Overview

Founded by Dutch fishermen in the 17th century, Lerwick today is a busy town and administrative centre. Handsome stone buildings—known as lodberries—line the harbour; they provided loading bays for goods, some of them illegal. The town's twisting flagstone lanes and harbour once heaved with activity, and Lerwick is still an active port today. This is also where most visitors to Shetland dock, spilling out of cruise ships, allowing passengers to walk around the town.

Overview

In bustling Kirkwall, the main town on Orkney, there's plenty to see in the narrow, winding streets extending from the harbor. The cathedral and some museums are highlights.

Overview

Today we stop at the port of Invergordon. Join us as we visit the famous Loch Ness, which is deep, dark and full of mystery, thanks to tales of the Loch Ness Monster. Why not, visit the Loch Ness Centre and Exhibition, and you’ll have time to scan the waters in search of Nessie.
