Overview
Enquire About The Jewels of the Scottish Isles by Albatros

When Do You Want To Go?

On this special 8-day voyage with Albatros, you will get a unique chance to visit no less than seven Scottish islands. Each one is begging to tell you stories about a dramatic past reaching back millions of years to a birth from hot molten lava, millenniums to stone age dwellings – or just 12 years to create splendid single malt whiskies.

Your journey begins in the port of Greenock on the Scottish West Coast. Embarking on Albatros’ expedition vessel Ocean Atlantic you'll head for the island of Islay, home to several world-famous brands of peaty whiskies. Further north you'll visit Oban and Iona and onwards to Staffa and Rùm with their dramatic displays of volcanic eruptions. During evening lectures on board, you will gain an understanding into their geological history.

Your journey continues to the Outer Hebrides to visit remote Hirta in the St. Kilda archipelago and Lewis in the town of Stornoway. North of the mainland lie the rugged and scenic islands of Orkney, home to some of Europe’s oldest preserved dwellings – and Scotland’s northernmost whisky factory! The voyage ends in Aberdeen, in mainland Scotland. This spring cruise onboard Ocean Atlantic is the ultimate journey in the exciting Scottish waters, complete with whisky, wildlife and spectacular landscapes!
