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.

Day 2

Dundee, Scotland
Arrive: 0830hrs Depart: 2230hrs Magellan's first call is the historic Tayside port-city of Dundee, where some Scottish passengers will come aboard. Explore this engaging city, home to Captain Scott’s Royal Research Ship Discovery, a beautifully restored example of the days when maritime adventures were less luxurious affairs.

Day 3

Kirkwall, Orkney Isles
Arrive: 1200hrs Depart: 2200hrs At lunchtime, Magellan arrives in Kirkwall, Orkney's historic capital. Wander the streets and marvel at magnificent St Magnus Cathedral, or join an excursion to fabled Scapa Flow, Churchill's famous Barriers or the Italian Chapel.

Day 4

Lerwick, Shetland Isles
Arrive: 0700hrs Depart: 1700hrs Magellan's next northern island call is the Shetland Isles capital, Lerwick. Spend time exploring this rugged but enchanting town, or join an excursion to the 3,000 year-old archaeological site at Jarlshof, with its Bronze and Iron Age remains.

Day 5

Torshavn, Faroes
Arrive: 0900hrs Depart: 1800hrs Tiny, Toytown-like Torshavn is the capital of the Faroe Islands. Explore its confusion of lanes, narrow passages and black-tarred houses with green turf on the roofs, or join an excursion, perhaps to cross the famous Bridge across the Atlantic connecting the main island of Streymoy with the spectacular scenery and ancient wooden churches of smaller Eysturoy.

At sea
Spend today relaxing on board.
