SAILING FROM DUNDEE ABOARD MAGELLAN
This springtime cruise combines coastal scenery with fascinating history. Kirkwall, capital of the Orkneys, has a rich Viking heritage and is your gateway to Skara Brae, a Stone Age settlement that predates the Pyramids. Lerwick offers the chance to visit Clickimin Broch pictish fort or Jarlshof – one of the most remarkable archaeological sites ever excavated. Torshavn, capital of the Faroes, is a modern town yet retains so much of its character it would still be recognisable to its early Viking settlers. We call at Newcastle on our way home.
