Oban-Orkneys-Scottish Coast-Blyth. You will anchor with the Oosterschelde at small islands, visit interesting towns, taste whiskey in a distillery and enjoy the rough nature. You will spot grey seals, gannets, shags, sea eagles and puffins. And maybe when you are lucky even sperm whales, orca’s, minke whales and pilot whales. Open to all ages, minimum age 18 years.
Oban (meaning ‘little bay’ in Gaelic) is a small harbor town on the west coast of Scotland, famous for its whiskey distillery. The town occupies a beautiful setting in the Firth of Lorn, and is a perfect place to find shelter from the Atlantic. Walking around town is a pleasure, and close by you’ll find mountains, castles, dramatic coastal scenery, and McCaig’s tower that resembles the Colosseum. In the first week of August, the town plays host to West Highland week, a yearly sailing regatta.
Blyth is a town in southeast Northumberland, England. On the coast, to the south of the River Blyth, where its name comes from. The main industries were coal mining and shipbuilding, with the salt trade, fishing and the railways also playing an role. Today, the port handles up to 1.5 million tonnes of cargo.
