Orkney Cruise

Date: 19 May 2018 12:00 - 26 May 2018 12:00

City: kirkwall, scotland

This one week cruise starts and finishes in Kirkwall in the Orkney Islands.  There will be a mixture of small towns and quiet anchorages to explore, and some beautiful scenery.

While sailing we hope to explore some of the smaller islands and anchor or stay on mooring buoys enjoying the very long daylight hours.  Sailing days are likely to be 40 miles or less, so time enough to get to an anchorage and explore a little for those who wish to, or simply to chill out on board.  See photos of some Orkney scenes we might visit below.


There are several airlines flying from the South into Kirkwall, via Aberdeen, Edinburgh or Glasgow.  Prices are mostly £200-£300 return.

Some of us plan to travel a couple of days early and stay in Kirkwall while we see some of the local archaeological sites (e.g. Skarabae a World Heritage Site, standing stones, settlements etc).
