Sail the evocative and historic natural harbour of Scapa Flow; visit the charming village of Pierowall on Westray; watch seals on the rocks at Stronsay.

Gaze up at the cliffs of the West Mainland clad with razorbills and guillemots, sail through Calf Sound - where the Orcadian pirate Gow met his downfall in 1725; past islands mentioned in the Orkneying Saga.

You will learn tunes from the rich Orkney tradition in the bright saloon aboard Lady of Avenel; later, we will walk ashore to a local pub or village hall to play sessions with local musicians and meet the communities. Throughout the trip, we will enjoy locally sourced food, beautifully prepared by our onboard chef.
