Spend a week exploring three remote, beautiful islands on this late-spring cruise from Dundee during which 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, and your cruise will end with a visit to the historic city of Newcastle. 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.

Faroes & Northern Isles Itinerary
Day One – Depart from Dundee
Board Magellan in Dundee, today, settle in to your cabin and relax as your cruise begins.
Day Two – Kirkwall, Orkney Isles
Magellan’s first port of call is 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 Three – Lerwick, Shetland Isles
Magellan’s second 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 Four – Torshavn, Faroes
Your third island call is tiny Torshavn, 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.
