SAILING FROM ROSYTH ABOARD BALMORAL
A voyage specially planned to uncover intriguing islands and geological formations of two beautiful countries in just five nights makes for a wonderful summer break. Balmoral will present you with spectacular views of The Needle and the Old Man of Hoy, two magnificent sea stacks guarding the rugged Orkney Islands; and take you to Lerwick, in the picturesque Shetlands. Once ashore, you could seek-out the gorgeous coastal scenery and sea vistas of Northmavine, unearth the ancient settlements of Jarlshof and Clickimin Broch, or even seek-out native wildlife, such as iconic Shetland ponies, seabirds, orcas and seals. Further noirth, your short, yet simply unforgettable discovery of spellbinding scenery and natural wonders concludes with gentle glides by the gorgeous, uninhabited islets of Gasholmur and Tindholmur, the unusual, arch-0shaped Dragarnir sea stack, and the picturesque village of Gasadulur, each proividing unmissable photo opportunities. Sailing past Hestur Island and Mykines, where rugged coasts are a haven for seabirds - such as gannets, puffins, Arctic terns, razorbills and guillemots - is a chance to witness nature at its unspoilt best. What's more, you get to visit Torshavn and immerse yourself in the rich Viking history of one of the world's smallets capital cities too.
