Excursion package. Available for the "Jewels of the Scottish Isles" voyage. The excursions can be preordered or bought separately onboard pending of availability.

Depart Kirkwall and head into the west of Mainland, Orkney’s largest island. This excursion passes through gentle rolling landscape and into the Neolithic Heartland of Orkney; an area designated as a World Heritage Site due to its wealth of pre-historic archaeology. Passing the Standing Stones of Stenness, we will stop at the Ring of Brodgar; a huge ceremonial circle of stones dating back almost 5000 years. We then continue on to the 5000-year-old village of Skara Brae, beautifully interpreted in the visitor center. See the remarkable dwellings revealed from beneath the sand dunes by storms only 150 years ago. Back in Kirkwall, we will visit one of the area distilleries, get a tour and taste of the precious drops. This allows us to taste Scotland's northernmost distilled spirits. Includes transport in coach, entrance to Skara Brae and spirit tasting (gin or whisky). Duration 7-8 hours.

Arriving to the main town in the early morning, we offer an optional excursion that takes us along the wild scenery of the Outer Hebrides and ancient history in the form of the Neolithic Callanish Standing Stones. Expect the guides to share many stories behind the sights we pass. Includes transport in coach. Duration: 4 hour
