Idyllic island outposts
Spend a week exploring three remote, beautiful islands on this late-spring cruise from Newcastle. After calling at the historic Scottish port of Dundee, Magellan will follow the Scottish coastline north to Orkney. Step ashore in Kirkwall to see St Magnus Cathedral, or cross the island to gaze out across the historic waters of Scapa Flow, before Magellan cruises further north to Shetland. Explore the island capital, Lerwick, or join an optional shore excursion to the remarkable archeological site at Jarlshof.
Your final port of call will be Torshavn, the tiny capital of the Faroe Isles, a birdwatchers’ paradise in the heart of the Gulf Stream. Each island you visit will offer up an enchanting mix of village life, local traditions and some of the most astonishing coastal scenery anywhere in Europe.
