eighteen islands in the Faroese archipelago. Tinganes is the old part of the town, where characteristic red wooden buildings with turf-covered roofs cluster on a narrow peninsula. It juts into the natural harbour around which the modern town has been built. The Faroe Islands have a wild and dramatic landscape, a magnificent backdrop to optional excursions showing how islanders live on this remote and unspoiled archipelago.

Arrive 9:00am. Depart 7:00pm. (*Ship at anchorage. Passengers land by tender). Originally settled by the Norsemen in the 9th century, Lerwick was founded as an unofficial marketplace to service 17th century Dutch herring fleets. The core of the town is a maze of narrow, flagstone streets set behind 18th century sandstone buildings overlooking the busy harbour. Hay’s Dock, once the centre of Shetland’s fishing and boat building industries, is home to the marvellous Shetland Museum and Archives. On the southern tip of the Mainland the extraordinary archaeological site of Jarlshof tells the story of 4,000 years of human history on this remote archipelago with a wealth of wildlife.
