From Amsterdam to Ullapool via the Orkney Islands. Setting sail from Amsterdam, this 2-week voyage will take you north to the Orkney and maybe even Shetland Islands before finishing in Ullapool. The weather in April is still very unpredictable, so this voyage really depends on wind and weather. This journey is all about sailing the North Sea and discovering the Orkney Islands in Early springtime. Open for all ages, minimum age 15 years.

Ports

With more bicycles than people, cycling is an integral part of Amsterdam’s DNA. Hop on and see the city like the locals do! Winding waterways, idyllic bridges and historic buildings – one of the most memorable ways to truly see Amsterdam is from the canals. Amsterdam has a full cultural agenda showcasing the very best festivals, nightlife, exhibitions & events, plus there is enough practical tourist info, hotel, museum, excursion & attraction listings, you won’t miss a thing!

Ullapool, despite its small size is the largest settlement for many miles around and a major tourist destination of Scotland. The village was founded in 1788 as a herring port by the British Fisheries Society. A few Cordyline australis or New Zealand cabbage trees are grown in the town and are often mistaken for palms. The harbour is still the edge of the village, used as a fishing port, yachting haven, and ferry port. Enjoy the beautiful surroundings here.
